Affirmative Action employers are constantly challenged to locate qualified job candidates, including those who are minorities or women. Sometimes, finding sources of candidates can be problematic. The World Wide Web has changed the way employers are able to conduct their candidate searches. Some say for the better. Others contend that using the internet is too much of a hassle to be worthwhile. Your opinion will undoubtedly be dependent on whether or not you have had success using WWW sources in your own candidate searches.

There are thousands of organizations, associations, and private businesses across the country that consider themselves primary sources of minority and female job candidates. They work hard at attracting individuals to their sites. The theory is simple. If a source can offer employers many candidates, the employer will be satisfied and return the next time they need qualified people for their job openings.

While we do not endorse any of the organizations which are sponsors of the web sites on our list, we think it is easier to have someplace to begin a hunt for qualified candidates.
