LatPro Hosts Job Fair for Bilingual Professionals in Washington DC
The 2012 National Diversity Job Fair Series, sponsored by LatPro and the National Society for Hispanic Professionals, will visit Trinity College in Washington DC on May 17 as the fourth stop on the nationwide career fair tour.
Washington DC – April 24, 2012 – Diversity job board LatPro (www.LatPro.com), in partnership with the National Society for Hispanic Professionals (www.NSHP.org), will be in Washington DC with their multicultural career fair on May 17. This event will take place at the Trinity Center at Trinity College from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The job fair provides a unique opportunity for diversity-conscious employers to meet with professional candidates who have developed language and multicultural skills. The April fair is the fourth of nine diversity career events which will be held across the United States for Hispanic and bilingual professionals for the 2012 season.
This will be the fifth annual LatPro job fair held in the DC area.
“Washington DC is one of our favorite locations to hold the job fair. In fact, we have such a positive response from both employers and job seekers that we visit DC twice every year, unlike any other stop on our diversity job fair tour,” said NSHP event manager, Ricardo Villalba. “DC has the perfect balance of exceptional multilingual job seekers and enthusiastic employers. Their attendance makes the event a success year after year as the talent just keeps growing.”
Jobseekers attending the career event will have the opportunity to network with fellow Hispanic professionals and local chapters of Latino organizations, in addition to meeting representatives from employers such as Target, Hair Club, MedAssurant and PPG Industries, plus many more.
