Where can I find open positions for translation professionals?
First, let’s take an opposite point of view: how can I make it so that PMs or others in the translation industry who might want to fill an open position can find me? The answer to this one’s pretty obvious: list yourself on LinkedIn, at Proz, at GTI, etc. State that you’re looking for a position and what kind of position you want, as well. You’d be surprised how many of the big corporations look to hire from those sites. Once you’ve done that, go the traditional route: look at job postings on translator sites, ask folks in your network to tell you about openings, find local translation agencies and see if they have listings, look at online websites, such as Monster.com or even classified websites like Craigslist.org.
