This article lists the best career opportunities you can aim for if you’re looking into immersing yourself in the language through a job. Wishing you a fun read.

4. Language Instructor. What can be a faster way of learning than to teach? Language tutors and instructors often spent more time studying the lessons they will teach more than the students who are in need of the lessons. In this case, not only can the language instructors learn more through preparation but can practice the use of the language as well, while sharing the language competencies to the students.

(A Sample job opportunity is in this link: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=Teacher)

Although teaching German to Non-native Germans or Japanese to Filipinos and Non-native speaker may sound difficult for a basic speaker, English-teaching jobs with a percentage of a foreign language are still available in the Philippines.

3. Customer Support. Extensive exposure to a language is the best and the fastest way of mastering a language. Talking to native speakers and dealing with their concerns on a daily basis, is the best kind of exposure you can get. Call center and support jobs can grant you this work scope.

Most of these roles which don’t really call for a native Language proficiency are available in the Philippines. Check out this link for the real-time list: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=Customer+Support&a=search

2.  Interpreter. If you’re a Non-native Language Speaker and is looking into improving your speaking skills the most, getting an interpreter job is the best step to achieving your goal. While most of the interpreter jobs in the Philippines are for part-time employment, there are still some which are looking for someone who can work for full-time.

Working as one, however, can immerse you to massive amounts of data,—both written and verbal, which can increase your chances of using your language at the maximum.

5 Tips to Stay Motivated while Studying a Language

Have you ever wondered how it felt when you learned to speak your first sentence as a kid? If yes, then try learning a new language and the feeling is the same. The achievement is priceless. It’ll feel like you literally opened a portal leading to a world, where not everybody can go.

Still, mastering another language isn’t an easy feat. Most often than not, those who pursue a language study gave up even before they got past the basic level of proficiency.

Experiencing shots of demotivation is a common dilemma. And getting past these is more notable than having none.

This article is made completely for this purpose,— to help you overcome the giving-up stage until you can successfully speak that first sentence in fluent and doubtless proficiency.  So scroll on and embrace these 5 tips to stay motivated while Learning a Second language.

5. Take a break. Every learner adapts to different learning styles. Vigorous and non-stop training is effective to some, while a slow and thorough study is perfect for others. Either way, taking varying shots of rest will amplify the effectivity of learning.

Having a break from time to time can give your system more room and time to take in the in-depth meaning of what you’ve studied.

4. Make a U-Turn. Studying your material in one-go may be fast. But it doesn’t always equate to effectivity. The pressure of having to finish your language study the soonest can even stress you out and can very much lead to quitting.

Selective Focus Photo of Man Using LaptopImage source: pexels.com

Before this happens, allow yourself to go back to your previous lessons. Achieving a stable proficiency at any point of your study is a big reminder that you’re progressing. An indication that you’re going somewhere is a big morale-booster. So practice applying your learnings in the past chapters for the written, listening and speaking aspect of the language. 

BONUS: At some point, going back to the reason why you took up the language in the first place, will also drag you towards the finish line.

3. Accelerate. Speeding up doesn’t always mean fast. Most frequently, speed conveys impact. Learning-wise, practices which can always bring the most impact to your learning is being immersed to the actual environment where the language is widely used.

When learning Japanese, don’t just focus on the books or your materials. Rather, take your study in a different setting, like watching anime, reading news in Japanese and talking to Japanese friends. Do the same for the language you’re taking up and the results can be guaranteed.

2. Gas up. A car can’t go anywhere without fuel. The same goes with anything and anybody.  Although saying ‘dont’ starve while you’re studying‘ may sound nice, the main point of this tip is not about what you physically eat but what you consume emotionally.

Take in what keeps you going. Do things which keeps you motivated in between your studies. Don’t completely remove yourself from your old hobbies, thinking such may distract you from your learning.

Talk to the people you love, read the books you love, watch the shows you love in complete proportion to the time you allocate to your learning. That way, you’ll not get too suffocated which always result to giving up.

1. Overtake. Travel through time, past all the materials and lessons you need to take and get a glimpse of what’s waiting for you once you successfully learned the language. You can always be motivated knowing that you’re working for something worth it.

All these, when paired with hard work, will always bring you past any kind of ‘I’m-giving-up’ stage.

5 Tips for Bilingual Job-Hunting in the Philippines

Are you a Bilingual Speaker who’s currently looking for a job? After the long Learning stage of acquiring a new language, it’s probably about time to put all that knowledge into something you’ll enjoy,—- a job perhaps, or something more established,— a career.

Here are 5 things you need to know before you get into the interview stage with the hope of nailing a job and putting your language to good use.

5. Make sure that you’re truly a Bilingual

First off, you must be certain that you can indeed read, write and speak the language in a level suitable for a business and work setting.

