On September 29, 2006, The Society for Financial Education provided an opportunity for minority students to participate in a Mortgage Lending Industry Career Fair.
The Career Fair was held as a separate event on the final day of the Diversity & Emerging Market Conference sponsored by the Lending Industry Diversity Conference, Inc. (LIDC), Compliance Technologies, Genworth Financial, and the Mortgage Banker’s Association of America (MBAA). Each student had an opportunity to meet and talk one-on-one with the nation’s fastest growing and leading mortgage lenders and other prospective employers who value diversity.
The following schools participated in the career fair:
Bowie State University
Coppin State University
Florida Memorial University
North Carolina A&T University
North Carolina Central University
Elizabeth City College
Savannah State University
Virginia State University
Winston-Salem State University
University of Maryland Eastern Shore
The career fair was a success with over 200 students in attendance. The students were enlightened and gained insight into the mortgage lending industry.
Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole, President of Bennett College, served as the keynote speaker of this event.
