Laurie’s Answer

Great question, Hunter! Learning another language is a valuable skill that can open doors to careers you may have never thought of! So many businesses work with companies all over the world and they are always looking for people with this skill. In fact, many job applications ask if you speak another language, so having this skill is a great way to get your foot in the door. It's great that you are looking to take advantage of classes that will help you learn another language, because this skill will make you very marketable in the future!

Amalya’s Answer

If you know a foreign language, many great career options become available to you. For instance, you can work at translation offices, embassies, educational institutions, touristic companies, and so on. So foreign language proficiency is a huge advantage! And if you study it professionally, the above-mentioned career paths are open in front of you.
I would like to add that job opportunities are also related to the foreign language you study. If you know Spanish as a foreign language, there is more likelihood to find a job in your field than having competence in a less spoken language.

Kim’s Answer

When I decided to major in Spanish at university, I thought the only career options would be in translation, working for the State Department, or continuing in academia. I learned that there are so many other options by joining clubs: I joined a Marketing club and built some international marketing experience. During the fall semester of my senior year in college, I found a job in brand marketing and 2 years in, I jumped roles in the company to the international marketing team. Since then, I've pivoted from international marketing to the diversity team and talent management. Understanding foreign languages, immigration policies, and different cultures has been immensely valuable in my role as a manager and building effective teams.
