In Jasper's ongoing quest for excellence in our industry, we consistently provide job opportunities and full paid health insurance in all communities we serve
Niles, IL (Vocus) November 3, 2010
National roofing contractor Jasper Contractors Inc. is bringing 50 new jobs to the Chicago area, all of which have the potential to exceed $100,000 annually. Along with quality career opportunities, Jasper also provides 100 percent paid health insurance for every employee and their families. Jasper Contractors Inc. is bringing 360 new jobs to seven markets nationwide.
Throughout November, Jasper will host local job fairs in Chicago, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Colorado Springs, Colo.
“In Jasper’s ongoing quest for excellence in our industry, we consistently provide job opportunities and full paid health insurance in all communities we serve,” says Brian Wedding, CEO of Jasper Contractors Inc. “We hope our presence here will help put Chicago to work.”
In April 2010, the State of Illinois Department of Human Services and Heartland Human Care Services created “Put Illinois to Work,” a subsidized, work-relief program to combat the economic recession affecting Illinois. Since its inception, the program has employed more than 25,000 employees, according to an analysis of the program by the Heartland Alliance.
Funding for the program is expected to dry up by the end of November. And although Illinois’ unemployment rate dropped below 10 percent in September for the first time since April 2009, when the funding for this program runs out, thousands of workers across the state may once again be looking for work.
“Jasper only expands to markets where we can establish relationships and provide long-term opportunities,” says Wedding. “These open positions are an example of our immediate and positive effect on local communities.”
Chicago-area residents are invited to speak with a Jasper representative at two upcoming job fairs:
-Jasper Job Fair – Monday, Nov. 8 at 8535 West Higgins Road, Chicago, Ill., from 6-9 p.m.
-RCI/Jasper Recruiting Job Fair – Tuesday, Nov. 9 at Doubletree Hotel Chicago – Wood Dale/Itasca, 1200 N. Mittel Blvd., Wood Dale, Ill., at 7 a.m.
