“Drivers are in demand and training is readily available at Olive-Harvey College,” said Adolfo Hernandez, Director of the Mayor’s Office of New Americans.  “There are many communities that may not be aware of how to become a taxi driver and we want to bridge this gap and bring awareness to communities throughout Chicago by hosting this event.”

Dr. Craig T. Follins, President of Olive-Harvey College, says taxi driving is one of many in-demand careers within the transportation sector. 

“Transportation, distribution and logistics is a growth industry in our region and offers a career pathway with numerous job opportunities, including taxi driving,” Follins said. “This recruitment event is part of our College to Careers strategy to partner with industries to ensure that we prepare individuals to become job-ready and it is one of many opportunities available in transportation at Olive-Harvey.” 

Bill Bundy, a nine-year veteran in the taxi industry, will share his experiences at the event. 

“If you treat this as a profession and put in the effort, you can make a lot of money,” Bundy said. “The flexibility of driving a cab allowed me to support a family of 12 while earning a bachelor’s degree in business. Now, I own a cab and have a solid client base that depends on me when they need a ride."

The event is open to the public. Free parking is available. For more information, call 773.291.6490 or go online to www.ccc.edu. ​
