Career fair focuses on diversity

Job seekers will have the opportunity to meet with regional employers at the second annual Colorado Multicultural Career and Internship Fair Feb. 21 at the Four Points by Sheraton Denver Southeast, 6363 E. Hampden Ave. from 1–5 p.m.

The event targets women and students of color. Attendees will be able to connect with local, national and regional companies with a commitment to diversity and learn about hundreds of job and internship opportunities.  Employers will conduct on-site interviews with some applicants.

“I saw a need in the Colorado marketplace for a one-stop shop for Colorado’s diverse talent from both the employer and student side,” says Teresa Kostenbauer, the event’s founder. Kostenbauer also is the corporate relations and community engagement director at DU’s Daniels College of Business.

“This fair creates a unique and welcoming environment that caters to the multicultural student and alumni population.”

The fair’s honorary co-chairs include U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and DU Chancellor Robert Coombe.

Participating employers include the Central Intelligence Agency, City and County of Denver, Echostar Satellite, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, First Data Corporation, Kaiser Permanente, Sun Microsystems, Sundyne Corporation and Xcel Energy.

The fair is free and open to all Colorado college students and alumni. Advanced registration is requested. For more information or to register, visit the fair’s Web site or call Teresa Kostenbauer at 303-871-7483.
