The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

For example, companies can analyze how their product reputation is doing over time in comparison to the competition's products.

Spanish, Portugese, Russian, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish

To apply, students should have:

- Fluent English (in addition to one of the languages of interest)
