7th August 2019

Come and listen to people who have learnt Japanese and have successfully utilized the language as part of their careers paths.

With strong trading ties between Japan and Australia, Japanese language skills will provide you with an edge in the workplace. There are so many industries in which Japanese language skills can prove to be a major advantage. Receive some valuable insights from those who have pursued fluency in the language, and utilised their Japanese skills across a number of industries.

A representative from the Consulate – General of Japan will also present information on next year’s JET Programme. The JET program is a Japanese Government initiative, and has provided the platform for hundreds of Queenslanders to work in Japan, and deepen their understanding of Japan.
Presentations will be followed by a chance to mingle and chat with all presenters afterwards.
