While we just covered the advantages of getting a job to cover the costs of learning the English language you might also want to consider what the advantages of your journey will be on a job you already had before you started learning.
In a globalized world that is growing more interconnected by the hour, knowing English is a key advantage, one that can get you a job or better yet, increase your current position in any big company or corporation. It shows that you are a better candidate at dealing with foreign customers while also showing that you have an active interest in improving your skills and your resume.
Get A Big Job And Reap The Rewards Of Your Work
So if you are about to start your English learning journey or if you are already studying the English language perhaps you should also consider getting a job in a large corporation. This can prove to be quite a strenuous undertaking but for people who are ambitious and really want to improve their career there is no better way of doing it.
To mix a new job and the English learning process you will definitely have to give up quite a big chunk of your free time and have a well-constructed and well managed schedule. Ideally you should choose a position that will be quickly improved by your English abilities like a translator or a tour guide.
In case you already had a job you should make sure you update your CV or even let your current boss know that you are learning or are have good English speaking skills. It might not immediately improve your position but it will make you the first choice in case someone with your expertise in needed. Depending on the company you work for, you might also be considered for a move in case a new office is opened in a foreign country.
Even If You Get A Better Position, Keep Evolving
You don’t necessarily have to wait until you are fluent in the language as numerous positions require only an intermediate level and decent communication skills. Make sure you don’t rest on your laurels if you ever get the job and keep improving your English knowledge until you reach a fluent or near fluent level.
You also make sure to adapt your English learning process to the requirements of your job. Let’s say for example that you work in the medical or tech field. You might want to include some specific lingo into your vocabulary lessons. This means learning terms that you will probably need to know in regards to your current or any possible future position.
You should also consider doing the same thing with a third or fourth language in case you find that you have an inclination for language learning and that the extra knowledge would benefit your career.
At the end of the day you need to consider if the effort is worth the possible gains or if you wouldn’t be better off dedicating your time to learning and pursue a job later. There is no right or wrong solution, only what works best for you.
