The McDonough County Jobapalooza job fair will be held Thursday, March 30, from 1-6 p.m. in the Spoon River College Outreach Center in Macomb.

Multiple employers, including retailers, nonprofits, trades and industries, as well as many others, will be in attendance to answer questions, accept applications and resumes, and in some cases, to interview and possibly hire applicants on the spot. Full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions are available.

Individuals who need assistance with building or rebuilding their resume will have the opportunity to participate in two workshops prior to the March 30 event (dates TBD). In addition, there will be support stations on the day of the event to help job-seekers with various tasks, such as printing their resumes on quality paper.

Jobapalooza is being sponsored by the McDonough County Quality of Life Committee, Community News Brief, Lisa Ward (formerly of Magnolias), Macomb Area Chamber of Commerce, Macomb Area Economic Development Corp., Macomb Park District, Spoon River College, Western Illinois Regional Council, Western Illinois University and Workforce Development.
