Rend Lake College Annual Job Search Party set for April 5

Job seekers are invited to visit with nearly 40 employers at Rend Lake College’s annual Job Search Party from 3 – 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 5 at the Mt. Vernon Holiday Inn.

RLC is partnering with WSIL-TV3 to host the event, which drew approximately 400 businesses and applicants to Mt. Vernon last year. Those planning to attend the free event should dress business casual and bring several copies of their résumé. Attendees will also be entered into a drawing for several door prizes.

“Rend Lake College is proud to, once again, partner with WSIL to host the Job Search Party at the Mt. Vernon Holiday Inn,” said Corey Phillips, Director of the RLC MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon. “This is an incredible opportunity for any and all job seekers, students, or even someone looking for a career change. We have an excellent group of employers this year and we are expecting another great turnout this year. We hope to see everyone on April 5th.

Businesses still have time to register as a vendor at the Job Search Party. To do so, contact Whitney Schulte at 618-244-9525, Ext. 2000 or[email protected].
