"The time is right for somebody to take on minority hiring," said Chairman Gloria Kane. Advertising, public relations and marketing professionals are being sought for agencies and in-house departments throughout the U.S.
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics figures show there were 496,000 midlevel marketing professionals in the U.S. in 1994. Only 31.2% were women, 4.1% African-American and 3.5% Hispanic.
Ms. Kane said NK is the first agency to create a division focused on any kind of recruitment efforts. It is located at 3141 Hood St., Suite 618, 75219. Phone: (214) 522-6094.
