"Having just started a new job at a law firm in Rochester, I can safely say that studying German at Canisius can help you find a job!  Although my job does not directly involve the use of German, it was an asset on my re-sume.  Numerous employees at my new job mentioned my German language skills or my German study abroad experience during my interviews.  It was a way to find common ground with my interviewers, but it was also a way to show that I am well rounded.  It gave me the opportunity to emphasize that I am willing to take on a challenge, and that I am not afraid to try new things.  All told, the study of German at Canisius is a wonderful experience in and of itself.  But, in such a difficult economy, it is important to note that it can also help you get a job."
