What about language-specific vocations?Spanish degree graduates excel in a variety of satisfying careers, including:
Counseling/Social Services – There is a great need for bilingual counselors and social workers. Most of these positions require a master's degree in a human services field such as social work, counseling, mental health or psychology, although some positions require only a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Sales/Marketing – The change in demographics brings about the potential for new markets and new consumers. Desiring to tap into this market, advertisers, retailers and marketing researchers are desperate to find individuals who are familiar with the Latino community and fluent in both Spanish and English.
Medicine/Health Care – Many medical clinics and health centers are in need of bilingual doctors, nurses, office personnel and individuals who can translate, educate and handle patient complaints and concerns.
Education – Bilingual/ESL teachers and principals fluent in Spanish are in great demand. To teach, one will need a B.A. in the specific area in which he or she will be teaching plus classroom certification. Principals are typically required to have an advanced degree in Education or Educational Leadership.
American's changing demographics are also prompting new work opportunities in fields such as real estate, banking, Foreign Service, government, travel & tourism, law and ministry.
