Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — The national unemployment rate is high at about 8.9%, but the Labor Dept reports that Black unemployment is almost double that at 16.7% – the highest in 27 years. As a result, the owners of BlackJobs.com are stepping up their efforts to alert African American professionals that they have thousands of well-paying jobs listed on their web site.

The jobs are being offered by hundreds of major corporations, and hundreds of smaller organizations, such as local community colleges, that have highly concentrated diversity initiatives. In other words, they want to hire more minorities.

Launched by Columbus Ohio-based Lee Moss Media, BlackJobs.com is essentially an online career center that allows employers to post jobs, and allows jobseekers to upload resumes and apply for jobs. The thousands of full-time and part-time positions listed on the web site vary in industry, and are open to both college graduates and non-college professionals with 3+ years of experience.
