Bilingual Latino Career Company to spearhead the Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Employment Initiative to assist Puerto Ricans with employment opportunities

Latcareers.com the largest Bilingual & Diversity Recruitment website in the US has spearheaded the Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Employment Initiative.  LATCareers.com is working with various employer organizations to host strategic career fairs in New York (October 19, 2017), Washington DC (October 26, 2017), Boston (November 2, 2017) and Philadelphia (November 9, 2017) be part of the Puerto Rico relief effort.  These free career fairs for displaced Puerto Ricans residing in these cities are to bring together both employers who are providing job opportunities to displaced Puerto Ricans that have traveled to live with relatives mostly along the Mid Atlantic and Northeast where there are large Puerto Rican Communities.  They number in the tens of thousands and the numbers are growing.

The largest population of Puerto Ricans outside of Puerto Rico is the area between Boston and Washington DC.  This area is home to more than 1.5 Million Puerto Ricans according to the US Census. “Being that we are the most established Latino, Bilingual and Diversity Job Board in the US we are compelled to lead this effort” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO of Latcareers.com “This is our 14th year of having these Bilingual and Diversity Career Fairs and we understand the importance of our organization leading the effort to find permanent employment for the tens of thousands of these displaced professionals and citizens who have now come to the mainland” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO of Latcareers.com  “Our team has been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to find career opportunities for these displaced professionals that want to re-establish themselves on the mainland given the devastation in Puerto Rico.  Latcareers.com has conducted a poll of over 2500 Puerto Rican career seekers that have come to the mainland since the hurricane and more than 73% of these Puerto Ricans plan to stay and not return to Puerto Rico.”  Ms. Acosta states, “This is a storm of historical precedence and proportions not only in the devastation, but also in the opportunity.  Employers now have the opportunity to reach highly educated Puerto Ricans that in the past would not have taken their talent to the mainland, but now are forced to as the Puerto Rican economy has come to a standstill”.  Ms. Acosta added, “We will continue these efforts to support these displaced workers for the remainder of this year and into the 1st Quarter of 2018 and invite all displaced workers to visit our website and upload their resume and plan to attend these events to assist them in their job search”.  This effort by Latcareers.com follows other efforts by other prominent Latino organizations and celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Mark Anthony and Alex Rodriguez to raise awareness as well as support Puerto Ricans as they try to put their lives back together.

Latcareers.com to host 14th Annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair in Denver October 12, 2017

Amazon and many employers to recruit Bilingual and Diverse job seekers at annual career fair in Denver

The 14th annual Bilingual and Diversity Career Fair is set to take place in Denver, Colorado on October 12, 2017.  The event is hosted by leading bilingual and diversity job board and career fair company, Latcareers.com.  The annual niche career fair attracts hundreds of local career seekers and top employers from the business and Industry, government, Education and the non-profit sector.

Denver has one of the lowest jobless rates in the country at 2.4 percent vs. 4.3 percent nationally as updated by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment in June 2017.   With such a low unemployment rate, employers in all industries are struggling to reach career seekers and fill their open career opportunities.   One of the hardest labor pools to tap is Bilingual job seekers in the Denver area.  Bilingual career seekers are sought after and employers are providing strong career benefit packages to lure this hard to recruit talent.   Some employers are responding by increasing pay and offering sign on bonuses in order to recruit bilingual talent.

The small available labor pool in Denver reflects the potential strength of the local economy and also mirrors the challenges that employers are experiencing nationwide to recruit Bilingual career seekers.   With such a high demand for this niche talent pool, employers including Amazon, Liberty Mutual, Prudential, Walgreens and many others are partnering with Latcareers.com to recruit at our bilingual and diversity career fairs in Denver and nationwide.  “We strategically partner with our clients to execute their diversity employment strategies and to provide them a solution in recruiting Bilingual career seekers” states Rubicela Acosta, CEO Latcareers.com

Employers including Amazon, Walgreens, Federal Reserve, SR Originals, Aflac, Devry, Liberty Mutual, Verizon Wireless, Macy’s and many others will be recruiting at this event.  Career seekers are encouraged to register to attend the career fair and to dress for interviews and bring resumes with them to the event.   The career fair is free to all job seekers.  All job seekers are invited to attend.

To register career seekers must visit www.latcareers.com and upload their resume.

