(There are) 5 million foreign visitors, speaking a myriad of languages, (who) come to the city each year and many end up needing assistance.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2008
According to Wikipedia, "Linguistics is the science and philosophy of a language." It is very tedious to be a scientific expert of a single language but bilinguals achieve the feat with two or more than two languages. Alas, it is more than tedious to find a suitable bilingual job for the bilingual professionals today.
Keeping that in mind, EmploymentCrossing.com's newly launched BiLingualCrossing.com aspires to offer all types of bilingual jobs, details on career advancement opportunities, and employment information for the bilingual industry. With more than 4,500 jobs posted in its launch, the site can be singled out as the largest job board in the world for the bilinguals. Bilingual job profiles range from translation and interpretation work to writing, teaching, and training assignments. Bilingual professionals are required to have formal training in linguistics and a strong interest in the relationship between language and performance is a must.
Bilingual teachers are already needed desperately, according to the report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is expected that the number of non-English-speaking students will increase creating demand for the bilinguals and for those who can teach English as a second language. Also according to Julia Hollister in her article "Business Potential Boosts Demand for Bilingual Applicants" in Job Journal enunciated the importance of bilingual people. She backed her claim citing Laurie Armstrong, vice president of public relations with the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau, who says "(There are) 5 million foreign visitors, speaking a myriad of languages, (who) come to the city each year and many end up needing assistance."
Verily, it is a fact that having bilingual skills is a helpful trait as more and more businesses in multicultural cities are reaching out to the untouched sectors of the population.
Further, according to CareerBuilder.com, the topmost industries for bilingual candidates are healthcare, financial services, social services, and tourism.
"In this market it is extremely hard to get a job with a recruiter, and recruiters typically work with very few companies," says A. Harrison Barnes, founder and CEO of BilingualCrossing. "Job openings that are not widely known or publicized are the easiest jobs to get."
According to Barnes, the most popular searches on the site have been:
