    Have you heard the unemployment rate in Illinois is dropping and the number of new job openings is increasing? You may be wondering where those new openings are, because finding work is not getting any easier for your.


    If that is your situation, this post will help you find out where you should be searching for work and what industries have the highest demand for workers, as well as the highest salaries and opportunities for professional growth.

    The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) helps unemployed workers and recently graduated students to focus their energies and time on the industries and job openings that offer the best chances of success. We will discuss in this series of articles four of the main career and training resources available to Illinois residents. These are the Career Information System, the Career Click, the CIS Junior and the Illinois Skills Match Database.

    Career Information System

    The Career Information System offers unemployed workers the opportunity of planning their training and courses to match the employment opportunities with the best chances of success. It also offers valuable information on occupations, education and financial aid available to Illinois workers. For instance, CIS offers 530 descriptions of professions and occupations including new and emerging occupations you may not know about.

    This also includes a Reality Check tool which help you match available occupations with the type of lifestyle you want to live. CIS also helps you write an effective resume and provides an online portfolio you can use to store your training and education results. Another great feature of CIS is it provides links to employers nationwide, not only in Illinois. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, CIS can still be useful to you, as it provides the know-how you need to start your own business.

    Career Click

    Career Click offers Illinois residents with a quick and useful guide to the jobs and training programs with the highest demand. It also allows you to search for your dream job and see how likely you are to find an opening in your home county. You can also use Career Click to determine what skills you will need to qualify for your target job and where you can get the training you need. Although there are no job listings in Career Click it will provide you a guide of all the main occupations divided into 16 career clusters so you can determine what industry sector is the best for you.