Amazing Teacher Jobs Growth are in Bilingual Education

Our world is evolving. Advances in technology are bringing the corners of the world together and we need bilingual teachers more than ever! Teacher jobs are focusing more on educators that are multi-lingual. Schools are recruiting a greater number of educators with multiple language skills, expanding the field of education to include a broader knowledge base and trying to bridge the gaps in communication that emerge when people from diverse cultures are trying to exchange ideas.

It has long been difficult to merge cultures in the classrooms because there were simply not enough teachers grounded in more than one culture. Technology has taken many families to foreign shores and they want to learn about their new home. Now schools had to address a growing, knowledge thirsty community of many lifestyles and they needed staff with the same. The search was on for a new generation of educators with a broader set of skills. The question now being asked more frequently is, “How do we meet the needs of so many with so few?”

Bilingual Spanish teacher jobs are in great demand these days. Latino populations in this country have been steadily rising, and children speaking more than one language in the house are becoming more prevalent. Schools have realized that having teachers knowledgeable about cultural diversity, from actually having lived it, would be a benefit to everyone.

The need for bilingual teachers was increasing and, here in the United States, students began to see ESL (English as Second Language) classes offered in higher education institutions and a surge in Bilingual teacher recruitment began to rise. The ability to offer a wider range of classes to a broader section of people helps schools to improve their student base and quality of instruction. Language immersion classes are also starting to proliferate, but without the teachers to pass along this knowledge, the number of offerings suffers.

Some countries are taking steps to bring talent to where they need it. Programs offered from many countries are asking people to travel and teach their native language! The Chinese government is recruiting foreign language teachers and offering living quarters and a stipend for them to come teach in China. I know a young man preparing for his teaching job in China, and he knows no Chinese. It was not a prerequisite that he know how to speak Chinese! They see the need for linguistic diversity! The nephew’s basic needs of shelter and food are no longer an issue and he only has to focus on teaching. This is only one example of the offerings that await a prospective educator willing to travel to teach.

A bilingual teacher has many exciting opportunities available these days. Schools are actively recruiting bilingual teachers, expanding their curriculum to accommodate the growing number of multi-lingual students and enticing educators from afar to travel in exchange for housing and expenses! If you have skills in more than one language and a desire to share that knowledge, you owe yourself a look at all possibilities.

Spanish/English – How Fluency in Two Languages Helps Your Career Bilingual Jobs -Spanish Jobs

Why should you put in the effort to perfect a second language? Being bilingual opens a ton of career opportunities for you! Jobs that require bilingual employees are growing at a rate faster than other jobs, no matter the field. Spanish is consistently one of the top three languages needed in bilingual careers.

There are multiple fields that want someone who can speak and write both Spanish and English fluently.

Medicine

Medical interpretation is a growing field. It is important for patients and their families to understand what is going on with their health and healthcare. Hospitals hire medical interpreters to help them understand; the medical vocabulary is specialized. Health care facilities also look for bilingual nurses, bilingual doctors, bilingual medical assistants, bilingual therapists, and support staff to help patients communicate about and understand their healthcare.

Banking

Bilingual employees are important in all areas of banking as well. They are needed for international banking services, as well as for individual customers who want to be able to discuss their finances with their bank. People seeking mortgages and loans are more likely to feel comfortable and to be able to trust banking facilities where they are able to do business in their primary language. The most common positions in need of bilinguals include bilingual customer service, bilingual loan officers, and bilingual sales executive and bilingual banking managers.

Customer Service

Bilingual employees are important in all types of customer service.  Customers who call their utility company need to be able to communicate clearly. Customers who call for tech support will seek out providers who have Spanish-speaking support staff. Cell phone providers, business sales, help lines, even just shopping at a store or going out to eat – customers will return to businesses that are able to speak their language, literally.   Bilingual customer service jobs are increasing.

Social Services

Hospital social workers, case managers, mental health workers, child protective workers, and agencies that provide access to support systems are in high need of bilingual employees. People who work in social services help and guide vulnerable people through some of the highest-stress life situations they experience. It is incredibly reassuring for the consumers to be able to speak the language they are most familiar with, instead of struggling to discuss already-overwhelming matters in an unfamiliar tongue.

Jobs that require bilingual employees are growing at a rate faster than other jobs, no matter the field. Law offices, industrial facilities, warehousing, construction, real estate, education, and web developers all are seeking employees who can communicate fluently in multiple languages.
