what are some prospects for someone also fluent in (Canadian)French in addition to En - KR for a 21 year old guy looking to live and work in Quebec or maybe in Europe, i am currently pursuing studies in IT(will be completed next April) but i feel like i could do much a better and exiting job in this field than in any other fields.

Is there a big enough demand for FR-KR as well ?

Hi, There seems to be a shortage of KO experts here :( A similar question was asked below and didn't get an answer from anyone with KO in there combination. http://interpreting.info/questions/5024/korean-native-in-canada-studies-and-career-prospects

Well, I don't have Kr in my combination, but it would seem to me that En-Fr-Kr would be pretty good in the Canadian market. This would especially be the case if your En and Fr were A or B, in which case you could work in the official languages sector and have your Kr to fall back on for other multilingual contracts when needed. The vast majority of work in Canada is official languages and most federal government contracts are Ottawa-based, so that's important to keep in mind when choosing a place to live.

I don't know how much demand there is for Fr-Kr, but there is a colleague in Toronto who has Kr so you could always write to ask.
