TEA of Utah to host biannual job fair in September

Transgender Education Advocates (TEA) of Utah has announced that their biannual LGBTQ Job Fair will take place at the Salt Lake County Government Complex, North Building Atrium (2100 S. State Street in Salt Lake City), Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014.

The only LGBTQ-focused job fair in Utah, the “Paint Your Career” fair’s mission is to bring together the most inclusive and diverse employers in the state to help LGBTQ individuals and allies find new careers.  The job fair is open to the public, says TEA Executive Director Connie Anast-Inman, “Many allies in our community prefer to work for companies who share their values of inclusion and diversity.”

Following last spring’s job fair, which boasted 12 employers, participant employers requested that fairs be held twice per year.  Anast-Inman is hoping for double the employer participation this year.  They are also bringing in a resume specialist to help job seekers fine-tune their resumes, in hope of increasing hiring success.

TEA of Utah is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the education of businesses, public agencies and communities regarding transgender issues as well as providing support and advocacy for the transgender community in Utah.
