• Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce Announces Virtual Job Fair

    The Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce announces their first ever Virtual Job Fair (VJF).  The event will take place on October 6 and 7 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.  This event is open to Chamber member businesses to participate and to the general public to attend.

    “We have heard from our Chamber businesses that they have had trouble finding employees during this time, so we decided to put together our first annual Chamber Virtual Job Fair” said Dawn Mushill, Executive Director, Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce.  “We also know there are many people looking for jobs so our goal is to connect the two”.  The Chamber is working with Illinois WorkNET and Madison County Employment & Training to pull this event together.

    By signing up for this event, participating businesses will be able to post their open jobs and answer any questions at the event’s Q&A.  And when job seekers complete the registration, they will be able to view all jobs within the Illinois WorkNET database. 
    “We feel like we will be able to capture more people at the VJF than we would have been able to at an in-person event.  The event will be recorded and shared so people can watch it after the event” said Mushill.      

    More information will follow as it becomes available.  The Chamber’s website is www.troymaryvillecoc.com and will continually be updated with more information as it becomes available or feel free to call the Chamber office at 618-667-8769.
