Call for articles from readers! Japanese Studies: 5-10-20

5-10-20Next year What can I do with a B.A. in Japanese Studies? is planning a series of periodic articles from guest writers entitled “Japanese Studies: 5-10-20.” Our aim to hear about the personal experiences of people at various stages of their post-Japanese Studies lives and share with readers the great diversity of paths possible for people who have embraced Japanese and Japanese Studies at one time or another.

Are you five or so years out of your degree and into the world? Roughly ten? Twenty or more? Where have your language and cultural skills taken you? What resources helped you? Did your studies bring you down a path that was unexpected? Academic? Business? Cultural? Even if you didn’t pursue Japanese itself, did the skills you learned along the way help you land a non-Japan related job?

We want to hear from you! As with all of our articles, the goal will be to offer advice and guidance to readers, expanding the available knowledge of what life is like with Japanese and Japanese studies under your belt.

If you think you might be interested in writing an article for us about your experiences, please email us at shinpai.deshou@gmail.com with an expression of interest by November 25th, 2013. We look forward to hearing from you!

    Just a reminder that we are still looking for volunteers for these articles! They will not actually go up until 2014, so there is plenty of time to meet a writing deadline. :) We’ve already had some fascinating people respond and we would love more! Tell your friends! Forward to your colleagues! We want to hear more from this fabulous Japanese-learning community!
