Resource Center Dallas and the Out & Equal DFW Regional Affiliate will host the 2012 LGBT Job Expo from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on  Wednesday, Sept. 26. This year’s event — the seventh annual Expo — will be at the Hughes-Trigg Students Center of Southern Methodist University, 3140 Dyer St. Free parking for EXPO attendees will be available along Bishop Boulevard. Free parking will NOT be available along Bishop Boulevard this year, but a limited number of parking vouchers will be available for those who park in the parking garage. The event is hosted by the Office of Diversity at SMU’s Cox School of Business.

LGBT jobseekers will be able to meet with dozens of employers from a variety of fields. Whether people are looking for a better job, re-entering the workforce or just starting their career, the LGBT Job Expo provides an opportunity to meet with employers looking to hire.

“Everybody knows the economy continues to be challenging, which makes it critically important that businesses hire the best possible candidates regardless of the employees’ sexual orientation or gender identity. Even if an employer is not hiring immediately, they have the opportunity to collect jobseekers’ resumes for future hiring,” said RCD’s Johnny Humphrey, organizer of the LGBT Job Expo.

Dallas Voice is the official media sponsor of the 2012 LGBT Job Expo. For more information on the Job Expo, go to, or call 214-528-0144.
