New York, NY, May 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The ability to speak Spanish is increasingly significant in today’s workplace and will help generate more career opportunities, given the growing Latino population in the U.S. According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center, Latinos will make up an estimated 30% of the U.S population by 2050. Based on figures published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), beginning from 2006 until 2016, bilingual teachers, registered nurses, and customer service representatives, are some of the most high-demanded jobs in the U.S. Most employers in these sectors actively seek employees who are bilingual in both English and Spanish.
“Due to an increase in demand for bilingual workers, many Spanish language schools are now offering programs specifically for those in professional fields such as healthcare and law enforcement, amongst others,” says Adriana Pons, one of the co-founders of Spanish Language Source. “Given today’s competitive labor market, as well as globalized economy, having Spanish language skills can really help you get ahead in the workplace. Learning Spanish can be an excellent career investment.”
Spanish is already the most popular foreign language taught in U.S secondary schools and universities. This trend is expected to continue, as the Latino population in the country continues to grow. Being able to speak Spanish is advantageous, and it is something which can be extremely valuable on a resume. A helpful first-step for those who wish to study Spanish is to gather information on Spanish schools and programs, and also e-Learning options, which can be easily done by visiting Spanish Language Source’s Website.
