    In today’s competitive workplace, finding a job often depends on who you know, not just what you can do. Networking is essential to being able to obtain a prosperous career. However, many people (especially black people) do not have the resources or connections to properly network. I think this website can help to end this pattern. Destee.com forum members live in several different states and in some cases different countries. Why not use each other to network? Let’s create a forum to list job openings in the companies we work for. We can also list job openings in our respective counties/states. This forum can also be used to provide tips for job readiness skills (resume writing, cover letters, job searching techniques, etc). What do you think family? Is there a need for a job skills/employment opportunities forum?

    Pan, stupendous idea, brother! We need such a forum MORE than any other forum we've got up in this piece... We need our people EMPLOYED, and making money, so that they can take care of themselves and their families... Then we can discuss culture and art and all that wonderful stuff, which is meaningless to an unemployed person... FANTASTIC IDEA! Let's get it done!

    Peace!
    Isaiah

    Thank you again Neon! Even if you were a head hunter, if you are trying to provide my people with income...I'm not mad at you. Hold off on some more until Destee gives the "Ya" or "Nay" on the Employment Opportunities Forum.
