As 2020 is approaching fast, we know you’re scrolling through a lot of lists for the best place you can start anew, whether it be for travel, for study or even for work.

You might just be someone who wants a fresh breath of air away from the noisy Metro or someone who wants to explore a completely new environment. Either way, Cebu is the best pick for you. Scroll through this article to know why.

1. Career Opportunities.

A lot of companies have already branched out in the Philippines hence opening a thousand opportunities for everyone, more importantly, for Bilinguals. As of the moment, the biggest BPO centre in the world is in need of 80 Japanese Speakers to work in Cebu. The complete job details are right here: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?q=&a=search&p=10&jobnum=2019001800.

2. Cheaper Cost of Living.  

While the cost of basic commodities in the Philippines is generally cheaper, Cebu boasts an even more affordable cost of living compared to that in Metro Manila and other neighbouring cities.

Monthly rent of a fully furnished studio-type apartment with rooms and baths in Cebu costs around P7,000 to P12,000 while the same accommodation ranges from P18,000 to P25,000 a month in Makati, Taguig, Pasay and the cities around it. Meals can also be bought from P200 to P1000 from famous cuisines and restaurants which is equivalent to P500 to P1500  if purchased within NCR.

Otherwise, the final output will still depend on one’s lifestyle and preferences.

 

3. Attractive Tourist Destinations.

Do you love the sea and all the activities it can bring? How about the mountains and the adventure that comes with it? If yes, then Cebu is definitely your call. Nalusuan island, Oslob, Osmeña Peak and Malapascua are just a few spots which can grant you endless adventures with water and with the wild.

4. Accessible Commodities. 

If you don’t want to abandon the convenient life in the Metro, worry not. Cebu also houses the biggest establishments in the field of Medicine, Entertainment & Shopping, Education and more.

The biggest mall in the Philippines outside NCR is located in Cebu. The 2nd biggest international Airport in the country also sits in the city which makes it even easier for anyone to come and go.

5. Mouth-watering delicacies.

Cebu is well-known not only for the best Lechon in the world but also for several other delicacies. If you’re into discovering foreign tastes, the city is also filled with Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and even European restaurants with affordable meal packages. And let’s not forget Dried Mangoes, Hopia, Peanut Browas and appetite-inducing Masareal all available for a couple of dollars.

This list only includes the most important things which you’ll look into before relocating.  And the only way to exactly know how good of a place Cebu is, is to go pack your bags and start your move, now.

5 Things To Remember while job-hunting this Season

The Holiday season is officially around the corner. Nonetheless, we know there’s no stopping you from securing that job you really want. To keep you protected, well-equipped and at ease, check out this list for the things you need to remember while you go your way to start establishing your career during this cold season.

5. Keep yourself warm. The weather’s getting cold and the best way to guarantee a successful interview is to feel comfortable. Wear appropriate clothing or bring extra coats which can keep you cosy before and after the main event.

4. Prepare your tummy.  If you’re looking into skipping breakfast or lunch to rather grab a quick meal from a store before your tests or interview, please think twice. Almost all restaurants, food stalls and stores are filled with diners during this season. You might get stuck in that food store or might face the assessments on an empty stomach. This surely is the least that you’d want if you are looking into nailing your assessments.

3. Make your research. Check the location of your interview ahead of time. The roads will certainly get loaded as more and more shoppers are going out in preparation for the Holidays. With this, it would be best to have at least 2 to 3 alternative routes to the venue for you to arrive safe and early.

2. Check your things. Before setting off for your appointment, make it sure that you have your Identification cards, extra CV’s and cash with you. It would be a huge hassle if you realized you didn’t have your ID right when you’re about to enter the building and would be denied to do so.

1. Ask for help. Job-hunting isn’t always hard. Seeking help from the right batch of people would do you a huge favor.

Head-hunting companies, for example, have a huge network of job opportunities that you can choose from.  Check out this link for a sample of thousand job openings you might want to try out: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?q=&a=search

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.

5. Administrative Assistant. Administrative support jobs don’t usually require a high language proficiency. Yet being in one is a good exposure to the use of a foreign language. Someone’s reading and writing skills are often improved the most while working in the back office. 

For a long list of administrative jobs for Bilinguals, feel free to scroll through this link: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=back+office.

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

You may also try out this link: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=BPO&a=search

Most of the call center jobs in the Philippines today, cater to 50% English-speaking market and another 50% for a foreign-speaking market. (This percentage may vary depending on the client account, the company and the language proficiency of a Bilingual candidate)

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.

Scroll through this list to find Interpreter jobs and related opportunities in the Philippines:https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=Japanese+interpreter&a=search

Or try out this link https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=interpreter&a=search

People Gathering Inside RoomImage source: pexels.com

In this job, you’ll have all the luxury to practice your listening, speaking and vocabulary skills while being with a Native speaker most of the time.

1.  Data Analyst. A more complex way of learning a language through a job is being a Data Analyst. The language proficiency requirement for this role isn’t that high. 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.

People, Girls, Women, Students, Friends, Study, SchoolImage source: pixabay.com

In this list, are examples of career opportunities for Bilingual data analyst: https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?la=&l=&q=Data+analyst&a=search

Otherwise, if you’re looking into mastering a second language in a much faster pace, the best practice to include in this list is to never drop your lessons regardless of how busy you might become because of your job. Work hard and always look for the best ways which will complement your learning style.

To your fruitful learning ahead, cheers!

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.

Woman Using LaptopImage source: pexels.com

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.

Woman Riding a CarImage source: pexels.com

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.

You can check your fate career-wise. Real-time, this list displays over a thousand jobs for Bilinguals, surely one of these might be the perfect fit for you.  https://jknetwork-jobs.com/search?q=&a=search

You can also check the places you can travel freely once you already have the knowledge of the language. You can also learn about the friends and peers you can make and meet with that language skill.

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.

Image source: freeqration.com

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,

Image source: freeqration.com

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。
