Job Opportunities for a Foreign Language Major [#permalink] New post 05 May 2010, 07:33
Hello,

I have a BA in German and a minor in Spanish, not really knowing what I wanted to do with that degree. I studied them mostly because I love languages and I wasn't really thinking about what I was going to do with that. I tried teaching for a year only to discover that I hate working with other people's kids (my own are just fine, though). I've thought about translating or going back to school. My question is: does anyone know of any specific companies that are looking to hire foreign language majors?

Opportunities are near endless - Spanish means you can do Emerging Market related work in the US, combined with German opens up most of Europe.

I would recommend looking at European schools for your MBA to best take advantage. INSEAD is pretty much set up for someone like yourself, especially as they encourage further language study.
