More than 70 major corporations, small businesses, government agencies and nonprofits are expected for the third annual in the Windy City Times WERQ! LGBTQ job fair Friday, Sept. 29, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted, Chicago. In 2016, more than 500 people attended the Job Fair.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is hosted by Windy City Times with Center on Halsted, MB Financial Bank, US Bank, Uber, Pride Action Tank, Chicago House, Association of Latino/as Motivating Action, Affinity Community Services, AIDS Foundation of Chicago and Out & Equal Chicagoland.

Exhibitors in 2016 included, among many others: AON Hewitt, AT&T, Chicago Marriott, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Gap Inc. and Old Navy, Google, Groupon, Hilton Worldwide, Howard Brown Health, Hyatt Corporation, KPMG, Lyric Opera, Mariano's, The Ritz-Carlton, Speciality's Cafe & Bakery, Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., United Airlines, Vienna Beef, Walgreens, WBEZ and Zurich North America.

This is the third WERQ! LGBTQ Job Fair. The first focused primarily on youth experiencing homelessness, and in 2016 there was a special emphasis on youth, trans and seniors. This year's fair is open to all LGBTQ and allies, and will coincide with the launch of a #HireTrans local initiative.

The Center on Halsted computer lab will be open all that day for people to use for working on and printing their resumes.

Booths at the job fair are $95 for businesses, $75 for nonprofits. Deadline is Sept. 1. Email Tracy Baim for details: editor@windycitymediagroup.com, or call 773-871-7610. Businesses can register and individuals wishing to attend can RSVP by emailing editor@windycitymediagroup.com .
