PEORIA (WEEK) — Peoria Express Employment Professionals hosted their job fair today in Peoria Heights.

Their mission was to connect as many employers to employees in various sectors.

Members of the Express office emphasized how many opportunities were available and the benefits that came with them.

“Because of supply and demand the pay rates are going up. There’s sign on bonuses being offered and extra benefits, so it’s a good time to be a job seeker,” says franchise owner Cindy Neil.

“We desperately need general labors, manufacturers, forklift drivers, machine operators, receptionists, legal secretaries, I mean I could be here all day. We have 200 job openings and we need those filled now,” says employment specialist Kathryn Fife.

Express held on site interviews in hopes of hiring job seekers on the spot.

The event included food trucks, Tropical Sno, as well as raffle items and more.

Express Professionals have not slated a date for their next job fair, but the same goods will be at the next hiring event.
