Hello all,

I'm not sure if the following question I have about employee resumes
may or may not pertain to how your company uses them, but here goes...

Our company has 1-page resumes for all employees. The resumes are
usually included in various marketing, proposal, and business-related

It's a pretty standard format with the person's name, job title,
educational experience, any special license or certification, and
followed by a summary of their current work, and followed with their
previous work experience.

Now with the company rapidly expanding into the international
marketplace, a question arose about how to also indicate a person's
foreign language experience. For example, the resume could have ---
Language(s) Spanish and German

On the other hand -- and considering it's a 1-page resume -- just what
does this mean to a prospective client regarding the person's
proficiency with the language?

After this loonngg lead-in, my question is: If your company is involved
international work, does it include a mention on an employee's resume
about a foreign language? His or her level of proficiency?? Any

Thanks to all --