You can check your skills by taking online tests of proficiency which are readily available on the internet. Though results may not be accurate, it can lead you close to the real deal of you being a Bilingual.

Meanwhile, if you’re up for a more serious approach, you can always take up official Proficiency tests such as JLPT, TOPIK, HSK and IELTS. It might be a bit pricey but you can be assured that you’re investing in the right place.

 

4. Be honest about your Proficiency

While having a higher Language level gives you higher chances of getting hired, over-rating yourself can bring about high expectations to your interviewers, about you. They might assess you at a level you’re vaguely aware of, which can lead to a big-time interview or exam failure.

background,people,education,line,idea,student,pencil,friends,note,person,business,study,university,conference,modern,students,college,working,female,young,MRPR,

Just be confident.

Whatever language level you have, be honest and stick with it until the very end. Having a low language proficiency doesn’t mean no job is suitable for you. In this website, (http://jknetwork-jobs.com/) you can find lists of career opportunities which are open for language levels starting from Conversational to Advanced. 

3. Research the company you are applying for.

Preparation can always be the best weapon. Make sure to check the company and the position that you’re interested in or which have matched your profile. Prepare a spiel in your language which can answer a probable question: ‘What do you know about our company?’

business,people,education,man,line,happy,letterhead,meeting,note,person,businessman,corporate,job,success,teamwork,conference,learning,training,writing,working,MRPR,MRPR,MRPR,

Image source: freeqration.com

Also familiarize yourself to terms and words associated to the position or job that you’re applying for and try translating those to your language. This can save you during interviews as these new words can allow you to navigate your thoughts and ideas more confidently.

2. Be Confident.

Most job interviews always take into consideration a percentage of how a candidate handles himself, regardless of language proficiency. Make eye contact all the time. It is important to demonstrate your skills to the interviewer not only as a Bilingual professional but also as a competitive applicant.

Don’t forget to smile every time you answer the questions. It will give you an aura of confidence to the interviewer.

To be prepared, you can practice at home. In front of the mirror, you can talk to yourself as an interviewer. It may sound funny but it works. It will help you boost your confidence until you got rid of the jitters and the nerves

1. Follow up on your application.

Make a follow with the recruiter 24 hours – 48 hours after the interview. Show the company that you’re really interested in the position. If you have been told that you haven’t made it, ask them for honest feedback and the areas where you failed. You can have better use of it in the future.

フィリピンでの就活についての5つのアドバイス

 

あなたは就活中のバイリンガルスピーカーではないですか?他言語習得の長い学習を終えて、その学びを何かあなたが楽しめることに生かす時期なのかもしれません。たとえばそれは仕事かもしれないし、もっと確かなもの、、キャリアかもしれません。

職を得たい、自分の言語能力を生かしたいという希望をもってインタビューに臨む、その前に知っておくべき5つのことを紹介します。

 

5. あなたが本当にバイリンガルかどうかを知る

まずは、自分がビジネスで働くうえで十分な言語レベルで、読み書きができるか、話すことができるかを確かめなければなりません。

インターネットでチェックできる言語の実力テストをオンラインで受けることができ、結果がそこまで正確には出ないにしろ、自分がバイリンガルかどうかを見極める材料になります。

一方で、もしより正確な方法を望むなら、JLPTやTOPIK、HSK 、IELTSなどの言語の公式実力テストも受けることができます。受験料は少し高いけれど、公式のテストを受けることは自分に対する投資だと思えば安いものです。

 

4. 自分の言語の実力に正直になる

 

高い言語レベルを持っていれば、就職のチャンスも多くなりますが、自分自身を過大評価しすぎると、面接官のあなたへの期待もますます高まり、面接も長引き、試験にも失敗してしまう可能性があります。

自信を持ちましょう。自分の言語スキルがどのレベルでも、正直に、そして最後の最後まで一生懸命に取り組みましょう。言語レベルが低いということによって、あなたに合う仕事が全くないという事はありません。

このウェブサイトの中には (http://jknetwork-jobs.com/)「会話レベル」から「上級レベル」までの言語レベルを持つ人向けに、お仕事の案件がリスト化されています。

 

3. 応募する会社について調べる

準備をしておくことは、いつでも大きな武器になります。あなたの興味のある、もしくは自分の履歴書にマッチするような会社や、その職種については調べておくようにしてください。「弊社について知っていることは何ですか?」という質問にあなたの言葉で答えられるように準備しておいてください。

また、あなたが応募する仕事やポジションの専門用語や関連のある言葉を知っておくようにし、自分の言語で翻訳できるように練習しましょう。そうすることで、面接の際に、専門用語や新たに学んだ言葉を使って、自分の意見やアイデアを、自信をもって説明することが可能になります。

 

