With thousands of Puerto Rican evacuees arriving to Florida daily in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rican entrepreneur and talent management expert Robert Newland has built a job board which caters specifically to this group. The job portal, LatinoJobsOnline.com, has information on thousands of job opportunities in both English and Spanish from all around the state and beyond.
“Many Puerto Rican evacuees coming to Florida are experienced, educated and highly employable individuals. With low unemployment in our state, this becomes a win-win,” said Robert Newland who moved from Puerto Rico to Florida 14 years ago in order to expand his business.
The job board will host jobs from multiple cities across the state, though jobs outside Florida and in Puerto Rico are also welcome. One unique feature about LatinoJobsOnline.com is that all revenue in excess of operating expenses will be donated to organizations supporting evacuee relief efforts. “The idea behind this initiative,” explained Newland, “is to support the evacuees and our community, not to make a profit. It is our duty as socially-responsible private organizations to help our community flourish and succeed. Helping these evacuees connect to jobs will help them rebuild their lives and help our community prosper.”
LatinoJobsOnline.com is owned and operated by Newland Associates Group, Inc., a Hispanic-owned talent management organization.
Its brands include recruitment practice Newland Associates Executive Search, which provides talent to many top organizations around the country; they are also the Florida/Caribbean partner for Career Partners International, one of the largest providers of outplacement and leader development services in the world with over 300 locations worldwide; and they are also founders of HRfrenzy.com, the nation’s first and only online platform for freelance HR consultants and recruiters.
