Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Most employers, especially government branches or those with highly visible interpreter needs, look for workers with at least one to two years of experience, some many more. The employer may also be looking for more than just interpreting experience. For example, companies that hire interpreters in their customer service departments will also want to hire workers who have office/customer service experience. Interpreters in the health care setting will need to have experience working in the health care field. In general, the more responsibility associated with a particular job, the more experience that will be required.
