Join us for the fourth annual Northeast Ohio Transgender Job Fair
Looking for work is hard.
Finding a job when you’re a transgender worker can be even tougher.
In fact, transgender people face an unemployment rate that’s nearly double that of the wider population. That’s why MetroHealth is partnering with other local businesses to host the fourth annual Northeast Ohio Transgender Job Fair on Saturday, May 12, at 9 a.m. at MetroHealth’s main campus, 2500 MetroHealth Drive, Cleveland. The event is free and anyone can attend.
Attendees will be able to network with employers and connect with community resources and professional development opportunities. The day kicks off with a free hot breakfast at 8:00 a.m. Ohio Representative Nickie Antonio will deliver this year’s keynote address. Representative Antonio became the first openly gay member of the Ohio General Assembly when she took office in 2011.
In addition to MetroHealth, businesses like PNC, Giant Eagle, the Cleveland Metroparks, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Hyland Software and Starbucks will be on hand to meet with potential applicants. Click here for an up-to-date list of participating employers.
Ready to sign up? You can register as a participant here. And if you’re worried you’re not ready for the fair, we’re also hosting a resume clinic and job fair readiness event Tuesday, May 1 at 4:30 p.m. Come to MetroHealth’s main campus to meet with resume and interviewing experts who will get you ready to put your best foot forward at the actual job fair. PNC recruiters will also be there to share what they look for in potential candidates.
We’re looking for additional employers and community organizations interested in attending and meeting with candidates. If you want your business at the fair, click here to sign up.
