If you can read and understand another language, you’ll have a competitive edge when it comes to a career. For those of you who enjoy exploring new cultures and communicating, then a career based in languages could be ideal.

In such an interconnected world, professionals with speaking and writing skills in more than one language are highly regarded in many multinational companies, not-for-profit and aid organisations, and in foreign affairs and government departments.

Job opportunities include interpreter, translator, diplomat, ESL teacher, community worker and immigration worker, just to mention a few. Knowing at least one other language also makes good business sense if you want to engage in international business, or are in the tourism and hospitality industries.

Check out our language courses to find out how you can start using language to your advantage. We’ve also got a range of career resources and articles on how you can get there, and make the most of it.
