“We’re very excited to participate in this event,” said Pam Kauten, president of PEAK Connections, Inc., Florida CareerLINK’s parent company. “There is so much opportunity in the marketplace right now, and our employers are telling us that diversity and bilingual Spanish skills are very important for them today. This trend bodes especially well for Hispanic job seekers, a segment of the market that we’ve been serving very successfully since the launch of the Hispanic Voice section of Florida CareerLINK’s web site in 2003.”

Florida CareerLINK’s Hispanic Voice features Spanish language web pages featuring jobs from top local employers, along with diversity initiative resources and local Spanish-language media.

Local employers including WCI Communities, Walt Disney World, University Community Hospital, and HSBC Bank are among the dozens of companies that will host booths and visit with candidates at the Job Fair’s Village Career Center.

Florida CareerLINK is supporting the Hispanic Business Expo and Job Fair with six billboards on major highways throughout Tampa Bay, and a radio ad campaign with WYUU... La Nueva 92.5, a Spanish-language station.

The Hispanic Business Expo and Job Fair, which is hosted by the Tampa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, will kick off with a “Salsa & Success” party on Wednesday, January 25 from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM and continue on Thursday, January 26 with a full day of seminars, workshops, and networking events.
