Meeting our Community's Needs - Neighbor to Neighbor

Help for job seekers

PRC provided job search assistance to nearly 400 DuPage neighbors last year. 

Job Assistance

The Job Assistance program at People's Resource Center (PRC) helps unemployed residents of DuPage County find and keep a job.  We provide workshops and one-on-one job search coaching. We also partner with area employers to connect pre-screened, qualified candidates with employers seeking to hire. 

Eligibility 

To participate in PRC's Job Assistance program, you must register as a PRC client, attend an Orientation workshop, and make a commitment to follow through on a job search action plan.

How to Get Started

To get started, call PRC at 630-682-5402 ext. 333. Leave a message with your name and phone number, and someone will call you back to help you register for an Orientation session.  

What to Expect

When you attend a Job Assistance Program Orientation, you'll learn about our job search workshops and our Career Resource Center.  You'll also learn how you can connect with one of our job coaches. Job coaches are volunteers trained to help you with essential skills such as writing resume and cover letters, completing application forms, improving interview skills, finding job leads, and conducting internet job searches.   

Lunch and Learn:

The Job Assistance Program hosts Lunch & Learn monthly, both in Wheaton and Westmont.  The Lunch & Learn is a place for job seekers to encourage each other, hear from HR and industry professionals, and to exchange advice on the job search process. Interested clients MUST call 630-682-5402 x333 to reserve their place. Lunch & Learn is held at:
