CareersUSA® Gains National Recognition — Staffing Firm Ranked among Nation's Top 500 Companies

Boca Raton, FL — CareersUSA, a 27-year-old, nationally acclaimed staffing firm, is pleased to announce its inclusion on three top business lists in the United States for 2007 by, the nation's leading multicultural Internet site.

CareersUSA was listed on three Div500 lists for the United States: Top Diversity Owned Business (#131), Top Women Owned Business (#63) and Top Small Business (#88).

The Div500 is the eighth annual listing of the nation's top 500 small businesses, women-owned businesses and diversity-owned businesses. The companies listed on the Div500 lists represent top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that small, women-owned, or diversity-owned businesses are insignificant. Div500 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with these types of companies.

"These businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with," said Kenton Clarke, chief executive officer of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built "These top 500 business segments can carry their own, provide jobs, products and services, and generate wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business."

Due to recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations throughout the country recognize that their businesses have been positively impacted by buying products and services from small and diversity-owned companies, which contribute more than $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.

CareersUSA's founder and Chief Executive Officer Marilyn J. Ounjian was thrilled to be included on these important Div500 lists.

"Being on these lists is critical to minority businesses since many large corporations will not do business with you if you are not on the list," she said.
