Career Opportunities in World Languages

Speaking two languages rather than just one has obvious practical benefits in an increasingly globalized world. Learning a second language has cognitive benefits, such as increased resistance to dementia and Alzheimer’s. Today, more than ever, it can be a serious asset to your career as well.  A report from the New American Economy has found that the demand for bilingual workers more than doubled from 2010 to 2015; and the need for employees who speak another language in addition to English has grown. The ability to speak Spanish, Arabic, or Chinese are among the most sought-after skills.

Here we've gathered the latest information and sites that can help you land the career of your dreams, using your world language skills.
