For Immediate Release:



SAN FRANCISCO (July 10, 2002) -- ProGayJobs, the first online company dedicated entirely to gay and lesbian jobseekers and employers who seek to diversify their workforces, today announces the launch of its enhanced and redesigned Web site.  In addition to a fresh look, the site,, offers new features to jobseekers and employers alike.

ProGayJobs provides job postings from companies that promote diversity and provide a safe, open environment for gay and lesbian workers.  The company enables employers to survey talent from the gay community, and jobseekers to identify quality firms committed to honoring their individuality.

In addition to the redesign, the enhanced ProGayJobs site now provides employers and jobseekers with additional tools and services such as "MatchMaker," a continuous auto responder instantly informing jobseekers and employers of potential employment matches.  Another exciting feature is the "Advanced Search," which allows users to search by type of employment sought(e.g  contract, part-time, full-time), location (e.g. state or city), industry, salary level, and keywords.

"The majority of the gay and lesbian workforce is highly educated, brand-loyal, and rich with talent " said David Bach, CEO and founder of ProGayJobs.  Employers recognize the value of a gay and lesbian presence in their workplace and the importance of a commitment to diversity in the workforce.  ProGayJobs provides a healthy applicant pool for employers seeking the best of the best. "Diversity hiring continues to be on the rise," Bach continued, "and employers are realizing the tremendous benefits of an open and diverse work environment - it's good business and translates to increased profitability."

Increasingly, major corporations such as Sun Microsystems, Levi's, Citibank and Subaru, to name only a few, have focused marketing efforts on the GLBT community and augmented company policies to include benefits such as recognition of domestic partnership.   According to the Human Rights Campaign, 3,572 United States companies, colleges and government organizations have diversity and domestic partner benefit policies in place -- a 25 percent increase over last year.

Upgrades to include:

For Jobseekers:  Free of charge, users can conduct specialized searches, keep track of resumes, applications, utilize our proprietary Matchmaker system, and access helpful job-seeking information such as recommendations on resume presentation and online resume marketing tips.  Jobseekers can research companies' specific diversity policies and the unique work environments they provide.

For Employers:  For a nominal fee, employers can post jobs, search our resume database and utilize our proprietary Matchmaker system.  ProGayJobs works with employers across the nation to help implement diversity policies and domestic partner benefits.  The company also provides useful tools and information to help employers provide safe and open environments for their employees.

ProGayJobs also publishes an online newsletter reporting on current issues and events in the employment arena and providing a question and answer forum to assist gay and lesbian employees and diversity-focused employers.

ProGayJobs is committed to serving the GLBT community through their Community Partners Program which allows non-profits to post jobs and advertise for free on the site.  Charter members of this program include San Francisco Aids Foundation, The San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center, and StopAids Project.  ProGayJobs is offered to companies locally and nationally that share the principles of diversity and fairness in the workplace.
