The premier Latino professional network iHispano is similar to LinkedIn, in nature, but specifically functions to help Latinos access and attain jobs. The website offers an impressive resume builder, resources for professional development, employment prospects, opportunities to network with like-minded Latino professions, and allows access to organizations that are hiring Latino talent.
The Latino community can benefit from a Hispanic-centered site that’s strongly purposed and committed to building a diverse workforce for the “needs of an increasingly diverse customer base.” iHispano promises a productive job search that will help members of the website to secure positions that match their skills, experience, and interest.
iHispano is also a marketplace for employers and advertisers who are looking to hire and target the Latino community. It is a good source for companies and organizations that are looking to diversify their employee base, increase their brand awareness, and publicize services and products. Employers have an opportunity to address professional Latinos in an arena that promotes the importance of creating connections and exploring the numerous opportunities that different companies have.
The website works as a division of The Professional Diversity Network, it being one of seven culturally distinct websites. The Professional Diversity Network’s seven sites are designed as personable and interactive job boards, meant to endorse communal career acquisition. The other professional development sites include www.AMightyRiver.com for African-American professionals, www.WomensCareerChannel.com for professional women, www.Miliary2Career.com for Veterans, www.ProAble.net for professionals with disabilities, www.OutProNet.com for LGBT professionals, and www.AsianCareerNetwork.com for Asian-American professionals. Combined, the sites host 2.5 million registered members.
