When I applied for a job at PICnet I proudly listed that I am semi-fluent in German (please don’t ask my high school German teacher though; she might highlight the “semi” aspect of it). So, obviously when PICnet assigned me my first site to work on as a newly-hired project manager the site was in…Japanese.
I had the pleasure of working with the Hitachi Foundation to help launch a brand-new site that highlights how business practices can be applied to improve communities and create new economic opportunities. One of the exciting aspects of creating the site was that it really became two-in-one: one in English as well as one in Japanese.
It was a pleasure working with the Hitachi Foundation team as we launched PICnet’s first ever bi-lingual site. Now only one question remains: do I dare add to my resume that I’m semi-fluent in Japanese?
