Rockford job fair packed with job seekers


By Jessica Geraci

ROCKFORD (WREX) -  With unemployment as high as it is, job fairs tend to be pretty crowded places with new and experienced job lookers.

Rockford College hosted a career and internship fair today inside Regents Hall.  Savant Capital Management and OSF St. Anthony Medical Center were just a couple of the many businesses that handed out information and met candidates.  One experienced job hunter, Jacqueline Vensil has some advice for other future teachers looking for a position.  "Don't be afraid to keep the doors open, continue subbing, continue what you want to do, work with kids, accept part time positions, and just build up your resume and don't give up, keep on trying."

Job seekers could also add their resumes to a resume book that was handed out to participating employers.
