NSHMBA. The students had 10 pre-scheduled interviews and landed 24
on-site interviews at the Expo, and one student has received an internship
offer on site!”
In addition to the career expo and professional
development opportunities, the conference events were well received and
attended, including the Power of the Hispanic Market event, the Women’s
Leadership Network Reception, the Target Scholarship Lunch, the Home Depot lunches
and the Chrysler breakfast.
The Brillante Awards Dinner and Gala, held on Saturday, October 6th,

which they were honored. Giovanna Alvarez, Director, Su Casa Hispanic Center
said, "I would like to commend NSHMBA for the excellent organization of the
