How to Simplify HBCU Recruitment| HBCU Careers


Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have untapped pools of talent waiting to be hired. Students of any race and ethnicity can apply and there are over 220,000 students enrolled, according to the U.S. Department of Education. HBCU Careers is dedicated to connecting employers with top talent at nearly all the HBCUs across the country with our simple job-posting website. Though HBCUs make up only 3% of America’s colleges and universities, they produce nearly 20% of all black college graduates with a bachelor’s degree, entering all kinds of professional fields. Still, many companies are not recruiting this great sourcing channel at the same rate as students who attend predominantly white institutions.
