Do you want to use your Spanish-language skills in your career? Four professionals share their experiences. This is a discussion for fluent or highly proficient Spanish speakers to learn about the opportunities and paths available in Spanish-language careers. We  hear from two people who work in Spanish-language media, a PhD candidate and literary translator and the senior vice president in member experience from a local credit union that focuses on Spanish-speaking populations. Watch and learn about the wide variety of jobs and opportunities available and how you could think about using your language skills in your career.
