EMPLOYMENT HELP: NAACP Holding Job Fair
NBC 13 ^ | July 31, 2013 | Staff Writer

Posted on 07/31/2013 5:28:31 PM PDT by kevcol

Folks looking for work in the Des Moines metro will have a chance to meet up with potential employers Wednesday.

The Des Moines NAACP is holding a job fair from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Wellmark at 1331 Grand Avenue.

Forty employers will be represented at the fair including Wellmark, Wells Fargo, Iowa DOT, Mercy, DART and many others.

Help will also be on hand for job seekers to write cover letters and resumes, to set up mock interviews and more.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Culture/Society; News/Current Events; US: Iowa
KEYWORDS: desmoines; jobs; naacp; racebaiters
No resume needed (NAACP will write it for you), no uncomfortable interviews (NAACP will coach you prior and probably sit in on the interviews to ensure there is no racial biases). Just remember not to tie one on too hard and show up before 3:00.

Could I get a job if I showed up in blackface with a hoodie?

As someone who worked as a veteran’s rep. and job skills instructor at the Des Moines and West Des Moines unemployment offices for 15 years, I’ve never heard of the NAACP chapter doing anything for anybody in all my years there. OTOH, I coordinated numerous job fairs at Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, resulting in thousands of hires, including many people of color.

Wait. This is the “Summer of Recovery” x 5, and the “economic genius” [sic] from kenya says we need to allow the mexicans in to fill jobs, so WHY does the NAACP need to hold a job fair?

The National Association for the Advancement of the Communist Party is holding a job fair?

most likely, these companies were contacted and informed that their workforce was not diverse enough. The NAACP kindly provided a job fair so that said employers would have the opportunity to bring their diversity up to par.

Since anthropologists claim humans originated in Africa, then EVERYONE who is American, is African American and should claim to be so.

Yes, the lead LVER for the Des Moines district. And a DVOR at different times. One year I was a TVOR (Transitional Veterans Outreach Representative) for homeless veterans under Title IV-C.

Sweet. My DVOP does the TVOR duties since our area is not that big. How long has it been since you were the LVER?

I used to go to Denver for training a lot, but I can’t recall any names after all these years.

She was the attractive blonde instructor. I know how memories can fade though.

If you showed me a photo I’d probably remember, but names after almost 20 years? Nope. Although I remember some of my instructors from both of my AIT’s which were much further back. Weird.

When I was in college the big accounting firms would recruit with NABA (National Association of Black Accountants) rather than the much larger Accounting Society. It was the only time I heard white women bitch about affirmative action.

Needless to say, when the school calls for donations I tell them to ask the minority students for money; I tell them I paid for those students’ tuition already in addition to mine. Until the Church opposes affirmative action with the same fervor with which they pursue environmental nonsense, they get no money either. I’m passing that same mindset along to my children as well.

If I remember right, Theresa Heinz (Kerry) claimed African American on her college applications (yeah, she needed the financial aid), because she was born in Johansburg or something like that.
