The March edition of the 2007 Pittsburgh Diversity Employment Expo came to a close yesterday with over 800 jobseekers taking advantage of the opportunity to speak with employers face to face. We had about 300 of the attendees fill out anonymous surveys as to their race, age and occupation, and what types of employment they were seeking. We’ll share this information when it is compiled. We had most companies expressing how pleased they were overall by the qualifications of candidates. We saw Verizon Wireless and some other companies in attendance doing some interviews on the spot and dozens of job seekers have been scheduled for follow up interviews or online application processes. If you are a jobseeker and missed this opportunity please see the list of companies in attendance posted last Friday and seek them out. Many of them also have opportunities advertised in the weekly Employment Guide and/or online at http://pittsburgh.employmentguide.com. We will hold two more large Diversity events in July and early October so keep watching for details.
