Job Openings at Translation Services USA

There are ordinary translation agencies, and extraordinary ones. We think we belong to the later. Due to a rapid growth during these "troubled economic" times, we are in a continuous search for best candidates that can join our growing, vibrant and exciting company.
Against conventional wisdom, we don't require candidates to have "high level of education" and "high level of job experience". Just like Google.com and Amazon.com we believe that if a person is smart, we can teach him/her anything. Thus, our company has only entry-level types of jobs (internships) just to get a foot into our company. It will be up to you to do the rest. We offer good training program for in-house employees.
