BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL (WEEK) - As people continue to face unemployment during the pandemic, one company is providing new job opportunities for their community.
Saturday in Bloomington-Normal, Connect Transit held a career fair open to the public.
Connect Transit Operations Supervisor Brandon Miles said within the next three weeks the company is looking to hire around 10 bus operators and up to five mechanics.
"I think its important economically because a lot of folks are unfortunately out of work and we are in need of some employment right now," said Miles. "I think it's just a good opportunity for the community to come in and hopefully get a new position."
For those who missed Saturdays event, Connect Transit will hold another job fair January 23rd, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
