Opportunities in Foreign Language Careers.
Huebener, Theodore
This guide to careers requiring knowledge of a foreign language details a wide range of positions. It begins with a general survey of the field of foreign languages--historical background, need for trained personnel, attributes necessary for success, comments of business and professional people. Educational preparation in high school, college, and special training is outlined, followed by a chapter on finding a suitable job--applications, interviews, employment agencies, employment abroad, analyzing the job. A section on foreign trade covers advertising, export, salaries, and opportunities for women. One chapter surveys various vocations from airlines to architecture, banking, library work, scientific research, and translation. Opportunities in government service include Civil Service, Department of State, USIA, Voice of America, and the United Nations. The teaching profession is surveyed. Lists of recommended reading and of language associations and journals are included. (CHK)
