CHICAGO: The third strike and it may get over in Baseball game but it is a different ballgame for Indo American Community Services (IACS), a Chicago based no profit body that has expanded its base over the past three years and is set for further expansion.
IACS, already successful in hosting Asian Women’s conference, job fairs and professional networking meets, has now announced holding its third annual job fair at Hotel Hilton in Chicago downtown on Wednesday October 17. It will have larger participation from corporations and potential employers.
Talking to Indian media here, Srinivas Katragadda, president IACS, said that the participation in IDS held job fairs has been consistently rising and expectations are there would be 30 plus ranking companies not only from Chicago but from other parts of the country participating in this year’s event. The participation from job seekers too is expected to cross the 1000 mark from about 700 registered last year, he said.
Some of the participating companies are big names in the corporate world like IBM, Infosys, Abbot Labs, ITW, WW Grainger, New York Life Insurance, Mass Mutual Financial, HCL Global Systems, Walgreen, Illinois Action for Children, among others. Srinivas said that many educational institutions like University of Chicago, Northwestern UIC, IIT Chicago, Roosevelt, Chicago Sate University and Loyola would be participating and “supporting our actions.”

Jagan Bukkaraju, secretary IACS, mentioned that the job fair broadly targets three areas: job opportunity discussions and interviews, employer trade show and exhibit conferences, and networking among professionals.
The job opportunity discussions will host sessions that will explore soft-skills for careers success, and the topics covered would be HR Strategies, resume preparations, career counseling, benefits management, etc.
The objective of net working session will be to allow participants to connect at a deeper level, beyond regular employment based discussions, he added.
Praveen Medikundam, a practicing attorney and executive team member, observed that IACS also conducts annul Leadership Networking that seeks to provide young South Asian Americans opportunities to connect and access to both public and corporate leadership. Past speakers at these conferences have been Dan Korte, president Defense Aerospace, Rolls -Royce, Terry Friel Dean of Roosevelt University Business School, Manu Bhardwaj, Sr Advisor at the US State Department and Toby Chaudhary of Strategic Communication at the White House, among others.
