If you want to increase your chances of a career abroad, one of the easiest ways is to learn foreign languages like French, Spanish, Mandarin and all other languages that are spoken by major populations. It is a fact that some of the sexiest and better paying jobs are often to be found abroad. Becoming multilingual means that you not only do you get to travel, you get to experience different cultures on a daily basis. One of the jobs that you can get is teaching a foreign language. Imagine, for example, if you were to learn French and Mandarin and then get a job teaching French in China. You would have enough time in during evenings, weekends and holidays to travel all over a land that is rich in so many different ways. What makes it such a great experience is that you are not just making great money; you are also getting to talk to these people in a language that they can understand and learning how they live.
Another great international career opportunity would be to work for a multinational company. They are excellent to work for; not only are you treated like an expatriate, you get to make money. Compared to your colleagues back in your country, you would be making a killing while at the same time travelling and exposing yourself to different cultures. This would also be nice if you have kids; they get to open their minds to the fact that there are ways of living that are different from their own and that is perfectly okay. The more languages you learn, the more countries you will get sent to. That means that you shouldn’t learn just one and then stop there because you are working in foreign country and making money. Learn more and allow your employer to send you to many different places.
Working within the EU has also become a great option for multilingual people. Many languages are spoken in the EU: Spanish, French, Dutch, German and so on. Being fluent in any of these languages means that you can get to work in any of the countries where they are spoken. Europe is a great destination that is almost impossible to explore completely. It will take years of an international career for you to see the great castles, to see Italian countryside and see how wine and cheese are made, to see Turkey and all its rich history, to see Greece and be reminded about its history with the gods. There is so much to see that you can hardly exhaust it all. The best you can do is get to learn as many of these languages as possible and then keep looking for new career opportunities in the EU area. You should be reminded that if you are working for the EU itself, you enjoy many perks that you wouldn’t otherwise get.
You are sexier when you are multilingual, but you are also well paid and well travelled. Start learning a new language today and transform your life.
