to everyone wondering why they want bi-lingual is because they can...right now..its the companies with the advantage because back in the day (pre-recession)...the employee had the upper hand because their were alot of jobs available and companies were f!ghting with each other for the candidates and the candidates actually had options...now in the recession or post-recession still...the companies get so many applicants that they can pick and choose who they want...they can under-pay, make requires that are ridiculous or very uncommon because they can..they want the most bang for their buck...say their was a customer service position available and me and u are the ones going for it...U got the experience and the degree but I can speak spanish really well...who u think they gonna take? they can train anybody..they cant always find someone who speaks spanish well

common dude, i understand what you trying to say but you keep forgetting there are about 250 million people who speak ENGLISH. if the company was selling directly to citizens in a foreign country then i can understand. i am not criticizing anyone but it gets frustrating when i see a job i know i can perform and not able to get it becuause i am not bilingual.
but u realize that mexicans/spanish people are the new hotspots for targeting in the US right? they are very loyal to companies/brands and they are targeting them big time now and its great to have someone to speak their natural language to them

yea i look black but im American :rolleyes:

but yea being able to speak Spanish has worked wonders here in LA. people are always surprised at meetings when they find out im the one thats bilingual. And ima be straight up. Sometimes when im doing workshops and s**t I'll understand like 90-95% because the Mexican accent i have trouble with sometimes. A lot of the agencies i work for have majority latino staff, so it's like why throw me the black guy in there?

i just think its a lack of skilled people. I teach financial education. i work in a field called a.sset development which is basically financial planning for people with low income. and there's just really not an abundance of bilingual people that can talk/explain financial topics in my field. i just happen to bring the right set of skills to the table. And its now become my niche....even though i feel more comfortable speaking English.

Language is a skill. Once you learn another language you also learn how to communicate, in general. your communication skills improve. your listening skills improve. many things you learn besides the language. if you can and you have the desire i would recommend it. we're in a global society. it pays to know how to communicate. it also opens up your network. opens up opportunities, etc.

and I look biracial but im black...

and i don't have a small mind unlike some of us, it's just crazy how a certain race comes in a takes over s**t where's the black men are still having problems..for instance im in the Army Reserves, i have my a.ssociate Degree, and a clean record still having a HARD a.ss time finding employment

What im gone end up doing is volunteering for a deployment then i'll be making over $4,000 a month...but once i do that then employers will want to hire me after the fact, like right now im tryin to work before christmas but it seems i wont til january which defeats the purpose

You quittn at the wrong time. Holiday season is the easiest time to get hired & even if seasonal that's still bread in your pockets. . .Some money is better than no money. . .
