The Latino Advantage®, Mariela Dabbah and Arturo Poiré

Many positive innate traits shared by the majority of Latinos can be best exploited if one becomes aware of them. This is the premise of “The Latino Advantage®”. The more aware you are of your flexibility, ease in establishing loyal relationships, value system and other characteristics, and the more you learn about applying these characteristics to the American system, the greater your advantage will be.

Through this career oriented book, the authors offer numerous examples followed by exercises to help practice certain skills.

For instance, one of the traits the authors touch upon is having an informal communication style that can be used as an advantage in social situations. Latinos are good at responding spontaneously in such occasions. The disadvantage is that many times the Latino style may come across as too informal in a professional environment so, you need to learn how to manage that trait to prevent it from interfering with your career.

How to Get a Job in the U.S., Guide for Latinos
Cómo Conseguir Trabajo en los Estados Unidos, Guía Especial para Latinos

This practical guide is designed for Latino immigrants who grew up in Latin America and who are looking for a job in the US. It covers people both with or without a college degree.

Taking the Latino perspective into consideration, the book helps readers understand the codes and rules of the American job search process in order to succeed in their search.

For instance: in Latin America people generally write longer resumes which include information such as their age and marital status. These facts allow employers to openly discriminate against candidates.  In the US, resumes are much shorter and it is inappropriate to include information that can be used to discriminate.

Having interviewed experts throughout the country, the author offers concrete advice in  simple language that makes this book a very easy read.
