Bilingual job search site, Hispanic-Jobs.com named the top employers and advertisers in 2011 who contributed to posting their job openings and ads on the site.
"We want to recognize those companies and agencies who have demonstrated their commitment to reaching out to bilingual and diversity candidates and posting volume job opportunities in front of our audience,” says Simone Emmons, founder of the company. Emmons is a former Human Resources professional and founded the site in 2004 in order to cater to what she saw as the growing demand for bilingual Spanish speaking workers.
As the U.S. Hispanic population continues to grow, employers are increasingly looking for skilled bilingual workers to fill job vacancies. Spanish has become the nation’s second most widely spoken language and companies have responded through initiatives to recruit more Hispanic employees. Hispanic-Jobs.com allows employers to reach jobseekers online who are fluent in both Spanish and English.
The following companies are being recognized for their volume job postings in 2011:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of California

These companies represent a wide range of industries including education, banking, insurance, transportation and entertainment. In order to sell products and services in a diverse multicultural market, companies are looking for candidates who understand the language and culture of their vendors and customers. Hispanic-Jobs.com was created to make it easier to bring qualified jobseekers and employers together in one centralized location.
In the current economic climate, efforts to add more jobs and increase spending can boost the bottom line for many small, women-owned and minority businesses. “Not only do we want to recognize these companies for reaching out to potential jobseekers with their job opportunities and ads but also for supporting a small, woman-owned business,” says Emmons.
The site is also recognizing the advertisers who contributed in 2011 which include:
- TMP Worldwide
