Job Bank Service

Introduction

The American Psychological Association's Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs (OEMA) has implemented a Job Bank to assist employers seeking to hire ethnic minority psychologists. OEMA's Job Bank is a computerized database with entries on over 3,000 ethnic minority psychologists. Information can be generated from such data variables as major field of study, professional specialty, geographic location, type of employment setting, ethnicity, etc. The Job Bank also is used as a tool in research and targeted marketing strategies. Persons wishing to request a search of the OEMA Job Bank and mailing labels must comply with the following "Service Criteria" and complete the attached "OEMA Job Bank Search Request and Specifications" form. Fees will be charged as noted.
