Office of Personnel Management Director Kay Coles James Announces Online Partnership with Hispanic Advocacy Group for USAJOBS Link

LULAC enters strategic partnership with OPM to link website to OPM's USAJOBS website

WASHINGTON - United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Kay Coles James announced today that the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) has accepted the OPM challenge to increase efforts to identify top talent within the Hispanic community by partnering with OPM through a link on the LULAC website to OPM's USAJOBS website. This is part of OPM's ongoing effort to partner with the Hispanic community to educate Latinos about job opportunities in the federal government.

"We are constantly seeking and utilizing new means to attract the best and the brightest to federal service," said James. "USAJOBS is a tremendous resource, and by linking up with LULAC and other groups we can reach more qualified candidates throughout the Nation. The role of outside organizations acting as responsible partners with OPM in the effort to identify top talent is critical because the responsibility for making federal opportunities known within the Hispanic community is a shared responsibility."

"LULAC is happy to partner with OPM and link from our website to OPM's USAJOBS website," added Brent Wilkes, executive director of LULAC. "The USAJOBS website is a tremendous resource and can offer great benefits to Latinos as they look for employment in the federal government. The recently improved USAJOBS website allows visitors to readily access job information."

Since the launch of the new USAJOBS on August 4, 2003, there have been 58,912,596 unique visitors to the site, 679,887,590 page views, and 636,719 new resumes created.

USAJOBS contains a prominent Spanish language link to federal employment information fact sheets on various topics including the Hispanic hiring initiative translated into Spanish (www.usajobs.gov/faqs.asp).
