Industry veteran Carrie Fischer asks the question, “Why are we insisting on hiring people with at least three to five years of localization experience for positions that don’t necessarily require it?” She posits that welcoming bright and hardworking people with different experience, whether they are recent grads or career transitioners, can make a positive impact on the industry.
Everybody already knows that language services providers (LSPs) are growing rapidly, and like many industries today, there are more job openings in the localization industry than there are qualified people to fill them. We recently heard that there are two jobs for every unemployed person in the US. That alone carries a pretty big wow factor. Now, if only all those unemployed people had localization skills: production, engineering, sales. They’re needed everywhere.
