CRYSTAL LAKE - Area jobseekers are invited to attend a job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday in the gym/multipurpose room at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

Sponsored by MCC’s Career Services and the McHenry County Workforce Network, the job fair will feature more than 40 employers from various fields.

The fair is open to MCC students and community residents. Applicants are encouraged to bring their résumés and dress professionally. Opportunities for both full-time and part-time positions ranging from entry level to professional abilities will be available.

According to Evette Thompson, MCC’s coordinator of Career Services, jobseekers should plan to arrive early, meet employers, take notes and ask for employers’ business cards.

“No one should overlook any opportunities available to them,” Thompson said. “You must sell yourself to the employers and remember to network, network, network.”
