Urban League Career Fair/Expo

In its ongoing effort to promote diversity and inclusion in employment, The Urban League of San Diego County through its employer volunteer network the Career Fair Committee is presenting the 19th Annual Barbara E. Webb Diversity Works! Career Fair/Expo. It will be held Thursday, April 24, 2008, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at San Diego’s Golden Hall Concourse at 202 “C” Street.

The theme of this year’s career fair is: “Tapping into San Diego’s Diverse Resources.” Named for the career fair’s late founder, the annual event is a celebration of the Urban League, the Career Fair Committee and our sponsor’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The career fair’s format has been designed to ensure that both employers and jobseekers gain the exposure, tools and benefits they desire from their participation. More than 5,000 jobseekers are expected to attend the career fair, offering employers a great opportunity to tap into a new talent pool. Job seekers also will have the opportunity to take advantage of local resources to help prepare them for job interviews. They may also take part in workshops focusing on practices that support the retention and advancement of diverse employees.

This year’s career fair features/benefits:

· Pre-Career Fair workshops at one-stop career centers

· Employer’s Diversity Networking Luncheon featuring keynote speaker: Major League Baseball legend - Dave Winfield
