Elk Grove Township’s Employment Support Center was launched in the spring of 2016, and assists individuals who are unemployed, underemployed, and those who are seeking new job opportunities.
Township residents are encouraged to utilize free employment services, which include career counseling, assistance with resumes and cover letters, and access to job search resources and reference materials. Computers are also available for job seekers to conduct online job searches and fill out applications.
The Employment Support Center is located at Elk Grove Township, 2400 S Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights, and also boasts ample networking opportunities, job fairs, in addition to career seminars and workshops.
