The MLA has just developed a new and comprehensive website to assist doctoral students in languages and literatures to prepare for and secure employment in a variety of careers in professional fields outside of academia. The site is called Connected Academics. It includes a major page of resources, another full of career advice, and a Project Blog. I highly recommend you spend some time reviewing each of these pages. They contain a lot of excellent, concrete advice. Here's a brief statement from the MLA about the site:

Doctoral students in language and literature programs develop talents and complete training that qualify them for a wide range of career paths and professional opportunities. Graduates of doctoral programs that work to expand their students’ awareness of the spectrum of available careers will be better prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing higher education employment landscape. By supporting such programs and fostering collaboration and community involvement, Connected Academics hopes to serve the needs of those who pursue advanced degrees in the humanities and offer new possibilities for integrating the values of humanistic study into society.
