Practically anything! One of the many benefits of a language major is the
flexibility afforded to you. You can work in whatever areas you've gained experiences in while in
college through part-time jobs, internships, and student organizations.
If you are interested in working in hospitality, for example, you can major in Italian and complete hospitality courses
for your open
electives while also working a part-time job in the hospitality
industry. If you are interested in working for the government, you can begin as a volunteer in a government office, apply for City of Chicago internships
, and work part-time as an office assistant or desk receptionist for an alderman's office. Working on campus
in an administrative capacity can also provide you with excellent experiences in an office setting.
