New Online Job Community and Social Recruiting Site Focuses on Diversity But Goes Beyond Race, Ethnicity and Gender

At Diversitree.com, we work with job candidates to help them put their best foot forward by highlighting their unique attributes and diverse experiences.

With today’s economy and employment market, job search candidates are competing for fewer jobs and looking for more ways to emphasize their unique strengths. The ability to highlight a diverse background when going through a job search gives candidates an advantage, but many people looking for employment think diversity is a term that has no relevance to their resume. Diversitree.com, a new online community and social recruiting site for job seekers, employers, and recruiters, challenges that belief by encouraging candidates and companies to look beyond the traditional notion of diversity; thus helping them to think outside the box to define the perfect “diverse” candidate as it relates to skills, education, experiences, and fit within the corporate culture.

“Diversity is about more than just race, ethnicity, or gender. Today, diversity is about the way we experience the world,” said Patricia Chaffee, founder and CEO, Diversitree, Inc. “At Diversitree.com, we work with job candidates to help them put their best foot forward by highlighting their unique attributes and diverse experiences. We also help encourage our employers and recruiters to look at the whole person – from their professional to their personal experiences – allowing the hiring process to go beyond just the resume while redefining the traditional definition of diversity.”

Diverse Candidates Can Find Their Dream Job
Diversitree.com offers a supportive online community for job search candidates looking to showcase their unique attributes; whether it be their race, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion, personal orientation, military experience, specific international and cultural knowledge, multilingual ability, or more. Through the member-only site, job candidates are presented with exclusive, industry-specific job postings. Instead of wading through irrelevant, duplicate, aggregated job posts like many job sites offer, Diversitree.com ensures candidates find exclusive job postings that are targeted to their search and relevant to their diverse experiences.

Job candidates can also turn to Diversitree.com for job search advice through its YOUniversity blog, weekly newsletter, weekly video series and its many social engagement platforms, including an informative, members only Facebook group. Diversitree.com job candidates can learn more about how to create their own personal brand to boost their marketability, as well as why posting their resume publicly online may not be such a good idea.

Matching Employers and Recruiters With the Right Diverse Candidate
Now more than ever, innovative companies that want to compete on a global scale need to embrace a diverse workforce. According to the 2012 NYSE Euronext CEO Report (August 2012), 44 percent of CEOs and 43 percent of U.S. small business owners believe one of the most effective ways to spur innovation is to hire a diverse workforce.

Diversitree.com helps employers and recruiters find professional, qualified candidates for their jobs through its proprietary matching software. In addition, Diversitree.com’s enhanced screening capabilities make the most of a hiring manager’s time by limiting search results to candidates who truly have the background and skills to fit their corporate culture and grow their bottom line.

“Equal opportunities begin by recognizing diversity as an opportunity,” said Tom Ruff, president and CEO of Tom Ruff Company and best-selling author of "How to Break into Pharmaceutical Sales, A Headhunter’s Strategy." “A service like Diversitree.com gives employers and recruiters who are committed to diversity, the tools they need to find professional, relevant, and qualified, candidates who are the perfect fit for the job; saving both time and money.”
