(San Francisco, CA, Oct. 6, 2016)-The SF LGBT Center will host its 39th LGBTQ Career Fair, the nation's largest, on October 27, 2016.

Employers attending the career fair will be seeking all levels of qualified jobseekers, including those with backgrounds and qualifications in technology, administration, financial services, sales and marketing, management, retail, hospitality, among many others.

Among the over 40 companies attending are: LinkedIn, Microsoft, Pandora, Apple, SolarCity, Comcast, Accenture, and Nielsen. Media sponsor San Francisco Business Times will be also showcasing at the event.
