The president of the Urban League of Greater Kansas City said the organization’s new job board will provide a better match between minority job seekers and employers. The site, UPostUMatch.com, will be demonstrated Thursday to Kansas City area employers, human resource officials and other Urban League supporters. It’s designed to be a service where hirers can, for $75 per job posting, advertise openings, particularly to minority applicants.
Resume posting is free to applicants. President Gwen Grant said part of the Urban League’s mission is to encourage diversity in the workplace. She noted that about 98 percent of the Urban League’s clients are African-American but that all minorities are welcome to use the agency’s services.
