Bilingual workers in demand

The part of the population where English is not the first language is growing by leaps and bounds.

How do you say "leaps and bounds" in Spanish? Or do you?

Virtually all job sectors value bilingual workers--health, marketing, construction, you name it.

One big place it's at a premium is bank teller. You also need to know different currencies.

Customer service is another huge area where second languages can pay off. You need to solve problems--easier to do if you are speaking a common tongue.

Also in the emotional area of social work--being able to explain and communicate is key.

If you know two languages--put it on your resume in a prominent place. Voila!
