The reports about Minnesota’s racial employment and economic disparities (www.mncompass.org/disparities/overview) have likely troubled you. One important question student advisers, career coaches, and workforce professionals are addressing is: How do we encourage candidates in this antagonistic job market?
One response to this multifaceted issue is to connect skilled job seekers with Minnesota employers who value diversity in their workplace. College students, job seekers from underrepresented populations and veterans will receive free career coaching, mock interviews, resumes review and other job search help at the Career Services Center March 29-30, 2016 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Fifty health care, financial, information technology and other employers are coming March 30 specifically to recruit and interview diverse candidates. The Career Services Center and Career Fair are free and open to the public.
The Career Services Center is a unique opportunity for job seekers and career changers to receive free one-on-one career coaching. Volunteer career experts experienced in helping diverse candidates optimize their job searches will be on site to provide resume reviews, interview practice, veteran’s career transition, and other job search resources.
