Career Expo

Columbus, OH (BlackNews.com) — HBCU Connect, the largest organization and website targeting alumni and students of Historically Black Colleges and Universities has recently partnered with Spelman College to produce “HIRE SPELMAN” annual career expo, October 24th, 2013 at Spelman College, targeting hundreds of talented Spelman alumnae and students.

Since 2001, HBCU Connect has powered the first and largest job board on the Internet targeting professional African Americans using their niche audience of more than 2.3 million HBCU alumni & student members. HBCU Connect works with more than 9,000 hiring organizations and leverages these key employer relationships to the thousands of job seekers who regularly frequent the site.

With recruiting resources growing smaller for many organizations, staffing managers are being forced to make critical decisions around the allocation of these resources, often affecting their organization’s diversity outreach. Via online, event and print HBCU Connect provides a one-stop-shop targeting HBCU talent.

“HBCU Connect is interested in partnering with progressive HBCUs, African-American institutions and organizations who are seeking to grow their attendance, membership, sponsor relations and fully leverage the professional communities they are in touch with the thousands of job opportunities our employers share with our audiences,” shares HBCU Connect’s President, Daniel Moss. “Through partnerships like this, HBCU Connect has been able to grow its range of recruitment services beyond job postings, resume sourcing, banner ads and email blasts, candidate screening and sourcing but also career fairs and boutique professional networking events.”
