Millions of African Americans Are Unemployed, But This Web Site Solves That Problem!

African American job seekers

Nationwide — According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national Black unemployment rate is about 7%, meaning that at least two million African Americans are currently unemployed. But BlackJobs.com is solving that problem! The web site connects employers dedicated to diversity hiring with more than 300,000 professional African American job seekers.

For the job seeker, the web site is 100% free to use. Users can browse through more than 100,000 current job openings across the country. The jobs pay anywhere from $50,000/ year to $150,000/ year and represent all categories including healthcare, nursing, IT, engineering, communications, advertising/ marketing, customer service, graphic design, journalism, and more.

Even more, a lot of the job openings are for mid-level to high-level positions such as managers, program directors, executive assistants, and senior vice presidents.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, about 45% of Black men in Chicago age 20-24 are jobless, and overall about 37% of Chicago’s young Black adults don’t have a job.

The numbers are similar in other urban cities like New York City and Los Angeles, and joblessness in Black communities is often blamed on discrimination, poverty, and lack of equal opportunity.

But another factor that is often overlooked is that African Americans sometimes don’t know where to look to find jobs from companies that want to hire them. And that’s why BlackJobs.com has quickly become the solution to the problem.

Job seekers interested in more information can browse job openings for free and even sign up for free email job alerts by going to http://BlackJobs.com
