Proficient In English And French - How Do You Handle That In Job Adverts? by Focusmind: 3:27pm On Sep 17, 2020
Hello People

Proficient in more foreign languages is becoming common now when it comes to highly competitive job market especially for jobs across the border. If you are interested in jobs with international agencies, it is likely that you may have come across the requirement: Applicants must be proficient in both English and French.

As a Consultant, I do come across some fantastic positions across Africa and around the world. Most times, a higher weighting is assigned to knowledge of foreign languages in the job advert. I lost a consultancy job I was interviewed because of my lack of knowledge of French with a development bank.

I now ask peeps: Do you pass by a job you are fully qualified but lacks proficiency in the second language requirement? Our understanding before was that proficiency in English language was enough for international jobs but the recent happening has proved to me that knowledge and proficiency in second language may be the advantage to secure that international job or consultancy. What do you think?