 2. 自信を持つ

多くの就職面接では、言語の実力に関わらず、応募者がどのように振舞うかを見ています。どんな時もアイコンタクトをしましょう。そうすることで、面接官に自分は単にバイリンガルというだけではなく、その他の優れたスキルがあるということをアピールできるので重要です。

また、質問に答えるときは常に笑顔でいることを忘れないでください。そうすると面接官には、あなたが自信たっぷりのオーラを醸し出しているように見えます。

準備しておくためには、家で練習をしましょう。鏡の前では、面接官に話しかけることができます。変に聞こえるかもしれないけれど、これが効くんです。震えや緊張を取り除くほどの自信がつくはずです。

 

 1. 応募案件のフォローアップをする

面接後24~48時間はリクルーターに連絡を取り続けましょう。会社にいかに自分がそのポジションに興味があるかアピールしましょう。もし、面接に落ちても、率直なフィードバックをもらうようにし、どの点で自分が面接に落ちたのかを知りましょう。そして次の面接で役立たせましょう。

これらのアドバイスはあなたの就活にきっと役に立つと思います。この記事のほかにも、あなたにはインターネットがあるし、これまでの経験も、そして努力をしてきたあなた自身がついていることを忘れないでください。

いつでも「自分」を信じましょう。すべてはうまくいきます。

5 Don’ts in Job-hunting this Rainy Season

It’s cold even when the fan and the AC unit are turned off.

Even through the high-volume TV and the shrieks of the kids playing in the living room, you can hear the endless pitter-patter of the rain on your ceiling. Yet, somewhat you feel at ease.

An aroma of ginger, chilli leaves and oil wafted from the kitchen. ‘It must be Tinola for lunch’, you thought. Despite the smell and the rising mumble from your tummy, you chose to stay in your bed and sleep for more until somebody wakes you up for a cup of warm tea. ‘It’s a good thing. I’m home’, you thought.

Image source: pexels.com

But what if it’s not the case? What if you have a job interview at 8:00 AM a few miles away from home? Or what if you have to take a final assessment for a job you badly wanted in the next hour? Or what if you’re jobless and is nearing the brink of bankruptcy?

You surely can’t enjoy lying around in bed despite the perfect rainy mood. No worries. We got you. Scroll on and see how these tips will guide you all throughout your job-hunting during this rainy season.

5. Don’t ever forget your umbrella. The most basic tip is, of course, getting equipped. No matter where you’re going or no matter how sunny the skies are,  don’t put in the hands of the fates your future of not getting wet right before a job interview.

Selective Focus Photography Of Woman Walking On Street While Holding UmbrellaImage source: pexels.com

Interviewers wouldn’t surely accept an ‘it’s raining’ excuse once you appear un-groomed. Though skill over appearances is a good belief, you surely can’t run from ‘first impressions last‘.

4. Don’t go out unprepared. While securing an umbrella can sound like the best preparation, this No. 4 tip will add more sense to the term ‘being prepared’.

Make sure that you’ve gone through google maps (many times),  surveying the location of your job interview or assessment. If you have a handful of extra time beforehand, it’s a whole lot better to check the site in person.

Rainy days can bring about a lot of unexpected congestion on roads and even public transport. Knowing two or more alternative routes headed to your interview site will work on your favor of arriving on time and on good terms.

3. Don’t rely on just the clothes on your body. Wearing your corporate attire is one of the fundamentals of job-hunting. It applies the same on all seasons. Yet a small splash of mud on your trousers or little specks of raindrops on your chest will make you wish someone made a law that you can wear casual clothes in interviews during the rainy season.

Worry not. You can always bring extra tops, or polo, or slacks and socks, neatly folded in your bag. Worst-case scenarios may occur, you can be assured that you have something in your bag, one pull away.

2. Don’t rely on any weather forecast. If you’re a Filipino or someone who had stayed in the Philippines for a while now, you probably will have an idea that the months of June to August are wet seasons. You’ll expect and un-expect rainy days in random, that you’ll probably tune in a lot on weather newscast.

A friendly tip here: Don’t rely too much on these forecasts and end up going unprepared. Always bring that bag of umbrella and extra suits with you, regardless of how the news mentioned that it’d be sunny the following day.

1. Don’t go hunting for jobs alone. You might be thinking that this no. 1 tip is for you to bring your friends. Well, that might sound like a good idea but we have a better suggestion; Go consult Head-hunting Firms for your Job hunting.

business,people,paper,man,idea,meeting,glass,person,communication,team,businessman,corporate,job,company,worker,teamwork,document,group,MRPRImage source: freeqration.com

Head-hunters are these private companies who are partnered with huge brands and corporations both in and out of the country. They are taking care of the job openings of the companies they’re connected with, which make them a pool of jobs (They usually have a range of 100 to 2000 job positions/openings).

