Multilingual Technical Analyst that develops projects to streamline processes and to improve operational efficiency.
I'm a linguaphile at heart as well. I double-majored in Spanish/French and double-minored in English/History and managed to land a job right out of college where they were willing to teach me everything I needed to know about the Information Technology field, but I lucked out with that. Most companies want you to already have skills in that subject, so honestly, I would recommend doing a double-major in Russian and Economics instead. A minor is nice, but a minor doesn't give you nearly enough experience for employers to take it seriously. It'll add to your course load, but it'll pay off when you graduate. Strong Skill + Fluency in a Global Language = Top Candidate. Even if you don't want to major in Economics, pair it with something strong, but fairly flexible like International Business and you'll be well on your way to being snapped up by employers.

This professional recommends the following next steps:
Check out your college's major requirements - How many credit hours do you need to complete a major in each? Are you transferring in dual-enrollment credits? This will help you see what program or program combination will work best for you.
