Here are some ideas
If you are into telling what people to do and you also have a natural love for children and patience, you can become a language teacher in a school, whether it to teach English or a foreign language depending on your area of expertise. If you like teaching but you are not into children or secondary age students, you can try instructing or lecturing at college or university level. If you are a native speaker of a foreign language you can become an interpreter in different settings according to your interests or if you are more a detail oriented and less people oriented person with strong language skills, you can do some website translation Singapore.What qualifications do you need?
For some kinds of work like translating for companies, you may not need too many paper qualifications as long as you have the necessary skills to do your job efficiently. For some careers like teaching, you would need a good undergraduate or postgraduate degree and possibly a teaching qualification like a teaching diploma. If you are interested in teaching, it is a good idea to do a teaching diploma as soon as you graduate as it will give you more options and possibly a higher pay.
