What kind of career could I have with these majors or minors?

Hello, I'm currently a senior in high school and next year will be going to Michigan State University. Right now I have two major interests, Genetics and foreign languages, in particular German and French. So, if I were to major in Genomics then either major or minor in German, French, or linguistics what kind of jobs could I get? I had originally been thinking I would just get a career in Genetic research then just happen to know German, but never use it more than maybe studying abroad, but the more I study German the more I love it. Are there many careers or jobs, if any, open to where I would be able to utilize all of these skills? Okay, thanks. I suppose a question within this was whether or not there were realistic and successful jobs out there to where it would be worth double majoring.
