Between 1990 and 2012 the number of Hispanic owned businesses and Spanish speaking entrepreneurs has tripled. Comparably, the growth of non-Hispanic businesses is at 14%. This means that there is a high demand for bilingually proficient English-Spanish workers in all areas of the economy, lawyers, doctors, human resources etc. It is a fact that bilingual business professionals are getting hired much more quickly than mono-lingual candidates.
