Hispanics’ share of the U.S. workforce continues to grow at a rapid pace. By 2024, Hispanics are expected to make up 20% of the labor force, up from 15% in 2011.

For many Latino immigrants, however, poor English-language proficiency, low educational levels and lack of college or professional credentials constitute major barriers to labor force participation and career advancement.

Our Employment Department offers an array of services for professional and semiprofessional job seekers. Job seekers have access to  recruiting sessions with top Atlanta employers and a robust job bank. We work closely with employers to understand what they are looking for in potential hires and to assist them in recruiting bilingual talent. Our annual Career Expo attracts hundreds of bilingual job seekers every year.
