When you list language skills on your resume, you need to be confident in your fluency. If you studied French for one semester in school, you shouldn't include it on your resume. On the other hand, if you spoke English and Spanish in your home for your entire life, consider sharing your skill with employers. Foreign language abilities are among the hirable traits or "hard skills" many employers seek.
Many hiring recruiters use ATS to source for resumes. ATS uses keyword technology to sift through thousands of job applicants for relevant results. As a jobseeker, when you include foreign language skills on your resume, focus on job opportunities that look for those skills. With jobs that don't require language skills, your resume may not garner as much attention.
