In the first talk of this series, you will learn to identify the marketable skills you have developed as a language expert and how you can communicate your experiences to future employers. We'll use different jobs at Duolingo as examples of the kinds of work that language experts do, including curriculum design, localization, language assessment, and communication. We'll talk about the qualifications and preparation needed for each role, how you can build up your resume, and how to network to find opportunities related to your interests.
