NSHMBA Cincinnati  

Are you a professional looking for a new career, or a student looking for a great position following graduation or a summer internship?

An upcoming NSHMBA event, “Connecting Firms with Hispanic Talent”, sponsored by Duke Energy, and hosted by Xavier University,  will give you an opportunity on Saturday, April 5th, from 11 AM - 4 PM to meet with representatives from local companies across the Greater Cincinnati area.  The agenda includes lunch with company representatives, a brief company profile by each attending company, and finally, while company representatives stay at their respective tables, candidates rotate on scheduled timing between all the tables.  You’ll have an opportunity to meet all the company representatives.  This format provides a much more personal approach than a standard career fair.  Plan to arrive on time and stay until the end when we’ll raffle off some great prizes.

Last year we had companies such as Procter & Gamble, Fifth Third, Deloitte, Cintas, Kroger, and American Family Insurance, participating in the event.

Dress code is Business!  Please bring 20 copies of your resume. Free Lunch will be provided.

To help you prepare for this important event, NSHMBA will host two free workshop sessions, sponsored by Fifth Third Bank, where experienced recruiters will provide coaching on resume writing/interviewing skills.  The workshops will be held at the Fifth Third Center on:

* Thursday, March 20 (Resume Clinic)
* Thursday, March 27th (Mock Interview)

All these events are targeted toward NSHMBA Members, Experienced Candidates, Undergraduates and Graduate Students in Business or Engineering.

The events are FREE to attend, but since space is limited, you have to register at:

This Friday, March 14th, a delegation from LULAC Cincinnati (League of United Latin American Citizens), incl. its President, Jason Riveiro, and Vice President, Michael Beck, together with Alfonso Cornejo, President of the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, Father Bill Jansen from the Hispanic Catholic Ministry, and representatives of Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau: Venus Kent and Jason Dunn, presented to LULAC National Board application for hosting the 2011 LULAC National Conference in Cincinnati.

Cincinnati is not a stranger to Hispanic/Latino National Conferences. In 2006 we hosted the National Conference of NSHMBA (National Society of Hispanic MBAs). "Our 2006 NSHMBA National Conference in Cincinnati was a huge success, thanks to the support from the city officials, our corporate and university partners, as well as the hospitality of its residents and business owners!  I highly recommend Cincinnati to any organization considering it as a location for a large successful convention! “ said Lourdes M. Hassler, CEO National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA), in support of our application for LULAC Conference.

It’s worth to notice that in 2010 we’ll be hosting another Hispanic Organization - the National Conference of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers). In all cases the City of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, and P&G were the main supporters of bringing those conferences to our city. They worked very hard as a team, successfully competing against other cities, for example, Indianapolis, to bring them to Cincinnati.

The presentation on Friday was very successful (many people said that it was the best from all the cities presenting) and the LULAC's National Board voted to have Cincinnati on the short list. The next step will be to win the general vote at the 2008 National Conference in Washington, DC.  

We definitely hope that we’ll be successful in securing the 2011 LULAC conference, as it will have a huge positive economic impact on our city, and it will help to create a positive image of the Cincinnati Latino Community. To join LULAC visit:
