About Us

We are part of the Illinois Department of Employment Security; visit www.ides.illinois.gov for other useful career and labor market information resources. We have offered the Illinois Career Information System (CIS) since 1977.

Illinois CIS is part of the intoCareers consortium. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Employment & Training Administration we develop local, state and national labor market information for businesses, educators, government agencies, researchers, and students. We are also home to the Illinois Career Resource Network which provides career development tools for everyone from elementary school students to adult job seekers and second career seniors. Our goal is to produce the most up-to-date, reliable information to help make important life decisions. And, best of all, it is available at no charge on the Internet 24/7.
