Jobs are scarce, but they do exist.
There are plenty of interesting positions posted on npo.net, but what's interesting to me is how jobs in certain types of work, or certain neighborhoods, are being advertised via niche web sites.
The Greater Humboldt Park Community of Wellness is spreading the word about open positions for a bike shop manager, a couple of research jobs and a community liaison position with the Active Transportation Alliance.
Claretian Associates is promoting jobs at the soon-to-open Victory Centre of South Chicago, an assisted living facility with 112 apartments. Available positions include nurses, CNAs, office manager, receptionist, food service staff, maintenance staff, community life manager, among others.
Youth from all over Chicago could connect to summer jobs via the notice by Logan Square Neighborhood Assn. about jobs through the Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Park District, After School Matters and the Department of Family and Support Services.
A few more jobs are on the New Communities Program site, including one for an Elev8 school program director.
It would be interesting to know how well these listings are working for the employers. If you have information, please pass it along in a comment.
