“Jobseekers have to understand that technology cannot replace face to face meetings with employers who have real jobs. We are dedicated to making sure all of our employers have W-2 jobs and real jobs. The Florida Blue, Florida Classic Career Expo & Diversity Job Fair is fantastic event that attracts companies who are in the pursuit of great diversified candidates.” Lear added.
Planned around the weekend of the Florida Classic football match-up between Bethune-Cookman University and Florida A&M University, organizers of the November 22nd event are also donating sixty percent of the proceeds from booth revenue to a scholarship fund that is split between the two schools. Last year over $23,000 was raised.
