A business interpreter certificate is a great thing for bilingual adults to take advantage of when pursuing a career in finance. Not only does it increase your clientele, but it bolsters your credibility to a wider demographic of clients. It shows that you are dedicated to continue becoming an expert in your field- to clients who do and don't speak English. It makes you a more knowledgable, and better qualified candidate to hiring managers who are already looking for candidates who are bilingual.
