Hispanic National Bar Association Career Fair

The Hispanic National Bar Association (“HNBA”) will host its 2010 Annual Convention in Minneapolis, MN from September 8-11, 2010.  As part of the Convention, the HNBA will once again host the largest Latino career fair in the country, providing law students with an opportunity to meet, interview and network with private, government and public interest employers from across the country. The Career Fair will be on Friday, September 10, 2010, at the Hilton Minneapolis.  

The early bird registration fee is $175 and the early bird registration deadline is Saturday, July 31, 2010. The regular registration fee is $200 and the deadline is August 6, 2010. Students can attend the entire Convention or just the Career Fair; registration for the Career Fair gives law students access to all Convention activities.

Career Fair Logistics: Employers will have the opportunity to preselect 70% of interviewees and 30% will be assigned by the HNBA to make the interview experience available to all job seekers that register for the Career Fair. Every year, certain employers choose to collect materials through a resume collect, rather than participating in the interview program itself. Please continue to visit the HNBA website for more information as it becomes available.
