Celebrating 17 years of diversity
In May, AL DÍA News will present its 17th Annual Diversity Career Fair.
The Annual Diversity Career Fair, organized by AL DÍA News, is a traditional recruiting event that was created to connect well-qualified professionals from all over our diverse region with the employers seeking them.

The 17th Annual Diversity Career Fair will feature talent hunters from government, business/finance, education, retail, healthcare, and the energy sector. Jobseekers attending this year’s career fair will not only have the opportunity to interact with recruiters, but also be able to attend panel discussions composed of senior leaders from the industry sectors being represented at the fair.
Merrill Lynch, the U.S. Army, the Philadelphia Airport, Marriott Family of Hotels, SEPTA and the Philadelphia Phillies are some of the recruiters that will be present at the upcoming edition of the Diversity Career Fair.
