Annual Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs (DED) – Thirty will be held in most major cities throughout America in 2014. Traditionally the Mayor, Governor or Local Board of County Supervisors proclaim the day by Proclamation or Resolution. The primary focus of the DED Career Fair is to provide an opportunity for nationally recognized and Top Local employers to meet and interview qualified candidates from the multicultural and diverse communities of their city. The average candidate attendance ranges between 900-1500. The median candidate has 3-5 years work experience and a college degree. Many are recent veterans with state of the art career related skills and are bilingual. The DED Career Fairs start at 11AM and concluded at 3PM.
The Co-host of the DED Career Fairs is the Diversity Recruiter’s Network.org that on the morning of the career fairs hosts a Diversity Roundtable exclusively for the employers, professional and community based organizations, Diversity Partners, and the Media. It includes a Continental Breakfast a Diversity Spirit Achievement Awards Ceremony and Key Learning Speakers. Recent Key Learning Speakers have included Pacific Gas & Electric’s Chief Diversity Officer, Coca-Cola Refreshments Director of Talent Acquisition, Cisco System’s Chief Inclusion and Collaboration Strategist, Kaiser Permanente’s Director of Workforce Planning and Development, the OFCCP and EEOC.

Among them are, local SHRM Associations, NCHRA, SAHRA, NBMBA,SWE, NSHMBA, NAAAP, WMBA, NAACP, UL, ALPFA, BDPA, and many more. A high percentage of these organizations members attended and support our recruitment events. Every DED Career Fair and co-locate Industry & Candidate Specific Pavilion are support by our huge recruitment advertisement campaign that includes: Television, Radio, Internet Postings, Targeted Invitiations to Professional Affinity Groups, Press Releases, Media Interviews, Diversity Partners Collateral Promos, National and local Magazines, Newspapers and Business Journals and more. Plus we also heavily promote our recruitment career fairs and events by using the Media Outlets unique to the multicultural and diverse communities.
Many of our Annual Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs include one or more Industry & Candidate Specific Pavilions co-located within the career fair venue. These featured Pavilons add additional and enhanced focus upon multicultural and diverse candidates within a specific industry or candidate qualification. This unique recruitment event platform creates a greater synergy due to the local grouping of industry specific employers. Thus, the most qualified candidates are now greatly attracted and basically self- compelled to justify the opportunity to interview with a relevant industry specific grouping of employers. Many of our Pavilions are city and industry specific. The cities with the greatest concentration of industry professionals typically yield the highest recruitment rate. For example we have a High Tech and Diversity Pavilion co-located within our Silicon Valley (Santa Clara/San Jose, CA) Diversity Employment Day Career Fair. Likewise, we co-locate our Government Top Secret/ Security Clearance and Diversity Pavilion within our Metro Washington, DC DED Career Fair for the greatest potential yield of qualified candidates.
