Out & Equal's LGBTCareerLink Shifts into Overdrive  
   
 
Posting an average of 10,000 jobs and hosting 5,200 job hunters every month means we are shifting into overdrive with a new job board technology that positions our LGBT talent recruitment tool for continued growth. We are making sure our job board meets the talent acquisition needs of the growing number of employers who view Out & Equal as the number one place to source professional LGBT employees now and in the future.   

 

Both job hunters and employers will enjoy upgraded account controls and a variety of new features and tools.

LGBT Talent Recruiting Tip One

When it comes to targeting LGBT professionals, using the well-known large job boards is not the best way to reach out and hire LGBT employees. While resumes by the many thousands may be accessible there, chances are only a small percentage of them belong to viable LGBT professionals. And how would talent acquisition teams know for sure they are actually targeting the LGBT workforce there?      

  

In contrast, Out & Equal's LGBTCareerLink, the first and only LGBT-focused job board, is a value-oriented talent recruiting tool where reaching the LGBT workforce is a given. After all, Out & Equal has been in this business for a long time!

 

Purchase a sponsorship subscription prior to Dec. 31, 2012 at this year's pricing and your company will be automatically migrated to our new job board.