Check out this one website which proves that you’ll get more chances of finding a suitable career-path once you seek for assistance from head-hunters. In almost 1,200 jobs that they got, surely five or more are waiting for you. (https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?q=&a=search)

Once you signed up with them, they will match your profile to as many jobs available in their records and will set you up, coach you and assist you in interviews or assessments and even lead you to the location of your schedules through the best and fastest routes, all for Free. If this may sound shady, don’t worry.  Head-hunting companies are deriving their incomes from their partner companies, thus you need not to have doubts on the Free-Assistance you can get.

Still, summing all these up, the best thing you can do is be aware of your surroundings despite the weather. Stay warm, dry and smart all the times, while you’re out hunting for jobs.

雨の季節の就職活動でやってはいけない5つのこと

 

扇風機やエアコンがついていなくても肌寒い季節。

リビングで大音量のテレビを見ていても、はたまた子供たちがそばで騒がしく遊んでいても、屋根を打つ雨の音が聞こえてくる、しかしなぜか落ち着くそんな季節。

〝お昼ご飯はTinola(チキンや魚のスープ)にちがいない″。生姜やチリを炒めた油の香りがキッチンからふわりと運ばれてくる。もうすでにおなかはぺこぺこなのに温かいお茶を入れてくれる誰かが起きてくるまで、もう少しベッドから出ないでおこうと決めた。〝ああいいな、家にいるって″、そう思うはずだ。

でもこんな風に家でリラックスできる状況じゃなかったら?もし、今日の朝8時からの面接のために、何キロも離れたオフィスまで行く必要があったら?もし、あと一時間で待ちに待った最終面接が始まるとしたら?もし、今仕事がなくて、いまにも破産しそうだったら?

本来なら幸せな雨の日のムードも、そんな状況だったら楽しめないに違いない。でも心配ご無用。私たちがいます。そんなあなたのために「雨の季節の就活」に役立つガイドを準備しています。スクロールして確認してみてください。

5.絶対に傘を忘れないこと

最も基本的なことは、もちろん雨に備えておくことです。どこに行くにも、どんなに空がきれいに晴れていても、絶対に面接前にびしょびしょになることは避けなければなりません。あなたのその傘を持つ手に、運命がかかっています。

 

4.準備なしで面接に臨まない

〝準備をしておくこと″は傘だけでは十分ではありません。

常にグーグルマップで自分の現在地を確認できるようにしておくこと、面接や試験の会場の場所を事前に把握しておくことが大事です。また現在自分がいる会場が本当に合っているかを確認することも重要です。

3.ただ服を着ているだけではダメ

ビズネスに適した服装のマナーは、就活の際にも大事なキーになります。季節関係なくピシッとしておかなければなりません。ズボンの裾に少し泥が飛んでいたり、少しでも肩が雨で濡れていたりすると、「雨の季節の面接にはピシッとした服装で臨む必要はないものとする」という法律の制定を望んでやまないような人に見られてしまいます。

簡単な事です。万が一雨にぬれてもいいように替えの上着やポロシャツ、スラックスや靴下を鞄に忍ばせていけばよいのです。

  1. 天気予報に頼ってはダメです。

もしあなたがフィリピン人で、またはフィリピンに長く住んでいるならきっとわかることだと思いますが、6月から8月は「ぬれる」季節です。予測できる雨もあれば、いきなり降ってくる雨もあり、ランダムに襲ってきます。毎日、天気予報を聞いている人もいるのではないでしょうか。ここでアドバイスですが、「天気予報を信用しすぎて、なにも準備しないで出かけることはないようにしましょう。」いくら天気予報が、「これから晴れの日が続きます。」といったとしても、常に鞄には傘を、また予備のスーツを入れておきましょう。

1.一人で就活しない

一番大事なアドバイスは、仕事を探している友達と一緒に就活をしよう、ということです。さらに付け加えるなら、友達を一緒に人材スカウト会社に就活について相談しよう、ということです。

人材スカウト会社は、有名な大企業やフィリピン国内外資本の企業などと提携しており、提携企業からの求人票を管理しています。(実際に100~2000件ほどの求人を抱えています。)

実際に下記のウェブサイトを見てみれば、人材スカウト会社が手厚いサポートしてくれ、あなたが希望するキャリア形成を手伝ってくれることがわかると思います。1200もの仕事が応募を待っています。(https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?q=&a=search)

登録が完了したらすぐに、スタッフがあなたのプロフィールにあった仕事の案件を紹介し、面接もセッティングしてくれます。また面接や試験の準備、面接会場の連絡や日程の調整なども「無料」でまた「最短のルートで」おこなってくれます。うさん臭いぞ、と思ったそこのあなた。だいじょうぶです。人材スカウト会社は提携している企業から契約金を得ているので、お仕事を探しているあなたは無料で就職のサポートを受けられます。

あたたかい格好をし、常に乾いた状態で、賢く仕事を見つけましょう。
