Statistics show that the unemployment and underemployment rate among the estimated 20 million BVI individuals in the U.S. is a staggering 80 percent. A large number of these people have college degrees in IT and other technical career fields and are not receiving the same equal employment consideration as sighted candidates. For the BVI community, this is a diversity and inclusion unemployment epidemic that few people realize exists or understand how to solve. Take a look at this infographic to learn more: BIT Brochure
Our goal is to place 10,000 highly qualified BVI candidates who are eager for an opportunity to show their value and capabilities to employers. Since 2013, BIT has helped secure dozens of job placements for BVI candidates with DaVita, Aetna/iTriage, Comcast, Denver Health and many more companies and organizations in the healthcare, financial services, telecommunications and other industries.
BIT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that charges a modest 12 percent direct-placement fee in accordance with the terms and conditions of an executed BIT direct placement agreement.
