House Democrats announce resume bank

Nov. 7, 2012 at 8:48 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- People seeking jobs with Democrats in the U.S. House can submit resumes to an online job bank, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland said Wednesday.

Hoyer said newly elected members of Congress would find the resume bank useful as they put staffs together, and it will also be used by sitting members filling vacancies. Democrats picked up seats in Congress in Tuesday's election.

The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Blue Dog Coalition, the New Democrat Coalition, and the Congressional Progressive Caucus joined Hoyer for the announcement.

"The resume bank launched today will allow House Democrats to improve our hiring process and further strengthen our staff diversity," Hoyer said. "It advances our commitment to openness, transparency, and equal opportunity by creating a new way for any citizen to submit a resume that will be shared with all House Democratic offices, including the large incoming freshmen class. We are excited to launch this new, unprecedented process, which we believe will be an invaluable resource to our Members as they prepare for the 113th Congress, and for applicants looking for a job on Capitol Hill."

Job seekers can upload their resumes at http://democraticwhip.gov/resumes. Resumes will be put on the Democratic House intranet, DemCom.
