I know you all missed Coffee & Careers last week, so we’re going to make it up to you. We got two employers coming this Friday (11/12/21), and you definitely do not want to miss this!
Starting off with the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, or ISAC, they are an organization within the state that seeks to increase the average of adults with a postsecondary education. ISAC Provides Illinois students with information and assistance to help make education beyond high school accessible and more affordable. ISAC has locations in Deerfield, Chicago, and Springfield. If you would like to get real work experience that is for a good cause, then ISAC is the organization for you!
Additonally, we will also be hosting DCFS. DCFS is the Department of Children and Family Services. DCFS seeks to protect children who are reported to be abused or neglected and to increase their families’ capacity to safely care for them; provide for the well-being of children in our care; provide appropriate, permanent families as quickly as possible for those children who cannot safely return home; support early intervention and child abuse prevention activities and work in partnerships with communities to fulfill this mission.
We highly encourage students who are interested in serving in the child welfare field to attend this event, and network with the DCFS professionals. Topics such as career advice or employment can be discussed in person.
As always, students are encouraged to attend this event. This is a great way to get connected with local businesses and leaders within our community. We will be holding the event in the career success center, at N204 in Tower Hall. Speakers will be available to talk with students starting at 10 am all the way through 11:30 am. FREE coffee and donuts will be offered to all who stop by. We hope to see you there!
