Same here. In New York, it's an advantage to speak Russian when dealing with the public. Russian is commonly used, although I suspect many of those Russians speak English too.

I don't think it would necessarily help you find a job, but it may help you with a job you already have. Just last month I had to call a client in Mexico City and a secretary answered the phone who spoke no English at all. Instead of a lot of confusion and awkwardness I was able to reply to her questions in Spanish and politely (hopefully haha) ask for someone who spoke English.

My point is depending on your industry and location, it could be very helpful.

Who hires a secretary that doesn't speak English? Those Mexicans are locos... also proven by their tenelovelas!

With Feedback in capitals:
“Eso tambien depende donde vive. En Israel, veo muchos trabajos QUE REQUIEREN EL idioma ruso, a pesar de que el lenguaje ruso no es UN idioma oficial en Israel (solo hebreo, inglés y árabe son idiomas OFICIALES en Israel ). Por ejemplo, ES UNA ventaja grandE PARA enfermeras, DOCTORES, empleados del gobierno, y en esencia todos QUINES tienen tratos con turistas.

Aparte de eso, otro lenguaje siempre ve bien en UN CV (CURRICULUM).”

Valeria, let me know if you have questions ok? =)
Saludos!
