New & Improved BDPA Career Center


I have been a member of BDPA for 20 years. BDPA advances the careers of African Americans in the Information Technology (IT) industry from the 'classroom to the boardroom'. I'll be coming to Washington DC on August 15-18, 2007 to participate in the 29th annual National BDPA Technology Conference.

Anyhow, I wanted to share with villagers information about the new & improved BDPA Career Center. Some of the features of the new BDPA Career Center are:
  • Brand new look, feel, and easier navigation
  • Professional search-and-apply functionality
  • A private, hosted resume database
  • Powerful tools including job search agents, email options, skills highlighting and more
  • Import (cut and paste) resume into the system
  • Search jobs by keyword, location, or category to find the right position for you!
Click here to add your resume to the database or search for IT jobs nationally. BDPA can help you advance your career in the IT profession through their career center, education, mentoring, and business networking, BDPA promotes innovation, technical skills, business savvy and personal growth. Personally, I encourage villagers to join BDPA!

BDPA corporate sponsors value diversity and are looking for top notch IT talent within BDPA membership. If you know someone who is unemployed or under-employed in the IT industry ... you should point them to the BDPA Career Center.

There are 54 BDPA chapters around the country ... perhaps there is one near you? Out of curiousity ... have you heard of BDPA prior to seeing this post?

Thank you for introducing the great work you have been doing in the field of IT. I like what I see at the BDPA Career Center. We have been working on providing youth with career level professional development skills, before they get out of high school. Mastering computer technology and exploiting online education and strategies is part of our master plan. It's good to have a source like this to tap into. Now to get more African-American kids to pursue this course of development.

Eddie - I invite you and those working on youth education programs in the area of computer technology to check out the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) programs offered by BDPA. You can visit my website --> www.betf.org for more information if you have time or inclination.
