Center on Halsted and Brave Space Alliance will hold the annual WERQ! LGBTQ Job Fair on Friday, Sept. 17-18, at the Center. Sessions will be 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m.
Last year, more than 50 major corporations, small businesses, government agencies and nonprofits participated. More than 200 job-seekers were in attendance, ranging from entry-level, to those wanting change and/or advancement, and some looking for a second career.
Based on considerations of safety for exhibitors, participants, staff and volunteers,WERQ! has been moved online to the Zoom virtual platform.
Exhibitors will have access to a Zoom Break-out Room for sessions. The number of available Break-out Rooms each day is limited and will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to educate job seekers about their businesses, collect resumes, schedule interviews and recruit employee candidates.
