What can I do with...

...a spanish degree?

Bienvenido, want to know what you can do with a Spanish degree? Here’s a handy tool to help you find out about your career options. 

Sectors

 

A modern language degree will provide you with a fantastic platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors. Sit back, relax and crack open a cold cerveza as you explore the job sectors below:

Skills

 

Your Spanish degree might not have taught you to whip up El Bulli-esque culinary delights, bullfight or dance the Flamenco, but it will have given you some excellent transferrable skills, such as:

Attention to Detail

You can spot a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can even spot a specific needle in a massive stack of needles. You’re just that sharp.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Critical Thinking

When you’re presented with a problem or idea, you have the ability to think about it from a critical perspective. You’re not afraid to share your opinion.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Language Skills

You will have (hopefully) the ability to speak, read and write in another language – more likely two, if you have studied a combined language degree.

Leadership

You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Negotiation

Articulate, methodical and composed, your negotiation skills are top-notch. You could even give Barry Obama a run for his money.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.
