I received the following message about a career forum being held in NYC on June 14th.
My name is Catherine Rackley of DISCO International
(aka CareerForum.net). I hope you don’t mind my
contacting you out of the blue, but as a fellow JET alumnus
(Shibayama, Chiba 2005-2006) I wanted to make some information
available to you and your JETAA Florida members about a job
fair for Japanese-English speakers that we will be holding
If you haven’t heard of our Career Forums before,
allow me to offer a brief explanation. We hold
them a few times a year in Japan and the U.S. and
on a smaller scale in Sydney and London. However,
our Boston Career Forum is our biggest event, spanning
three days and featuring over 200 companies.
These events are not just an excellent chance to
see what kind of job market is out there for Japanese
speakers, but above all a real opportunity to land
a job that makes use of both Japanese language and
a sincere interest in Japan. They are, of course,
completely free for job seekers to attend.
As I mentioned, our next event is coming up next
month and is already featuring some great companies
like Disney, Fujisankei Communcations, JTB (Travel)
and others with even more expected to sign up.
CAREER FORUM for Positions in the U.S.
Saturday, June 14, 11:00AM – 6:00PM
Metropolitan Pavilion, 2F (New York, NY)
If you would be so kind as to forward this
information on to your members, it would be
greatly appreciated. Please feel free to include
the information on your site’s job posting section
or Facebook page as well with my contact info included.
I truly hope that some members will be able to take
this opportunity to use their experience in Japan
and Japanese skills in their careers.
Please feel free to contact me if you
or any of your JETAA Florida members have
any questions at all.
