WASHINGTON, DC – August 25, 2009 – Diversity job board LatPro (, in conjunction with The National Society for Hispanic Professionals (, will once again bring its job fair series to Washington, DC, connecting multicultural jobseekers with companies seeking bilingual and bicultural professional candidates.
