E.U. - U.S. Dual Citizen here. What are some careers I can potentially do that take advantage of my dual citizenship and/or being bilingual or multilingual?

My parents are both Polish and I am a dual citizen of Poland and thus the E.U. I currently live in the U.S..
I do not know Polish or another language, but suppose I spend a few years learning Polish or another language while I finish college and thus become bi-lingual. I did learn Spanish in high school and could pick it up to be fluent in a year if I set myself that goal. I like learning languges, so I'm not adverse to learning more than one language.
What are some jobs I can possibly get being fluent in English and Polish (or another language) and having both citizenships? Jobs with American companies that do business with Europe or vis versa? Anyone have any specific examples? What fields would be good to go into in college? What would be a good college major to choose?
I have the option to study in Europe and gain more cultural understanding. I am familar with a lot of Polish culture through family and, even though I know it has changed dramatically, when I visited for 2 months in 1994.
I hear about people teaching English in Poland, is that something to look into or is the market flooded?
I still have to finish my undergrad (3-5 years) so what are some areas that have the potenial to grow in that time?
