Time Warner Cable is committed to attract, develop and retain the best talent from various backgrounds.

The leading cable operator in the U.S. recently took part in career fairs conducted by two of the country's most recognized diversity organizations: the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People or “NAACP” and National Council of La Raza or “NCLR.”

The NCLR Career Fair was held in San Antonio on July 12 while the NAACP Career Fair took place in Kansas City on July 13 and 14. Both fairs provided platforms for information about a wide range of organizations and important issues such as business, government, and civil rights.

NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members are the advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors, according to officials at Time Warner (News - Alert) Cable.

Attendees to the Time Warner Cable booth learned about the company, its mission and services.

NCLR is the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States that works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans.

Time Warner Cable also participated in the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council "Access to Capital" Conference held in Washington, D.C. The eighth annual "Access to Capital" conference held at the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel on July 19 and July 20.

The Minority Media and Telecommunications Council is a national nonprofit organization for promoting and preserving equal opportunity and civil rights in the mass media and telecommunications industries.

"This was a great opportunity for job-seekers to showcase their skills and talent in today's highly competitive marketplace,” Rahman Khan, Time Warner Cable diversity recruiting strategy leader, said. “Throughout the years, we've recruited and hired hundreds of people at job fairs throughout the country.”

Time Warner Cable will also participate in the Diversity in Communications Career Expo in September, sponsored by NAMIC, the company announced.

Time Warner Cable serves more than 14 million customers. Time Warner Cable Business Class offers a suite of phone, Internet, Ethernet and cable television services to businesses of all sizes. The advertising arm of Time Warner Cable, Time Warner Cable Media Sales, offers targeted and affordable advertising solutions.

Recently Time Warner Cable announced partnership with Sierra Wireless, a provider of wireless solutions and services, to bring Sierra’s IntelliGo dual-mode mobile hotspot device to Road Runner Mobile customers on the Time Warner Cable 4G network, TMCnet reported.
