Expanded Language Support Helps More People Get Jobs
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Indeed,
the world’s number one job site, today announced Spanish language
support for job seekers in the U.S., providing Spanish speaking job
seekers the same great experience English speakers enjoy.
The U.S. is estimated to be the world’s second largest Spanish-speaking
country after Mexico with over 40 million native speakers. Hispanics
represented 17 percent of the U.S. labor force in 2015, and are a
growing population, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
“Helping people get jobs also means increasing access for more people to
our powerful job search tools and offering them a great experience,”
said Donald Wysocki, senior product director at Indeed. “Supporting more
languages offers benefits to both job seekers and employers looking to
expand, diversify or further target their hiring efforts.”
Indeed has previously tracked nearly 1.5 million monthly U.S. job seeker
visits originating from Spanish language browsers with the most searches
coming from job seekers in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. Job searches
by title and location as well as job search results filters by salary,
type of employment (part-time, full-time, etc.) and company name are all
available now in Spanish.
Job ads posted by employers in English will not be translated into
Spanish. However, posting bilingual job ads on Indeed can be a hiring
advantage. Businesses can also now search Indeed
Resume and access Indeed’s
publisher program in Spanish.
Job seekers in the U.S. with their browser preferences set to Spanish
will be automatically defaulted to the Spanish language site. Indeed
also offers a homepage link enabling users to switch between English and
Spanish without having to change browser settings.
