DIVERSITY CAREER & JOB FAIR ANNOUNCES DATES FOR 2007

(San Bernardino, CA) The Inland Empire Diversity Career & Job Fair announces four dates in 2007. The first is slated for March 14 in Victorville at the Ambassador Hotel and Convention Center, also April 4 at the San Bernardino Airport Galaxy Center. Other Diversity Job Fairs are set for Sept. 5 in San Bernardino and, Sept. 19, in Victorville.
Recruiting events in Temecula and Corona are planned for the spring and fall of 2007.
“Our goal is to bring together those who want to work locally and with the great local companies who want a diverse workforce. Too often, employers assume minorities won’t fit in or won’t be interested in their companies. Nothing could be further from the truth,” said Lionel Dew, president of the Victorville African American Chamber of Commerce.
The employers searching for a diverse local workforce include: San Bernardino County, Riverside County, 99.9 KOLA Radio, X-103.9, 909Models.com, Universal Nursing Systems, and others. Not every employer will attend every event.
What’s it all mean? To organizers it’s simple: we are happy to help people of all ages, races, and backgrounds find the local job they want.
According to Sherrice Mitchell, executive director for the Inland Empire Chamber of Commerce, “The unemployment rate for Blacks and Hispanics is two times greater than for whites, and the Diversity Job Fairs can help remedy that.”
Sponsors include the County of San Bernardino Economic Development Agency, the San Bernardino City Employment and Training Agency, the Inland Empire and Victor Valley African American Chambers of Commerce, 99.9 KOLA Radio, X-103.9, 909Models.com, Hispanic Connect, publications including: Black Voice News, Precinct Reporter, WestSide Story and El Chicano plus Dameron Communications.
