Unconventional Networking Sites
A growing number of culturally diverse students, grads and professionals are seeking alternatives to conventional networking sites.
iHispano has filled a niche for Latino professionals. The free site offers job postings, networking opportunities, and much more.
LatProNetworks, also offers recruiting, job search for bilingual speakers and more.
See also HireDiversity.com, a site devoted to the minority job search.
These sites offer a unique opportunity for students, grads and professionals to converse and network in their first language, if they so choose. This is especially helpful to those who are monolingual, or presently learning English as a Second Language.
For more about networking, see the companion Quick Tip, “Where to Network”, which spotlights two great sites for grad students and those who have graduated.
