What jobs are available to someone who majors in foreign language?
I'm thinking about majoring in foreign language, but I'm a little worried about what kind of job opportunities will be available to someone with this kind of major. What kind of jobs besides teaching are there for foreign language majors? Would it be better to major in something else, and maybe minor in the language that i'm interested in? Thanks for any advice.
