More Info

The People Of Color Career Fair returns for its third semi-annual event connecting Minnesota’s top employers with candidates of color, Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Since launching in October 2016, the People Of Color Career Fair has attracted thousands of attendees, providing an excellent resource for corporate, private and government employers seeking to step up diversity recruitment efforts. Presented by Midco, State of Minnesota and Thrivent Financial, the People Of Color Career Fair not only brings top employers together with talented candidates to help reduce unemployment and underemployment rates among people of color in the region, but also works to combat the increasingly urgent worker shortfall created by a surge of retiring baby boomers.

Participating employers include Midco, State of Minnesota, Thrivent Financial, U.S. Bank, Comcast, Metro Transit, Target, Allianz Life Insurance of North America, Bremer Bank, Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota, General Mills, Parsons Electric, Cargill, Ordway, Hennepin County, City of Minneapolis, Securian, RBC, City of Minneapolis, Andersen Corporation, and more to come. A few slots are still available for employers interested in exhibiting -- they can register to participate at POCCareerFair.com. The Fall 2017 People Of Color Career Fair takes place Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 10am-3pm in Room 200 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, located at 1301 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis,
MN 55403. Attendance for candidates is FREE. Advance registration is recommended, however all walk-ins are welcome. Those who register and submit their resumes in advance will receive a free professional headshot an hour before the event begins. Attendees can also download a free Metro Transit bus or train ride to and from the event.
