Even more, a lot of the job openings are for mid-level to high-level positions such as managers, program directors, executive assistants, and senior vice presidents.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, about 45% of Black men in Chicago age 20-24 are jobless, and overall about 37% of Chicago’s young Black adults don’t have a job.

The numbers are similar in other urban cities like New York City and Los Angeles, and joblessness in Black communities is often blamed on discrimination, poverty, and lack of equal opportunity.

But another factor that is often overlooked is that African Americans sometimes don't know where to look to find jobs from companies that want to hire them. And that's why has quickly become the solution to the problem.
