Job hunters: target these opportunities

Long list of jobs below, plus career fair today

Good luck to everyone

The Hispanic Nashville Notebook hosts a job site called the Hispanic Nashville Workbook, but it is not the only Hispanic or bilingual employment listing in Middle Tennessee.

Latin Market Communications circulates a monthly job listing by e-mail. Many (but not all) of those jobs require bilingual language skills or are otherwise more attractive to the Hispanic job-seeker than opportunities in the general job market, but you can judge for yourself whether each job is for you.
