Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed Friday as Diversity Employment Day in Minnesota. It coincides with a Diversity Employment Day Career Fair in downtown Minneapolis.
“Diversity today, the scope is really wide, especially how employers define it,” said Neal Morrison, who organizes the event with City Career Fair. “First of all, it’s not only multi-cultural candidates, it happens to include women, veterans, LGBT, mature workers, and people with disabilities.”
More than 20 employers will be available to meet with job seekers, who are encouraged to show up in business attire, with resumes ready.
“It’s a very positive and uplifting experience,” Morrison said. “These employers are there to empower you, they are anxious to find the right candidates to be there.”
Candidates can also submit resumes to the participating employers online, both before and after the Career Fair by e-mailing to email@example.com.
The free Diversity Employment Day Career Fair runs from 11am to 3pm on Friday, July 10, at the Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown (1500 Washington Avenue South).
