Knowledge of English will increase your competitiveness in the labor market

The Gloria recruiting agency provides high-quality selection services and carries out professional staff search in Kiev and the regions. To clarify, the selection and assessment of personnel is not the only activity of the agency. The staff of the enterprise conducts an active educational work, publishing posts and articles on the topic of recruiting. This publication talks about how knowledge of the English language enhances competitiveness in the labor market.
 
Let's start with the well-known facts. Today, proficiency in just one language limits growth in almost all aspects of professional life. Conversely, knowledge of other languages ​​provides many advantages and helps to achieve the most ambitious goals. It is not so important what task is set - the next step in the career ladder at a particular enterprise or an in-depth foreign personnel search. In Kiev, as in any other European capital, even knowledge of one foreign language represents a significant advantage over monolingual applicants.
 
Of course, we are not talking about minimal language training that provides basic knowledge (although, in some cases, it also plays a role), not about knowledge in the framework of the school curriculum. It implies a purposeful in-depth study of the English language with the aim of finding employment in a particular area.
 
Note, almost every self-respecting recruiting agency offers job seekers the opportunity to improve in this direction too. The fact is that the norm of international standards of the business sphere is an individual who is thinking and oriented towards professional self-improvement, who is capable of adapting both in the social and economic fields. At the same time, the priority ability for a specialist with foreign language competence is not at all the available list of linguistic knowledge, but the skills in using a foreign language to solve certain communicative problems in the course of social interaction.
 
Realizing the services of high-quality selection of employees, the recruitment agency Gloria regularly conducts opinion polls. The latter revealed the following regularity: the freer a specialist speaks foreign languages, the higher his career prospects. In most cases, it is a foreign language that helps and find a good job in companies with an excellent reputation, and then successfully move up the career ladder. It is important to understand that such companies strongly encourage their employees in their professional self-improvement.
 
Narrow specialization is distinguished by its linguistic nuances, and therefore during business communication, when attracting translators from the outside, sometimes there are some barriers that interfere with productive communication, making feedback difficult. In some cases, this is manifested in a banal distortion of the meaning of the terms, sometimes there are misunderstandings in the sense of information. As a result, contacts are lost, business is suffering ...
 
In fact, a good level of English, and even more so, multilingualism - these are unlimited opportunities for growth, both personal and professional. A potential employer, as well as one whose responsibilities include the selection and evaluation of personnel, always from among the mass of applicants choose the one who knows best English, and even more than a few foreign languages. The latter is especially relevant for multinational companies. Therefore, the conclusion suggests itself: even if the level of English is quite tolerable, for example, for international tourism, if you plan to reach certain heights in trade, business, academia, it is worth improving English and thinking about learning other languages.
