using languages learned in university

I have always enjoyed learning languages, and I'm studying two foreign languages in university.

I was just wondering if anyone here who studied languages in university ended up using them in their careers, or even just in every day life after graduating. I'm asking mostly because I know how easy it is to lose skills in a language if you don't have the opportunity to use the language regularly, and I am interested in how other people kept up their language abilities when their studies were finished.

Also, I'm just curious, if you had the opportunity to study Arabic, German, or Hebrew, which would you pick? and why? (I'm currently studying French and Arabic, but I have experience with German (intermediate) and Hebrew (very basic), and I am trying to decide whether I want to continue with Arabic next year, or revisit my studies of German or Hebrew. If I could take more than two languages at a time I would, but due to requirements for my major I can't)
