How the 'Babel Approach' was born...
One of the most rewarding things that have happened to me in the past year is the conception of Babel Profiles, a Recruitment Agency in El Born, in the centre of Barcelona. We recruit multilingual candidates for both national and international companies based in Spain. Barcelona has become an international hub for tourists, students and an ever-increasing range of adults looking for employment opportunities. The world as a whole is becoming globalized throughout its manners of business orientation, through technical innovations like the internet, management systems and the overall technical advancements of the 21st century . These advancements have also transferred into the development of a different type of candidate; a multilingual applicant that not only offers countless language opportunities to the job market but also a multitude of different cultures and values, which therefore translate differently in their abilities as employees. These same advancements are also the grounding behind our own interactions with our candidates. Out-dated communication methods with candidates should no longer be the focal point of a recruiters strategy. Social media and mobile communication systems are becoming the core of our overall recruitment strategy.
