Milwaukee, WI, August 15, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A new website was launched in late July that promises to assist prospective transgender employees in finding employment. TJobBank is described as the first and only organization dedicated to providing employment services to the transgender community. The site hopes to bring hope to those in the historically under-employed transgender population.
Jillian Barfield, Director of Implementation of TJobBank, said “In addition to being a part of history, the presence of job listings posted by proactive companies on our site spotlights their organization’s commitment to true workplace diversity while at the same time tapping into an all too often overlooked but vastly impressive community of talented individuals.”
The need for such a service seems overdue and may help to make what some of us take for granted, the dream of secure employment, a reality for many unemployed transgender professionals.
When an employer posts a job on TJobBank, prospective candidates apply for positions using a process that lets them reply to postings with as little or as much information as they would like to provide. This option allows trans-people to protect their anonymity, which can be very important to those in the transgender community. A searchable resume database feature is promised in the near future which will allow prospective employers to search for employees with a required skill-set without disclosing their personal information unless provided by the candidate themselves.
TJobBank can be found on the internet at http://www.tjobbank.com. The site offers transgender candidates an opportunity to find employment and for proactive and truly diverse companies the opportunity to post employment opportunities to a specific segment of the population.
