There are several jobs you can do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish; it all depends on your field of interest and previous experience. Several companies are seeking bilingual employees so this is definitely an added skill you have over other applicants. I have personally seen people take jobs within human resources, customer service positions, project management, information technology and other various roles. I would recommend searching jobs that are in your field of interest and see if any of them have Spanish as a requirement for the position.

Speaking a 2nd language is a great asset to have. Lots of companies are looking for that additional feature when hiring an employee for all types of roles. In some roles it is a requirement. Depending on your past experience and/or your desire to go into a specific area (customer service, sales, finance, human resources, etc.) that will help steer you in the right direction. On the other side you could go for a Spanish Tutor or Translation Work.
