Minority Professional Network Provides Hispanics with Online Career, Economic, and Lifestyle Connection

[Hispanic PR Wire - March 7, 2002] - The Minority Professional Network (MPN) has launched its web site, providing Asians, Hispanics, African-Americans and other minority groups with the first national online “Career, Economic and Lifestyle Connection?? for progressive minority professionals.

Entrepreneurship, Wealth Accumulation, Career Center, Employer Center, Professional Organizations, Minority Businesses, Student Resources, and a Book Channel are some of the content areas accessed at www.minorityprofessionalnetwork.com.  MPN Metro Pages include event postings, local news and business profiles. Its initial 14 Metro Pages (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle and Washington/Baltimore) address cities with rapidly growing, diverse professional populations. Local and national event postings allow minority business leaders to stay connected.

Employers utilize MPN to post job openings that are accessible by the more than 10,000 minority professionals already in the MPN national user community. By 2008, Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians and other minority groups are projected to comprise an increasing share of the labor force, while the percent of white, non-Hispanic persons in the labor force will decrease from 73.9 to 70.7 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Forrester Research projects the online career sites industry - one of the fastest-growing sectors on the Internet - will grow 40 percent annually from $1.2 billion in 2000 to $7.2 billion in 2005.

Co-founders CJ Bland and Thomas Brooks are renowned network coalition builders with a total of 30 years of experience in sales, marketing, consulting, IT, entrepreneurship, and organizational leadership.

“The Career Center provides original articles related to management, diversity, job hunting, hiring, networking, and interviewing,: said CJ Bland, MPN President. “Users also enjoy information on economic development, entrepreneurship, small businesses, and real estate development. The lifestyle content includes information on travel, spirituality, health, literature, and other aspects of extraordinary living.”
