Mie’s Answer

Ashton,

Embracing multiple languages is like possessing a superpower that unlocks new and exciting experiences. Your talent is highly sought after in today's interconnected digital world. My own journey as a government linguist was incredibly fulfilling, encompassing a broad spectrum of applied linguistics, such as language analysis, computational linguistics, speech recognition, text-to-speech synthesis, and facilitating machine translation. I was fortunate to have been recruited into civil service immediately after graduate school, yet, like you, I often pondered about the diverse opportunities that the wider world might hold.

A quick online search for "linguist career options" led me to this informative website: https://www.neiu.edu/academics/college-ofartsandsciences/departments/linguistics/career-opportunities. It provides a glimpse into the myriad of ways your linguistic superpower can be utilized. It's a great starting point for your exploration. Enjoy the journey!

Best,
Mie
