Representatives from more than 50 companies and agencies, including Nike, RU Villa, the Chicago Zoological Society, Job Corps and the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership, will accept applications for active job openings, summer internships and career exploration opportunities. Representatives from the building trades, such as Pipe Fitters Training Center, will be on hand to discuss apprenticeships.
