If you're out of work and looking for work there's a chance this week to change your status.

The Freeport Area Career Fair takes Wednesday, July 30th, from 3:00-8:00 p.m. at Highland Community College. HCC is located at 2998 West Pearl City Road in Freeport. More than 35 employers, employment and staffing agencies, and education and training providers are expected to attend. You'll find opportunities manufacturing, health care, customer service, logistics, clerical, sales and other job sectors.

Those in Freeport and Stephenson County who are looking for employment should check it out. But even if you're in Winnebago County (and willing to drive) it might make sense to attend.

You can find more info at The Workforce Connection's web site. A full list of expected attendees is below.
