Dear Hiruka,
A: I am assuming that your focus is on the arts and languages and have based , my research on this assumption.

With Globalization of the economy, our trade and commerce links are expanding day by day. Multinational companies are coming in local companies are going abroad for joint ventures. Because of this job opportunities for those having proficiency in foreign languages are on the upswing. Job demands in foreign languages like French, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Korean are very high because these facilitate international communication.

Career Prospects
Job prospects for foreign language students ranges from secretarial, executive and public relation assignments to translation and interpretation. Translators are employed with industrial houses, publishing houses, research institutes and government organizations and embassies of foreign countries.

Foreign Companies working are employing language experts. Best jobs for linguists lay in the tourism industry as tourist guides in the Dept of Tourism of and private tour and travel agencies. Hotels and airlines also require the services of persons proficient in foreign languages. Other job opportunities for a language specialist, exhibitions and fairs, export agencies and trade organizations. There are also ample opportunities for linguists as online content writer, technical translators and decoders. Academic qualifications in foreign languages helps in pursuing careers in the areas of entertainment, public relations and mass communication, diplomatic service, BPO's and KPO's.
