During the recession I decided to return back to school to get my bachelor's degree. Prior to earning my degree I started looking online to find a job and I started to notice that a lot of job postings state that one of the requirements is the necessity to speak Spanish. I have been looking for a two and a half years and I still haven't found a position. There are way too many job ads that say Spanish is a requirement and it is only getting worse. I would understand if I lived in Mexico but this is the United States where the primary language is supposed to be English. Prior to school I remember searching the same job boards and there wasn't so many that said Spanish as a requirement. So what happened all of the sudden? Think about it if a job board states you must speak Spanish and 100 people show up how many of those people are going to be Black, White, Asian, etc? How many are going to be Mexican? In the area that I live in it has become predominantly Mexican. This used to be pretty diverse and I used to wonder what happened but now I'm starting to see a trend. I wonder if the reason why there are so many Mexicans here is because of the fact that those that can't speak Spanish felt that they had to leave this community and go somewhere where they are not requiring being bilingual. (I am planning on moving to wherever I can get a job too). Now I know that many might think that this is about racism or politics but it's not. It's about equal opportunity. How equal is the opportunity if you have to speak Spanish in a place where the primary language is supposed to be English? It is still a recession and I am not bilingual I have a degree so what am I supposed to do?
I'm a recent college grad wanting to work in Human Resources. I don't have any previous experience in HR and I was wondering how do I go about learning the different software. I want to be able to put something on my resume that will make myself stand out. I've tried to look up classes or certifications for HRIS software, but I haven't found anything. What should I do?

I am a recent college graduate in engineering. I wasn't able to secure an internship during my school days. I wasn't a pro active job seeker while in college but rather focused on maintaining the GPA. After graduation, I have started applying and it's been 5 months since then with no job offers. I have been told that the longer it is from the graduation, the lesser your demand is gonna be. Is it true? I am getting worried and i think this gonna affect my job application procedure as I am hearing mixed opinions. I hope someone experienced could give me an answer. Thanks!
As a recent Graduate with a degree in Criminal Justice / Social Work, I am trying to figure out how to pursue a career with these two majors
Needing help to either continue with college courses or start looking... thank you for ideas
My question is how do employer's expect an individual in their last year of college or newly graduate have the 2-3 years expertise to work for their company? Graduates spend thousands of dollars each year and after graduation we expect to work in our field of expertise but when looking for a job many qualifications require 2-3 years experience. Can a reputable company please explain the tactic used and hire newly graduates please!!!!
