Bilingual workers in demand
How do you say "leaps and bounds" in Spanish? Or do you?
Virtually all job sectors value bilingual workers--health, marketing, construction, you name it.
One big place it's at a premium is bank teller. You also need to know different currencies.
Customer service is another huge area where second languages can pay off. You need to solve problems--easier to do if you are speaking a common tongue.
Also in the emotional area of social work--being able to explain and communicate is key.
If you know two languages--put it on your resume in a prominent place. Voila!
