NAACP ANNOUNCES NAACP DIVERSITY JOB BOARDDecember 31, 1969
The NAACP and Personnel Strategies Inc. (PSI) announced today a partnership to produce a diversity job board to be featured at www.naacp.org. The job board, entitled www.NAACPJobFinder.com, promotes career opportunities to NAACP members and visitors from across America. The www.NAACPJobFinder.com will showcase opportunities from a cross section of industries and locations.
“The NAACP job board addresses our principal objective to ensure political, social and economic equality for all citizens. It also provides a more comprehensive approach to providing racially diverse, qualified job seekers access to a broad range of the nation's top employers,” said NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. “With so many Americans out of work we hope we can provide new resources and opportunity.”
The NAACP boasts one of the Nation’s most diverse and active membership websites. It is anticipated that during the 2009 NAACP Centennial, a large number of visitors will be registering and searching the positions at www.NAACPJobFinder.com. For employers, this represents an exception branding opportunity to promote their diversity initiatives and acknowledge the NAACP Centennial.
“PSI www.psijobfair.com has worked with the NAACP producing NAACP Diversity Career Fairs since 1993. Providing a state of the art job board technology that reaches a truly diverse market of motivated and socially active candidates should be a great tool for employers. We will also be reaching thousands of candidates who each year attend a NAACP Diversity Career Fair,” says Mike Hall, President of PSI. “We like the online and onsite solutions being offered by this partnership.”
2009 marks the NAACP Centennial Celebration. The NAACP Headquarters, based in Baltimore, MD, along with its 1,700 units nationwide, will host celebrations and observances throughout the year ending with the Annual Convention in New York on July 11-16. The NAACP National Convention Centennial Celebration Diversity Job Fair will be sponsored as part of the Convention on July 14-15, 2009 at the New York Hilton.
