When I think about my own career search and how my resume, experience, special skills and interests stack up against a similarly qualified candidate, I give a lot of thought to the question...what is going to set me apart? This is something a busy recruiter is also thinking about when they are looking through resumes or profiles of people they may (or may not) try and connect with. So, what does that look like for you? Being able to include business fluency in an additional language may very well give you the edge you need.
We are living in a global economy where the needs of the business you work in and for can shift and grow at a rapid pace. If you have the time, inclination and proclivity to learn another language and learn it well, then it is worthwhile. Good luck!
