What Can I Do with a B.A. in Japanese Studies? (Shinpai Deshou) is looking for writers! Shinpai Deshou is a blog aimed at students of Japan Studies and related fields to provide resources and advice for their next steps after graduation as well as tools for language and cultural study. We are looking for new contributors, particularly to write posts about professional development, careers, and networking.

Ideally, we’d like to have 1-2 regular writers to contribute posts on a monthly basis, though a single article or series of articles would also be very welcome. In addition to writing about professional topics, we also would like posts on linguistic and cultural resources, language study, Japan-related blogs, fun links, book announcements, scholarship/funding opportunities, study abroad opportunities, and outreach events.

For example, I’ve written about working as a JET CIR, reviewed Japanese design blogs, and supplied posts on job openings and Fun Link Fridays. We’ve also done series on studying at the InterUniversity Center (IUC), finding a home stay, working as a JET ALT, and the job hunt. Some specific examples of topics we’d like to cover are Middlebury Summer Language Schools (after the campus move to Mills in 2009-), other language or postgrad programs, working in the travel industry or study abroad programs, and writing a rirekisho. If you have an idea for a topic not listed here, pitch it to me!

Thank you!

Leah Zoller
