Org. launches event for entry-level jobs in Chicago

Posted on May 30, 2011

Center for Cultural Interchange (CCI), the nonprofit student exchange organization, is holding Chicago-based hiring events for U.S. businesses needing to fill entry-level jobs in Chicago.

They will also be assisting with recruiting for seasonal jobs in Illinois.

U.S.-based businesses look for employees to fill seasonal gaps such as those in the following industries: hospitality and tourism, amusements and entertainment, restaurant and food operations, warehousing and distribution, and seafood production and fisheries.

“Our hiring events are such a fantastic way to help employers connect with international students interested in experiencing the U.S., while also finalizing seasonal hiring needs,” says Erin Nyhan, CCI Work Programs services director. “It’s a great opportunity to interview students in a comfortable environment and learn about all the benefits of hiring students with J-1 visas.”

During these events, the interview and hiring process can be conducted with international university students via web-based video conferencing from CCI’s headquarters in Chicago, or from the comfort of an employer’s own office. Employers can expect their winter program hires to be available for work between December 2011 and April 2012. Participants arrive on CCI sponsored J-1 visas from the following countries: Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Paraguay.

2011 Hometown Hiring Party events in Chicago include:

July 19-20
August 16-17
September 20-21

Other dates are available upon request. Interested employers should contact CCI as soon as possible in order to ensure the highest quality candidates for their jobs are available for interviewing. CCI will promote positions to the overseas candidates, and employers should act quickly.
