Are you interested in an internship and/or a job opportunity in Japan? Join us for the panel where we learn from our fellow students and experts on the job hunting for Japanese-English bilinguals. The talk will include topics such as job hunting, work, use of Japanese language at work, cross-cultural issues, challenges, and accomplishments. You can ask more questions at the talk, too!

The panelists from the first session (2-3 p.m.) are students and alumni of Japanese language classes at the University of Pennsylvania. The panelist from the second session (3-4 p.m.) is a recruiter for English-Japanese bilingual students. She will provide an overview and tips for job hunting. The panel is conducted in English. It is open to the public. The panel will be chaired by Tomoko Takami, Director of Japanese Language Program and Senior Lecturer in Foreign Languages.

This event is sponsored by the Center for East Asian Studies and the Japanese Language Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
