Some US employers, including Walmart, Marriott, Home Depot, and others provide job applications in Spanish and encourage bilingual applicants to apply. If Spanish is your first language it may be easier to apply for a position in Spanish rather than in English. Here are tips for finding and completing Spanish job applications.

How to Find Spanish Job Applications

When you apply for a job in-person, ask the employer if their job application is available in Spanish. If it is, you will be able to use the Spanish language version of the application to apply.

Spanish job applications may also be available online, depending on the company. When applying for jobs online, check the Careers or Jobs section of the company website. If you are able to apply in Spanish it will be noted online. For example, Marriott job applicants can click on Haga clic aquí para solicitar en español to apply for employment opportunities in Spanish. Walmart applicants can click on en Español on Walmart's Local Jobs page to apply for a job in Spanish.

If available, you'll find the Spanish language online job application available either on the main employment page of the company website or after you search for jobs and begin the application process.

Information Required to Apply

Regardless of the language you use when you apply for a job, for US positions you will need to provide the following information as part of the job application process:

Personal Information:

Position Applied For Information:

  • Title of the job you are applying for
  • Hours/days available to work
