Kickstarting a Career in Languages

Sometimes it is difficult to understand how your life passions can relate to future career choices. It seems like there is something you like but you can't really find how these aspirations can be utilized in career planning. For example, we received many questions about how the love for languages can be used as a primary career direction. Obviously, many employers consider it a big plus if a candidate knows a foreign language. But what if you want your job is directly related to the knowledge of languages? Is there anything for those who do love foreign languages? Well, we decided to address the issue and explain how knowledge of different languages can become your primary skill at a job.

Let Your Language Journey Begin

multilingual-456774_960_720First of all, if you want your future career to be based on your knowledge of foreign languages you have to graduate from university with a respective diploma. Obviously, it will be extremely important what language you choose for your studies. The smart choice would be to go for one of the most spoken languages in the world. Chinese, Spanish, and English are considered the world's most spoken languages by the number of those whom we call native speakers. But you also should take into account your personal interests and so-called gut feeling. If you want to spend the rest of your life in South America then choosing Spanish would be a smart move. However, exploring the far east cultures would require the knowledge of Chinese. So choosing a language (languages) to learn is something you have to think about.

After you are done with education, you have the diploma and knowledge you can have some fun traveling. They say that knowledge of foreign languages is like a passport to the new world. You are free to explore the world by participating in volunteering campaigns in different countries, internships as well as just traveling for fun to gain the necessary experience. If you plan to connect your life to living in a foreign country, it is important to experience the culture and gain some practical skills abroad. Besides, learning about different countries from within will widen your horizons and help you land a job in the future. But what if you are ready to write your resume? What jobs can you apply for to utilize the knowledge of languages? If you like working with people inspiring others to learn foreign languages you should definitely try to become a foreign language teacher. It is a fascinating experience to help people with something you did yourself. The other option is to go for a translator career. It is most likely that this kind of job would be more suitable for those who love writing and prefer working at home or in the office. You don't have to go anywhere in this case and it is up to you where you want to work.

Thank you for the wonderful resume and layout. I am pleased with the work. My job search will kick into high gear in December so I will probably be using cover letter service then. Please add the gaduation date from Excel Technical college as 1998. Thank you so much.
