Leviton Manufacturing, Little Neck, N.Y., has teamed with Brazen Careerist in a strategic initiative to attract young, top talent to Leviton's global workforce. As one of Brazen Careerist's five Pioneer Launch Partners, and the first manufacturer to participate in the strategic venture, Leviton will provide continuous content, including job and blog postings, commentary and insights, to the Brazen Careerist social networking site, which targets young, career-seeking millennials.

As a Pioneer Launch Partner, Leviton shares the stage with other early adopters of social media as a human capital recruitment tool. Companies in the financial, food service, job placement and career mentoring industries round out Brazen Careerist's early sponsors, and give the career networking site a deep job pool with links to hiring managers at world-renowned companies. Each company's mini-site consists of a company profile, listing of employment opportunities, blog posts, social commentary page, photos and write-ups of statement of philosophy and corporate culture.

“Leviton's human capital initiatives are vital to our leadership and on-going success in our industry. It is essential that Leviton be positioned on the cutting edge of the latest Web 2.0 tools and technology as we engage our current and future employees. Brazen Careerist provides us a great outlet to reach the next generation of workers,” said Mark Fogel, vice president of human resources for Leviton.
