LatPro’s Hispanic & Bilingual Career Fair Comes to Washington, DC

Latpro’s Nationwide Diversity Job Fair Series, in conjunction with the National Society for Hispanic Professionals, visits the Dallas Convention Center on October 22

DALLAS, TX – September 23, 2009 -- Professional job candidates with language and multicultural skills can meet with companies seeking diverse employees at a diversity hiring fair to be held at the Dallas Convention Center on Thursday, October 22, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The event will be held by diversity job board, in conjunction with The National Society for Hispanic Professionals (, as part of LatPro’s diversity job fair series for multicultural jobseekers.

With more than 43 percent of Dallas’s residents identifying themselves as Hispanic or Latino (according to the 2006 U.S. Census Bureau), Dallas is a prime location for the recruitment of diverse professionals, particularly those with Spanish-language abilities. Many businesses are focused on recruiting bilingual employees to take advantage of global market opportunities, and also to serve the U.S. market, which is becoming increasingly infused with Spanish language and culture. The NSHP job fair makes it easy for these companies to screen hundreds of bilingual and multicultural professional candidates in an efficient recruiting format.

Jobseekers attending the 2009 Dallas Diversity Career Fair will have the opportunity to network with fellow Hispanic professionals and local chapters of Latino organizations, in addition to meeting representatives from prestigious employers including Capital One, Cook Children’s Healthcare, Aflac, Boy Scouts of America and the US Department of State.

The final event of the series will take place November 3 in Phoenix, AZ.
