Overview and Job Prospects

Better language skills often translate into better employment opportunities. Whether you are thinking of a career in journalism, business, fashion design or international economics, chances are that your work will require you either to travel abroad, or to interact with colleagues from abroad to work on international projects. The ability to speak another language will make you more interesting to potential employers, and your knowledge of a different language will make you a more culturally sensitive person, who in return will be more likely to engage in successful cross-cultural relations. Here are only some of the fields of work in which multilingualism is a strong asset:

  • Public Service
  • Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
  • Foreign Affairs and International Development
  • Education
  • Public and International Relations
  • Social Services
  • Journalism
  • Health Care
  • Advanced Studies and Graduate Training
