Hottest job skill? Fluent in a foreign language

“If you are fluent in a foreign language, the future is looking brighter for you.

Among the top 15 fastest growing occupations in the nation, according to the Department of Labor, are translators and interpreters.

It predicts about 25,000 jobs will open up between 2010 and 2020.

And that doesn’t include the military, which is also actively recruiting more translators and interpreters.”

Languages do matter!
