HBCU CONNECT highlights 2011 top 50 employers of HBCU Students & Graduates
Posted By: Will Moss on October 10, 2011

Columbus, Ohio, USA October 10th, 2011-- Based on its extensive relationships with faculty and staff members at our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities and also the largest database of companies actively hiring from the population of students and graduates from HBCUs, HBCUConnect.com has announced their 2011 list of the top 50 employers of HBCU Students & Graduates.

In order for companies to be considered HBCU CONNECT uses a criteria list that includes a company’s HBCU specific outreach, conversations with the companies to learn about their recruitment efforts, relationships the companies have with HBCUs or alumni organizations, and the overall visibility of the efforts made by the companies being considered. Consideration for the actual rankings for the companies was based on their consistency in effort, level of investment, actual hires and creativity in their outreach.

“Over the last 11 years, my team has been working hard to connect employers with the talent produced by our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Having a top 50 list is a great way to congratulate and encourage these companies to continue their efforts, and also it is a great way to notify HBCU faculty, students and graduates about the employers really putting forth an effort to recruit them,” said Will Moss, CEO and Founder of HBCU CONNECT.
