How Being Bilingual Can Benefit Your Career


It is no secret that Canadian job seekers are facing one of the most competitive time in history. According to Statistics Canada, there are 1.5 million job hunters out there. With so many seekers for (relatively) few openings, employers can be extremely selective when choosing qualified candidates.


Many recent studies are demonstrating that being able to speak both official languages is proving to be very beneficial to Canadian job seekers at both private and public sectors.


If you are on the job market right now, French training you can get now or lessons you took as a kid may finally pay off.


L.A.P.E.C's language training programs can assist you to become a bilingual as well as provide an evidence having such credential in the form of an official certificate.
