Jobs Using French (or other languages)
People often tell me that they love French and would like to find a job - any job - where they can use it, but aren't sure what kind of job that might be. When I was in high school, I was in a similar position: I was studying French and Spanish and I knew that I wanted to do some kind of work that involved language but didn't know what my options were. Here is an introduction to some of the jobs that languages can be used for, as well as links to further information and resources. Obviously this list is not exhaustive; it is just to give you an idea of what kinds of jobs your language skills might qualify you for and to help you find a starting place for your own research.
