Latin America 'increasingly offering labor migration opportunities'
Young professionals from the US are taking advantage of the jobs boom currently being seen in Latin America.

This is according to an article in the Financial Times, which suggests speakers of Spanish and Portuguese are moving to nations such as Mexico and Brazil because of the employment opportunities they offer.

Denise Sandoval, a Fulbright scholar and MBA graduate who works in Mexico City, told the news source: "Mexico and Brazil are the leading countries [in Latin America] and they offered more professional opportunities than I'd have had if I had stayed at home."

With growing graduate job opportunities in the region, the article suggests MBAs in particular are in demand, with many of the large international companies using recruitment agencies to hire staff.

Recent figures showed Brazil's unemployment rate has fallen to record lows following a rally in the economy in recent months, with joblessness standing at 6.7 per cent at the end of 2010, down from 8.1 per cent the previous year.
