LatPro’s Diversity Job Fair Series comes to DC’s Trinity Center at Trinity College on May 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – April 20, 2009 – Diversity job board LatPro (www.LatPro.com
), in conjunction with The National Society for Hispanic Professionals (www.NSHP.org
), will once again bring its job fair series to Washington, DC, connecting multicultural jobseekers with companies seeking bilingual and bicultural professional candidates.
“The 2008 Washington, DC job fair was one of our most popular events last year, attracting more than 900 jobseekers and 60 top organizations,” said Ricardo Villalba, Events Manager for NSHP. “Based on that overwhelming interest, Washington, DC topped our list of host cities for the 2009 Career Fair Series.”
Last year, response from employers and jobseekers was so positive that LatPro documented testimonials in a video filmed at the DC event designed to prepare future participants for the exciting day that they can expect at a LatPro/NSHP career fair.
