Hi Kateryna! That is a great question. These might be some points for your consideration:

-Speaking multiple languages will widen your opportunities in most careers.
-It can also offer the opportunity to work in different countries and increase your employability.
-Nowadays, speaking multiple languages is a desirable skill that employers are looking for, especially in international companies. In the future, it might be a must so it is great that you are already thinking and preparing yourself for it.

Thank you! Gracias! Obrigado!

Aradenia’s Answer

Knowing more than one language is a useful skill for every professional. Still, I would say that it could be, like you say, extremely helpful in industries like health, education, and business.

Atul’s Answer

Assuming English is your native language, and if you want to have the fluency of other languages such as German, French, or Spanish. You have multiple choices assuming you are good at both languages.
1) You can be a technical writer for an international firm that is looking to translate from their native language to English or vice-versa.
2) You could teach the language.
3) You could be a translator for an international company to translate from a foreign language to English or vice-versa.
4) You can work at the UN.

Jaime’s Answer

Knowing multiple languages would be helpful in all industries as we live in a very culturally diverse world with a variety of backgrounds. Specifically companies with customers or operations in different countries. I've seen several job postings that actually require specific languages aside from English.

Laura’s Answer

I think it depends on the language you know and how well you know it. If you are a native speaker and know the grammar, you could go into my field - language training at the State Department or DOD. There are a number of small language schools in Northern Virginia who can hook you up with gigs. If you are a good speaker and like languages and travel, you might look into being a Foreign Service Officer for the State Department or USAID or a linguist or Foreign Area Officer in the military. You might also look into tourism, hotels, tour guides, or interpreter for courts or hospitals. There are many jobs for bilingual Spanish/English in many careers in the US. Just look.
