If this week's job fair is any indication, the federal Bureau of Prisons will have no trouble finding employees for its new prison in Thomson, Illinois. Village president, Vicky Trager, says about 12-hundred people showed up for the three-day fair at the prison in Carroll County. And she's heard from bureau officials, including the warden, they're very pleased with the turnout.
Trager says anyone who would like to apply for a job can do so online at usajobs.gov. Then search for either Thomson Illinois or by its zip code ( 61285 ). Then click on "US citizens."
