Press Release Summary: New Site Offers Hope to Under-employed Transgender Community

Press Release Body: A new website was launched in late July that promises to assist
prospective transgender employees in finding employment. TJobBank is described as
the first and only organization dedicated to providing employment services to the
transgender community. The site hopes to bring hope to those in the historically
under-employed transgender population.

Jillian Barfield, Director of Implementation of TJobBank, said "In addition to being
a part of history, the presence of job listings posted by proactive companies on our
site spotlights their organization's commitment to true workplace diversity while at
the same time tapping into an all too often overlooked but vastly impressive
community of talented individuals."

The need for such a service seems overdue and may help to make what some of us take
for granted, the dream of secure employment, a reality for many unemployed
transgender professionals.

When an employer posts a job on TJobBank, prospective candidates apply for positions
using a process that lets them reply to postings with as little or as much
information as they would like to provide. This option allows trans-people to
protect their anonymity, which can be very important to those in the transgender
community. A searchable resume database feature is promised in the near future
which will allow prospective employers to search for employees with a required
skill-set without disclosing their personal information unless provided by the
candidate themselves.

TJobBank can be found on the internet at The site offers
transgender candidates an opportunity to find employment and for proactive and truly
diverse companies the opportunity to post employment opportunities to a specific
segment of the population.
