To find employees who have a sales background and are fluent in Spanish, HomeBanc recruiters have become resourceful. HomeBanc has joined and now participates in such organizations as the Latin American Association of Atlanta, the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the National Society of Hispanic MBAs. All of these organizations, according to HomeBanc’s Stevens, are a rich resource since they not only have fluent Spanish speakers, but candidates with the required educational background and business skills needed. In addition, through membership, recruiters also have the ability to post job announcements in the organization’s newsletter.
