Event Title

P-18 Business and Plurilingualism: The Advantage of a Foreign Language in the Business Environment

Start Date

Description

The current global economy has implications that suggest the need for an adaptation in order to operate efficiently in this new environment. Is bilingualism a skill that professionals should be acquiring? To investigate this question, I am researching the frequency with which online job postings across three different business specialties (i.e., accounting, management and marketing) ask for language proficiency. My project seeks to answer the following questions: How often do job openings require bilingualism? Which states have a higher demand for bilingual candidates? And which languages are the most sought after?
