3,000 jobs available at ‘Diverse Workforce Job Fair’

When you think diversity at the office, what comes to mind? It should be more than gender or skin color. Today’s workplaces are filled with people from different generations, religions and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Companies that value employee differences will be on hand at the ‘Celebrating a Diverse Workforce Job Fair’ on Monday, November 3, at the Phoenix Airport Marriott at 1101 N. 44th Street in Phoenix.  Consider these Arizona stats:

• We have higher percentage of people over 65 compared to the national average (15.4% to 14.1%)

• Our Hispanic (30.3% to 17.1%) and Native American (5.3% to 1.2%) populations are higher than the national average

•  We have a higher percentage of people who speak languages other than English at home (27% to 20%)

• We have a higher percentage of foreign born (13.6% to 12.9%)

• We have a higher percentage of people living below the poverty line (17.2% to 14.9%)

The November 3 job fair will also feature a variety of seasonal positions, including full and part-time jobs with companies like:

• Boeing

• PayPal

• State Farm
