More and more Corporate America is realizing that they need qualified bilingual-bicultural cadidates with the sophistication to handle business affairs in English and Spanish.
Traditionally, Recruiters did not have to worry about testing candidates for language abilities. Historically companies trusted the recruiting agency to provide them with linguistically capable candidates.
All of that is rapidly changing and the proactive recruiting agencies are having their candidates tested for oral and written skills with the help of expert language services.
Do not get caught in the middle of a battle. Make sure your new hire has already been tested for language abilities. After all, it is the name of your company that is put to the test on the field. And many times there are no second chances.
