Interpreting as a Global Job Market

As the job market and economy has expanded on a global level, a job seeker's resume has become progressively more competitive. Next to a certain level of education and experience, fluency in a foreign language puts you on a "pedestal" for employers and business executives alike.

Although Chinese and Spanish are the most practicable languages in the current economy, Korean, Saudi, French, Russian, Italian, and German are all seen as vital in most fields. These contingencies typically arise in three fields; government, health care, and business. For example, the Central Intelligence Agency, along with other government agencies, has large plans to expand its language capacity. In health care, hospitals seek to hire multilingual individuals with an education in medicine. 

"We’re starting to see this real demand for employees with [second language] capacity so they can function in a corporate environment", says Mary Abbott, Director of Education of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, on the vast opportunity business professionals who are able to break language barriers can face.

Not only does the opportunity of being familiar with several languages appeal to job seekers, but also to those looking to expand their career opportunities. Large corporations are usually looking to send representatives abroad. Entrepreneurs

"I believe in the importance of learning a foreign language — it opened a new world to me, propelled my career as a foreign correspondent and helped me set up a business", says Prime Sarmiento, a marketing strategist.

According to Ryan McMunn, language expert and CEO of BRIC Language Systems, those entering the workforce this year with a second language fluency can expect an additional 10 to 15 percent pay increase. The average salary of language graduates is significantly higher than chemistry, engineering, math, and physics grads.

Learning a second language is simple with the efficient, certified, self-education systems available. There are several options for online learning, along with the more classic spin of textbook educating.
