Bilingual Latino Career Company to spearhead the Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Employment Initiative to assist Puerto Ricans with employment opportunities

Latcareers.com the largest Bilingual & Diversity Recruitment website in the US has spearheaded the Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Employment Initiative.  LATCareers.com is working with various employer organizations to host strategic career fairs in New York (October 19, 2017), Washington DC (October 26, 2017), Boston (November 2, 2017) and Philadelphia (November 9, 2017) be part of the Puerto Rico relief effort.  These free career fairs for displaced Puerto Ricans residing in these cities are to bring together both employers who are providing job opportunities to displaced Puerto Ricans that have traveled to live with relatives mostly along the Mid Atlantic and Northeast where there are large Puerto Rican Communities.  They number in the tens of thousands and the numbers are growing.

The largest population of Puerto Ricans outside of Puerto Rico is the area between Boston and Washington DC.  This area is home to more than 1.5 Million Puerto Ricans according to the US Census. “Being that we are the most established Latino, Bilingual and Diversity Job Board in the US we are compelled to lead this effort” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO of Latcareers.com “This is our 14th year of having these Bilingual and Diversity Career Fairs and we understand the importance of our organization leading the effort to find permanent employment for the tens of thousands of these displaced professionals and citizens who have now come to the mainland” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO of Latcareers.com  “Our team has been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to find career opportunities for these displaced professionals that want to re-establish themselves on the mainland given the devastation in Puerto Rico.  Latcareers.com has conducted a poll of over 2500 Puerto Rican career seekers that have come to the mainland since the hurricane and more than 73% of these Puerto Ricans plan to stay and not return to Puerto Rico.”  Ms. Acosta states, “This is a storm of historical precedence and proportions not only in the devastation, but also in the opportunity.  Employers now have the opportunity to reach highly educated Puerto Ricans that in the past would not have taken their talent to the mainland, but now are forced to as the Puerto Rican economy has come to a standstill”.  Ms. Acosta added, “We will continue these efforts to support these displaced workers for the remainder of this year and into the 1st Quarter of 2018 and invite all displaced workers to visit our website and upload their resume and plan to attend these events to assist them in their job search”.  This effort by Latcareers.com follows other efforts by other prominent Latino organizations and celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Mark Anthony and Alex Rodriguez to raise awareness as well as support Puerto Ricans as they try to put their lives back together.

Latcareers.com to host 14th Annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair in Denver October 12, 2017

Amazon and many employers to recruit Bilingual and Diverse job seekers at annual career fair in Denver

The 14th annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair is set to take place in Denver, Colorado on October 12, 2017.  The event is hosted by leading bilingual and diversity job board and career fair company, Latcareers.com.  The annual niche career fair attracts hundreds of local career seekers and top employers from the business and Industry, government, Education and the non-profit sector.

Denver has one of the lowest jobless rates in the country at 2.4 percent vs. 4.3 percent nationally as updated by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment in June 2017.   With such a low unemployment rate, employers in all industries are struggling to reach career seekers and fill their open career opportunities.   One of the hardest labor pools to tap is Bilingual job seekers in the Denver area.  Bilingual career seekers are sought after and employers are providing strong career benefit packages to lure this hard to recruit talent.   Some employers are responding by increasing pay and offering sign on bonuses in order to recruit bilingual talent.

The small available labor pool in Denver reflects the potential strength of the local economy and also mirrors the challenges that employers are experiencing nationwide to recruit Bilingual career seekers.   With such a high demand for this niche talent pool, employers including Amazon, Liberty Mutual, Prudential, Walgreens and many others are partnering with Latcareers.com to recruit at our bilingual and diversity career fairs in Denver and nationwide.  “We strategically partner with our clients to execute their diversity employment strategies and to provide them a solution in recruiting Bilingual career seekers” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO Latcareers.com

Employers including Amazon, Walgreens, Federal Reserve, SR Originals, Aflac, Devry, Liberty Mutual, Verizon Wireless, Macy’s and many others will be recruiting at this event.  Career seekers are encouraged to register to attend the career fair and to dress for interviews and bring resumes with them to the event.   The career fair is free to all job seekers.  All job seekers are invited to attend.

To register career seekers must visit www.latcareers.com and upload their resume.
