Dallas Hosts Diversity Job Fair for Hispanic and Bilingual Professionals

NSHP’s Nationwide Diversity Job Fair Series, sponsored by diversity job board LatPro.com, visits the Dallas Convention Center on October 23rd from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – September 23, 2008 -- The National Society for Hispanic Professionals (www.NSHP.org), in conjunction with diversity job board www.LatPro.com, will be returning to Dallas, TX with its diversity job fair series for multicultural jobseekers. Professional candidates with language and multicultural skills and companies seeking diverse employees will connect at NSHP’s diversity hiring event being held at the Dallas Convention Center on Thursday October 23, 2008 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

With more than 43 percent of Dallas’s residents identifying themselves as Hispanic or Latino (source: 2006 U.S. Census Bureau), Dallas is a prime location for the recruitment of diverse professionals, particularly those with Spanish-language abilities. More and more 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.

“We are thrilled to be returning to Dallas after the success of our last career event in 2007. We expect to have more than 40 companies and hundreds of jobseekers at the Dallas job fair,” said Ricardo Villalba, Events Manager for NSHP. “The decision to come back to Dallas was an easy one based on the enormous positive response we received last year. Employers and jobseekers alike were impressed with the opportunities provided through the event.”

Jobseekers attending the 2008 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 Aramark, AT&T, Prudential, Aflac, and Pfizer.
