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?
