Rauner Solicits Job Applications on New Website

Illinois' governor-elect also solicits donations of $25 and above.



    Illinois Gov.-Elect Bruce Rauner has set up a website to collect resumes from applicants interested in joining his administration.

    The site, makeillinoisgreat.com, has posted a form asking prospective hires to upload resumes and fill out standard employment questions.

    It also solicits transparency on a number of negative issues—like bad credit, child support default, a past criminal conviction–that would ostensibly weed out potential headaches in the vetting process.

    The site, launched on Tuesday, also crowd-sources ideas on how to "change Illinois," with responses emailed off to various agencies, and asks for donations of $25 and above.
