Resources for Women, Minorities, & Other Audiences

kendra

MyPerfectResume has created resources specifically set up to meet the needs or address the interests of various groups, such as women, persons of varied nationalities or ethnic backgrounds, and so on. The Riley Guide also provides pages of resources and information specifically intended for military personnel, ex-offenders and former felons, and disabled individuals – but there may be some overlap with those resources and the ones listed on this page. You’re certainly not limited to these resources, but they may have ideas or topics which speak directly to you. Even the resources listed under specific affinity groups may be useful to a broader audience. The Riley Guide’s page of Business & Employer Rankings also covers top employers for diversity groups.
