How Being Bilingual Can Boost Your Career
Whether you're fresh out of education or a seasoned executive, insiders agree that fluency in a second language can not only help you stand out among prospective employers, it can also open doors to opportunities that those without foreign language skills might miss.
In today's global economy, the ability to communicate is key, and as more companies expand internationally, the ability to communicate in another language has become a significant advantage in the workforce. Research from RosettaStone found that people who speak at least one foreign language have an average annual household income that's $10,000 higher than the household income of those who only speak English. And about 17 percent of those who speak at least one foreign language earn more than $100,000 a year. In a tough job market, it's smart to make yourself more valuable to your employer. As the country becomes more diverse, businesses are responding to a greater number of people, both employees and customers, who don't speak English. Learning another language may not be the easiest career-development move, but it may be among the most useful.
