Foreign Languages and Your Career.
Bourgoin, Edward
Divided into two major parts, this book is intended to indicate careers in which people need foreign languages in their work and to provide suggestions and sources of further information for those who already have foreign language skills and those who are planning to acquire them. Part 1 discusses careers in which a foreign language is needed as a complement to other skills. The author covers the following fields: business, industry, and commerce; government and international organizations; education; library science; physical and social sciences; law; media; travel and tourism; and services. Part 2 deals with foreign language as primary skill and includes teaching, interpreting, and translating. The following lists are appended: related publications; agencies and organizations concerned with overseas teaching and research; sources of information on bilingual education and teaching of English to speakers of other languages; directors of education in U.S. territories and possessions; organizations utilizing health workers and social services volunteers abroad; professional associations of translators and interpreters; and schools and colleges offering courses in interpretation and translation.
