Chicago Area Project manages Career Development, Training & Employment Services (CDTES) at 605 South Albany Avenue. It is an employment program promoting economic independence and self-sufficiency for low-income individuals. Its clients must be receiving food stamps and TANF benefits, and be recommended to the program by the Illinois Dept. of Human Services.
CDTES is now partnering with Manpower, an independent job placement service. Manpower installed a computerized kiosk in the Chicago Area Project office. This electronic job-search equipment is available for use by any community residents at no cost Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
Job search candidates can use the Manpower computer kiosk to apply directly for positions in high-demand fields such as healthcare, renewable energy, and logistics, as well as many others. Applicants can search for jobs and follow on-screen instructions to complete a job-seeker profile and application.
For information on CDTES job preparation and placement services and for use of the Manpower kiosk, call 312/588-3860, log onto www.cdtes.org, or visit the office at 605 South Albany Avenue.
