People ages 16 and up who are ready to enter the workforce or advance to a better job are welcome to attend multiple workshops that will help them prepare for their next job interview. Western Illinois Regional Council (WIRC), in collaboration with Workforce Innovation Board of Western Illinois and Illinois WorkNet Center, are offering job interview training workshops to the public.
The community workshops will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15, and at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22, 2023. Both workshops will be held at WIRC, 133 West Jackson Street, Macomb. The workshops are free, and people of all income levels, ages 16 and up, are welcome to attend.
Anyone who cannot attend on those dates is welcome to schedule a one-on-one appointment with WIRC by calling 309-837-2997 or emailing [email protected].
WIRC officials say these workshops will be especially helpful to those planning to interview for a job at Jobapalooza in Macomb on March 30 at Spoon River Outreach Center. “These workshops are helpful to anyone who is job hunting, but the timing is perfect for job seekers going to Jobapalooza,” said Jamie Roth, WIRC Public Relations Manager. “After the workshop, they will know how to write a resume that reflects their skill sets, how to write an effective cover letter, what to wear to an interview, and other important job-hunting skills.”
Those who want to attend are encouraged to save their seat by filling out a short online form at wirpc.org/workshop/, calling WIRC at 309-837-2997, or emailing [email protected].
