5 Ways Bilingualism Can Enhance Your Career [SlideShare] Posted by on Nov 10, 2014 in Language Learning, Trends

We live in a competitive world. Even though competition for jobs is at the lowest rate since 2008, the ugly truth seems to be that people are actually giving up on their search, skewing the statistics. Everyone is looking for ways to set themselves apart. Even high school students are acquiring internships at record high levels to gain experience.

So what can you do to set yourself apart? Have you considered learning a language? (And I mean a spoken language, not a programming language!)  Whether you’re preparing for the distant future, considering a change in career, or currently searching, bilingualism is a hot job skill (the hottest job skill, according to CNN Money). So, before you call me crazy or write it off as too difficult, check out the SlideShare below for 5 reasons why learning a language just might be the thing to do.
