In the current market scenario where the IT industry is expanding drastically, it’s not only the engineers or management graduates who drive the organization, for the globalization of any industry it’s always the native language experts who play a very integral part. The demand for IT experts in IT industry is enormous and it is met with the volume of engineers who graduate every year. But supply for foreign Language graduates are very less and industry is badly in need of it. We need to strongly agree that there are only very few handpicked universities in India for Language experts.
Predominantly languages are classified into 2 broad categories i.e. Asian Languages & European Languages. It depends on the organizations as in where they want to expand and what kind of volume which they want to build.
Foreign language skills make you interesting and attractive,
Knowing a foreign language shows that you are curious about other cultures or
that you have a connection to another culture. When your credentials are
identical to other candidates, having foreign language skills can help sway the
hiring manager in your direction.
We as Oracle deal with a key non-English speaking market, then hiring employees with knowledge of that language is useful and helps with understanding the needs of that market. With language learning comes cultural understanding, and cultural understanding can lead to business deals. A lot of industry experts recommend that a graduate must learn one foreign language to improve his/her market value.
We in Oracle hire a lot of foreign language experts for our various internal processes. All the language experts are exposed various domains like finance, sales, technologies etc; this will certainly help them to build their career in the right direction.
