The Black Information Network and CareerBuilder are teaming up to launch the “100,000 Careers” initiative, a first-of-its-kind program that aims to connect Black job seekers with employers who are seeking a highly qualified and diverse workforce with Black American job seekers who are looking to advance to higher levels or start a career.
The mission of the 100,000 Careers initiative is to help Black people looking for work find a job and build the career of their dreams.
The partnership includes a platform that features tools to help candidates get started, from job listings, easy resume building resources, and custom content designed to help Black listeners identify their transferrable skills and discover new careers. The 100,000 Careers platform is a one-stop-shop for linking employers with Black American career-seekers looking to advance.
“This strategic partnership directly aligns with our mission of building personal success for all and will guide Black Information Network listeners to a host of tools that connect them to roles that best suit their skills leading to more meaningful careers,” said Kristin Kelley, Chief Marketing Officer at CareerBuilder.
“One of our highest priorities has been to call attention to the disproportionate income and unemployment gaps the Black community faces,” said BIN President Tony Coles. “That’s why we are thrilled that our partners at CareerBuilder have joined us in this effort to help 100,000 listeners not only find work but to help them leverage their transferrable skills to build careers.”
