Greater Peoria Area Holding Hiring Extravaganza

 Greater Peoria Area Focuses on Putting Central IL Back to Work

Co-sponsored by the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce, along with the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council, Discover Peoria, Goodwill, CareerLink, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Greater Peoria Hiring Extravaganza will take place on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

The concept is simple: on September 1, each participating organization will place purple balloons outside of their business to signify they are actively hiring! An ongoing list of participating businesses is maintained on the GPEDC website. Upon registration, companies will be added to this list provided this form is completed, confirming your participation prior to August 16th.

Media coverage will be key in the success of the Hiring Extravaganza and attracting qualified candidates. Spread the word throughout your communication channels by utilizing:

  • Social Media (your Facebook and/or Instagram page)
  • Your website
  • Business partners and contacts via email
  • Customers – walk in or virtual

For questions or more information, please contact Kari Rauh at the Greater Peoria EDC. Her email is
