I'm in 12th grade, and I don't have a definite career choice yet. I just know that I would like to be fluent in Japanese and French, and that my career would be related to art and/or music. #graphic-design #video-games #photography #french #japanese #disney

Hi Leigh,
I was a French major and I worked for an international shipping company in Europe after college. It was fun to travel and see different parts of the world. My career since then has been in analytics and risk management so even though you may start in one field, your path may lead to another. It sounds like you have varied interests and talents so it may be a good idea to take classes in these areas before considering them as a major. This will help you really hone in on what is truly your passion versus an interest or hobby. I wish you all the best of luck in following your path!

The very short answer to your question is: "LOTS" :)
First of all languages are always good to have on your resume;. You can work with more people, you can live and work in more places, it means that you're smart and dedicated enough to learn a new language!
The workforce is always in need of creative minds, as technology gets better and better there are lots of tasks that we can delegate to computers but creative thinking isn't one of them
Finally, the more skills you have, the you are off. Companies don't look to hire people with a single skill at their disposal, we want folks that can think outside the box, that can teach others and grow themselves.
So to answer your initial question, here are some career possibilities of the top of my head: product/game design, marketing, translation, sales, arts and art preservation, education, engineering...

Well as a French teacher I will say study art France is the place to be, if not in France working with museums as a liaison. Japan too has a rich history. I don't know much about particular organizations or companies I do know it is crucial to be respectful and speak the language of your colleagues and Art abounds in both these countries. So whether it be preserving art or trading art or narrating about art, writing about art English, French and Japanese covers many possibilities.

I majored in French in undergrad and wasn't sure at the time whether i wanted to teach or do something different. I ended up getting a MA in translation, worked as a French to English translator and then switched to the business side of translation and currently work as a Producer/PM localizing video games into different languages.
