What do we do?

We help minority candidates connect with the most sought after companies in the country.

Diversity recruiting has become a must-have in the workforce, yet recruiters say their number one problem is finding diverse talent. The lack of exposure in the minority community to the breadth of career opportunities has traditionally left talented candidates unaware of great roles and responsibilities they could pursue.

Jopwell's helping build a diverse workforce by building a platform that connects talented minorities with top-tier companies across a range of industries for hiring opportunities.
