Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Here, have a job!

How many German speakers do you have on your books? Apparently it turns out speaking German can dramatically increase a candidate’s chances of landing a role.

Speaking German has come out on top of a list of most valuable second languages, as ranked by currency trader Forex Bonuses, as it opens up 265% more jobs compared to the average number of jobs available to bilingualists.

The next most valuable second languages were French, Russian, Arabic and Spanish.

So allons-y, pick your yazik of vybor, and lernen Sie eine neue Sprache. Answers on a Postkarte… [that’s enough random foreign words, Ed].
