Does having another language under your belt help you become more competitive in job hunting?

I am currently studying another language and wanted to know if it really makes a difference when searching for a future career. #foreign-languages #language-skills

Yes! Shows adaptability, student mentality/willingness to learn and companies have clients that speak foriegn languages. If one can reach a wider audience this makes you more attractive to emploers.

Living in Texas? Most definitely! I'm in San Antonio, and cannot begin to tell you how many jobs I did not qualify for because I do not speak Spanish. Some jobs even pay you more if you are bilingual. I don't know about languages other than Spanish - I guess it depends on the job and location. I know Houston is much more multi-cultural than San Antonio. A second language is in high demand in the legal/law enforcement fields, as well as medical and customer service. What field are you considering? Kim
