How To Enhance Your Career in Finance
Are you feeling like your career in finance isn’t going as well as you imagined? Then it may be time for you to make a change by learning a new language. It will open up opportunities in finance jobs that are not just exciting but that pay a lot better than you are earning now. Imagine, for example, if you were to learn Chinese. All indications show that China will be the next big thing in the global economy. Hong Kong is an up and coming economic capital. With knowledge of the Chinese language, all you need to do is look for a job in either mainland China or ion Hong Kong. These are exciting places not just to live but to travel. You will get to explore China and Hong Kong and even better, you have access to Japan, India, Russia and many other neighboring countries all of which are worth exploring.

Learn Chinese to get a job
You may be wondering how you would go around getting a job in a place like China or Hong Kong; there are numerous websites online that list hundreds and hundreds of jobs. All you have to do is type “finance jobs china” and your search engine will give you sites that you can explore for whatever kind of financial job you are interested in. Don’t forget that you have an advantage over the Chinese themselves because you speak English and they don’t.
Better job opportunities in Brazil
Another opportunity to advance your finance career would be to learn Portuguese. It is widely spoken in Brazil and if you were fluent, getting a job there wouldn’t be difficult. The country offers numerous job opportunities. In terms of economic strength, Brazil isn’t far behind China. It has a GDP of almost 3 trillion dollars. It will be hosting the World cup in 2014; during the last financial crisis, its banks remained strong. It has maintained a low rate of inflation over the years. It has very strong oil and coffee trade. All this translates to hundreds of thousands of jobs in the financial sector and one of them could be yours. Remember, you will be working in a foreign country and you will earn an expatriate salary. You will also get the opportunity to travel the whole of South America, get to meet and make friends and of course explore the Amazon and other places.
Take your career to Russia
Russia is also a possibility so long as you can learn Russian. If you do the same kind of online search that you did for China, you will see that there are hundreds of finance jobs. Just like with the Chinese, you have an advantage over the natives of the country because you are fluent in English.
If you already work for a company that has branches in any of these countries, you are already way ahead because you don’t have to find a job; you just have to learn the language and then ask to be transferred. It doesn’t take much to learn a new language. All you need is time and commitment and you can put the polish back on your finance career.
