At the third Diversity Career Fair September 16, 2009, Diversity Committee members assisted fellow diversity candidates in achieving their next job. CareerBuilder and the Indianapolis Star hosted the event at the Indiana Convention Center.

“HR professionals offering on-the-spot resume review to job seekers is a huge benefit, especially because it’s free,” said Erin Brothers, Director of Diversity for IndySHRM. “Candidates are surprised to hear what we do, that we are a resource for them and that we are truly there to help them out during their transition,” Brothers said. “And (almost) all of them are happy to have feedback, especially knowing it is coming from an HR professional who sees hundreds of resumes on a daily basis.

Over thirty job seekers came to the IndySHRM booth, inquiring about our organization, diversity committee and the free resume service we were providing. Our committee has reviewed over 100 resumes in the three Diversity Career Fairs offered by CareerBuilder and the Indianapolis Star this year.
