A decade ago, learning any foreign language was a hobby or an optional subject in college.

In the present scenario, it is all about acing over in the business or in the job market. With Indian companies like BT Mahindra, Bajaj, Amazon, Larsen and Toubro, and Tata going global, need for multilingual employees has increased.  Foreign languages like German, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish and French are gaining popularity.

Most of the language institutes these days train the employees of various companies. Many institutes also provide students placement opportunities. I had suggested one of my friend to get assistance from MoreVisas for a job search. He was proficient in reading, writing and speaking French. MoreVisas also provide Resume Advertising Service. They had prepared his resume in such a way that it has various sections, which include a section for work experience, education and volunteer experience which had increased his chances to secure a job. They had sent his resume to companies who might be interested in hiring international employees with expertise in French. The employers immediately contacted him, and he secured a job as a French coordinator in reputed organization.
