The National Society for Hispanic Professionals' diversity job fair - a free event for jobseekers - returns to the Trinity Center at Trinity College on Thursday, August 21, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It was very satisfying to know that bilingual professionals are finally rewarded with this great opportunity for advancement.

The National Society for Hispanic Professionals (NSHP), in conjunction with diversity job board LatPro.com, will hold its second diversity career fair in Washington, D.C. on August 21, 2008. This unique career event, designed specifically for bilingual, Hispanic and other diverse candidates, provides an exceptional opportunity for jobseekers to meet area employers interested in their language and cultural skills.

As an international center of politics, commerce and culture, the District of Columbia is home to the best and brightest multicultural professionals in the nation, making it an ideal recruiting location for hiring companies. Corporate exhibitors will be able to screen hundreds of qualified multilingual and multicultural candidates in a single location, making this event an invaluable source of professional diversity candidates.

"The job fair we held in Washington, D.C. last year was one of our most successful career events, with more than 500 jobseekers and over 60 employers attending," said Ricardo Villalba, Events Manager for NSHP. "We are looking forward to returning to the nation's capital to serve the needs of diverse jobseekers, including the nearly 50,000 area residents who identify themselves as Hispanic or Latino."

Confirmed employers attending the Washington, D.C. diversity job fair include:
American Institutes for Research, Bank of America, Bridgestone-Firestone, CNA, Cox Communications, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Inova Health Care System, National Public Radio (NPR), the National Science Foundation, USAID and Wachovia.
