The Peoria County Regional Office of Education and Workforce Network held a career transition fair today.

Multiple organizations offered information for those having trouble getting back to work or even going back to school.

Gloria Demartelaere, a dislocated school teacher expressed concern saying, "I don't know what direction I'm going to go into. I love teaching. I've always thought that's where I would be, but I've had second thoughts lately. Maybe I need to look into retraining or getting into something else."
