RCD, Chamber offer jobs board
Resource Center Dallas and the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Jobing.com, are launching a new job board intended to give members of the LGBT community a new tool in their job hunting arsenal, Chamber and RCD officials have announced.

The job board is an outgrowth of a previous program developed by Texas Instruments for use by the Chamber and its workforce development partner Resource Center Dallas. Job seekers and employers can access the job board through the Resource Center’s Web site at RCDallas.org and clicking on the link on the home page, or the Chamber’s Web site at GLBTChamber.org and clicking on the "GLBT Jobs" button.
