Silicon Valley – Where Else Would You Be?

Silicon Valley – Where Else Would You Be?

Consecutive or simultaneous interpretingThe one place in the world where anyone would give an arm or leg to live at is California’s Silicon Valley.

Renowned for being the start-up and high-tech infrastructure capital of the world, it is home to most of the iconic brands that represent the digital age. Silicon Valley hosts many Fortune 1000 companies such as Google, Facebook, Apple, Netflix, and Pixar, in addition to an overabundance of entrepreneurial start-up businesses.

Since most of these companies have a global footprint, Silicon Valley is an ideal city for translation, interpreting, and equipment services. China and Japan are the second and third largest economies in the world, thus, constituting an enormous market for Silicon Valley-based products and services. The region has a robust demand for qualified, professional, and Elite Chinese and Japanese translator and interpreter services.

Chinese and Japanese interpreters and translators who provide simultaneous and consecutive interpreting and certified document translation duties are finicky and selective when choosing companies and agencies. They value their abilities and do not want to jeopardize their reputations by partnering with substandard interpreting and translation companies.

Enthusiastic, ambitious, and motivated technology professionals from around the world securing a job in one of the leading-edge technology giants, in Silicon Valley, is the essence of acknowledged achievement. Silicon Valley, the stretch of land adjoining San Francisco, attracts intelligent and highly-skilled millennials from around the world fulfilling their career aspirations. Silicon Valley corporations, located in the famed San Francisco Bay Area, worship exceptional talent. The climate in Northern California is always terrific. The bright sunny days and cool evenings are perfect for shorts and a t-shirt, during the day, and jeans with a leather jacket at night. Boasting rights for residing in this area make others living in other parts of the U.S. jealous and envious.

The entrepreneurial culture, in Silicon Valley, is not the only thing that addresses it as such a unique place to live and work. Young overachievers seeking upscale career opportunities relinquish the security and stability of their jobs elsewhere and venture out on their own to Silicon Valley. The epicenter of forward-thinking, prosperous, and enriching employment is enticing other factors, too. Some, but not all of these factors, create an environment where the city propels ahead of the rest of the world. Silicon Valley is always vibrant, thriving, and kinetic with action, innovation, paradigm redefinition, discoveries, and fresh entrepreneurial superiority.

Silicon Valley is not for everyone. If you think the word “WORKAHOLIC” is terrible, the city may not be for you. As with anything that is advantageous, there are inherent disadvantages. All ventures have pros and cons to consider. The cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area is astronomical unless you are earning a high salary. You may have to make some sacrifices to live in this phenomenal city.

Job security and stability, in Silicon Valley, has its risks. Entering into an employment agreement with smaller, startup companies is risky because of the remarkably high failure rate of new businesses. Most startup companies fail within the first year and do not make a profit until three-years later. On the other hand, when you secure a job with a successful company, there is nowhere else in the world to live and work than Silicon Valley.
