Getting noticed in a competitive job market might seem impossible. But with training from the Youth Job Center of Evanston’s Summer Employment Series, job seekers can find success in their job searches, even in a down economy.

The Youth Job Center continues its Summer Employment Series on Tuesday, July 26, with a workshop discussion about the “Lay of the Land” in the current economy, and what employers are looking for from entry-level jobseekers. With information presented by Aerotek, the YJC will assist job seekers in being job ready when facing the current economy as an entry level job seeker. The workshop will be held at the Evanston Public Library from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

“This workshop will be discussing the ‘lay of the land’ in the current economy, and what employers are looking for from entry level jobseekers,” says Employer Outreach Coordinator Jordan Burghardt. “It’s the YJC’s goal to assist job seekers in being truly ‘job ready’ when facing the current economy as an entry level job seeker.”

Additional workshops will follow in August, all of which are free and open to all ages.

The Youth Job Center is a nonprofit agency in Evanston that assists job seekers ages 14-25 in finding employment.  The YJC also works with employers to help them meet their staffing needs by referring applicants who are trained in basic job skills and ready to get to work.
