LWC ISP student visits the Boston Career Fair
By Dakota Smith
The Boston Career Forum is an opportunity for Japanese-English bilinguals to meet with top industry professionals about potential future career opportunities. One of Lindsey Wilson College's own, Marie Kurata, was able to attend this forum and explore the rich history of Boston, Massachusetts herself. Below are a few questions Marie answered to tell us a little more about her trip:
Q: How was your trip?
A: It was awesome. I went to Boston for the first time. And there were so many sweet buildings. So I enjoyed walking around the city.
Q: What did you enjoy the most?
A: I went to Union Oyster House. It's the oldest restaurant in the USA. The taste was of course good, and I was impressed by the old (it means fashionable) atmosphere inside the store.
Q: What did you learn?
A: I learned the history of Boston. They have many historic churches and buildings, and the brick-like cityscape was wonderful. Among them, were urban elements such as buildings and they were in harmony. So I learned the unique atmosphere of mixing old and new history.
Q: What did you do?
A: This time, the most important purpose was job hunting in Boston. There was Boston Career Forum. There were many foreigners who want to work in Japan and Japanese who want to work in the United States. I was very tired from many interviews there, but I think I had a good time. And it was very meaningful because I had time to explore the city besides job hunting.
Q: How many interviews did you have to do?
A: I did maybe 3 or 4 interviews. But it depends on people. Some people do 5 and more per day. There do interviews in Japanese and English.
Marie Kurata is from Japan and is a junior at her university back home. She majors in Faculty of Global and Media Studies. In her spare time, Marie likes to perform concerts in her choir class and hang out with ISP members! Marie says, "ISP gives me a lot of fun and helps me in my daily life."
