How do I sell my General Bachelor of Arts to future employers?

Asked Brookings, South Dakota

I am studying both German and Spanish right now in university. I know that language abilities are helpful to a variety of jobs, but if an employer isn't hiring a job that specifically asks for language skills, how to I make myself still seem applicable?

Loren, First, congratulations on working on your language skills. Second, it is important to develop your professional interests if they lie outside of careers directly related to languages (teaching, translation, interpretations). Think about any skills that you have developed from internships, volunteering, or study abroad and how they might relate to your future jobs. If you have used your language skills outside of the classroom, use those stories to show how you can work in multicultural settings or overcome interpersonal barriers.
