The demand for bilingual workers fluent in both Spanish and English remains steady, according to Hispanic-Jobs.com. Companies are continuing to post new jobs each week demonstrating a continued need for bilingual professionals.
The ability to speak both Spanish and English fluently is creating many opportunities for bilingual professionals including more job diversity and flexibility. Fluency in these two languages can create higher salaries and increase an employee's value with opportunities to travel.
As the growth in the Latino population rises, more companies are looking to recruit local talent who can communicate with their customer base. According to Salary.com, the pay for a bilingual employee can range from 5% - 20% more per hour than a position's base rate.
In addition to education and training, many employers look for the following skill sets when recruiting bilingual candidates:
- The ability to speak, read and write in another language – candidates must demonstrate not just verbal proficiency but the ability to communicate in written form.
- Industry Experience – candidates who have worked previously in the same industry will most likely have an advantage over those that do not.
- Cultural Understanding – Candidates should understand the culture of the community in which they serve. This helps to bridge any gaps in communication. This is especially true for individuals working in sales, marketing, healthcare and community services
