Top African American Tech Association Creates Job and Networking Opportunities During 34th Annual Technology Conference. BDPA, the largest non-profit organization of African American technology professionals, will be hosting a two-day technology career fair on Friday, August 3 from 12 pm to 6 pm and continuing on August 4 from 10 am to 3 pm at the Baltimore Convention Center. The fair will afford science, technology, engineering and math professionals the opportunity to speak with recruiting representatives from a host of technology companies, consulting firms and government agencies. The fair is hosted in affiliation with the 34th Annual National BDPA Technology Conference.

With the U.S. unemployment rate looming at a staggering 8.2 percent, BDPA has centered the 2012 conference towards "Transforming the IT Professional." Attendees to the conference and career fair will experience a dynamic line up of workshops, seminars and expositions that will educate and inspire. The organization plans to host the national conference in the DC metro area for the next two years as well as to establish itself as a local resource for stimulating the economy, employer search efforts and unemployed.
"The career fair will enable the Beltway and conference attendees to visit with numerous public, private and government companies and agencies regarding career opportunities," says National BDPA vice president of Strategy & Planning, Pamela Sexton. "Since admission to the career fair is complimentary, NBDPA is able to give back to the community in terms of employment opportunities and further promote our brand through this effort."
