Radek, what jobs can you get with a Linguistics Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Linguistics Degree?

You might not find many job openings asking for a “linguistics degree” specifically, but you will find many employers looking for individuals who have completed academically rigorous degree programs, and linguistics fits that bill.
