HBCU CONNECT Surpasses Expectations of Attendees & Hiring Companies with Awesome Conference & Career Fair on June 28th-29th!

Posted By: Will Moss on July 10, 2024

A big shout out to all of the #hbcu grads, students, attendees and #partners that were a part of our 1st Annual HBCU CONNECT Conference and Career Fair celebrating 25 years of service! The event was an awesome experience and we cannot wait to make 2025 even better!!! #thankyou #diversity #careers #jobs #hiring #hbcuconnect #hbcustudents #hbcugrads #washingtondc

Not only were we able to kick off something that was long overdue, in the form of an annual in-person conference, but also we were able to celebrate 25 years in business here at HBCU CONNECT.


Here are a few highlights from the event:
  1. We had a goal to register at least 2,000 candidates for the event and ended up with over 3,600 candidates registered and over 2,600 resumes collected (attached).
  2. The ratio of students to professionals was roughly 9% students and 91% professionals. We are looking to host a virtual event in the Fall which should allow for more student participation for those of you looking to hire students for internships or jobs after graduation.
  3. This was our first year hosting a conference and not just a career fair, so thank all of you that helped us make this a reality for attendees. We had over 15 different sessions and so far, based on our survey results, 34% of attendees took advantage of attending some of the sessions offered during the day.
  4. Over 88% of attendees so far have reported back that they felt they were able to make fruitful connections and conversations with employers at the career fair (thank you!).

We look forward to continuing to partner with you throughout 2024 and also, we’d love to have you join us in Washington, DC for our 2025 conference, again, in June!
