The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is hosting a career job fair with the Montgomery County and the City of Dayton tonight at the Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy at 1923 W. Third St, as told by DaytonDaily.
The NAACP is a known African American civil rights organization in the United States. The NAACP was formed "to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination." Its current activities include youth education and scholarship opportunities.
Now, the NAACP is looking into the employment sector of Dayton. The organization has coordinated with 23 employers who are looking to hire workers for entry level positions and management positions as well. The industries open for hiring are towards the health care sectors, logistics, manufacturing and customer service industries.
If you are unemployed or interested to start a new career, the career job fair is a good chance for everyone to meet face-to-face with companies that are hiring and are looking for experienced candidates. Applicants are encouraged to apply on-site with resumes on hand. Resumes will be reviewed and one-on-one interviews will be conducted straight away.
