Plenty of Jobs Are Available

Figures collected by the Conference Board indicate Illinois job vacancies advertised across the Internet total 203,000, says Greg Rivara, spokesman for the Illinois Department of Employment Security.

“Employers value highly skilled people who take responsibility and accept accountability at work,” he says. “These are the individuals who are in the best position to succeed in this new marketplace.”

Rivara says 85 percent of the jobs are full-time. The figures include, but are not limited to, the IDES help-wanted web site.
