Diversity Career & Job Fair Announces Eight Dates for 06 and 07

SAN BERNARDINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 1, 2006 -- The Inland Empire Diversity Career & Job Fair announces eight dates for 2006 and 2007. The first is slated for August 2 in Victorville and on August 9 in Indio. Other Diversity Job Fairs are set for September 6 in San Bernardino and, October 4, in Riverside.

The Diversity Job fairs will hold two events each in San Bernardino, Riverside, Victorville, and Indio. Recruiting events in Temecula and Corona are planned for the spring and fall of 2007.

"Our goal is to put together those who want to work locally and with the great local companies who want a diverse local workforce. Too often, employers assume minorities won't fit in or won't be interested in their companies. Nothing could be further from the truth," said Lionel Dew, president of the Victorville African American Chamber of Commerce.

The employers searching for a diverse local workforce include: San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Wells Fargo, LensCrafters, Ernie Ball, CalTrans, Phoenix University, College of Automotive Management, Primerica Financial Services, San Bernardino County Sheriff, 909Models.com, Allied Barton Security, Universal Nursing Systems, Victory Valley Union High School District, Temps Plus Inc., San Joaquin Valley College, Labor Finders, Owens Corning Home Experts, Jiffy Lube, Tuesday Morning, The Los Angeles County Sheriffs, and others. Not every employer will attend every event.

What's it all mean? To organizers it's simple: we are happy to help People of all ages, races, and backgrounds find the local job they want.

According to Sherrice Mitchell, executive director for the Inland Empire Chamber of Commerce, the unemployment rate for Blacks and Hispanics is two times greater than for whites, and the Diversity Job Fairs can help remedy that."

Sponsors include the Inland Empire and Palm Springs African American Chambers of Commerce, The National American Unity Association, 909Models.com, Hispanic Connect, publications including Black Voice News, Precinct Reporter, WestSide Story and El Chicano plus Dameron Communications.
