Talroo Adds Spanish-Language Translation Feature


Talroo now offers Spanish-language translation for all positions on Jobs2Careers.com, its proprietary job board. The company made the move with an eye on the growing Hispanic community and the rising number of employers making the recruitment and hiring bilingual employees a priority.

Talroo said the U.S. Spanish-speaking population is second only to Mexico’s. More than 75% of Hispanic workers report using job search sites, the company said. Government figures show the number of Hispanic workers in the labor force stood at approximately 29 million in 2020. Projections indicate that figure will reach 35.9 million in 2030.

From 2018 to 2028, the share for Hispanic men is projected to increase from 9.9% to 11.7%, while the share for Hispanic women is projected to increase from 7.5% to 9.2%.

“Employers need to be in front of the right candidate at the right time, especially as we quickly head into Q4 seasonal holiday hiring,” said Talroo CEO Thad Price. That’s one reason many companies need to attract and recruit Spanish-speaking workers.

While in September the unemployment rate for Hispanics stood at a record low 3.8%, the number that could be deceiving, said Marketplace Business News. The reason: It doesn’t include workers who have dropped out of the workforce. And, when the economy begins to decline, experts say, Hispanic unemployment tends to spike higher and faster than the national average.
