Alec Hansen 00

Alec took Japanese 101 to 402 and went to Japan through the AKP program during his junior year. He wrote his senior thesis in Japanese, but he had a little difficult time doing that. However, he was successful in getting a job. He got a position as a CIR in JET program and worked at a computer company near Nagoya for 3 years. (I met him in Nagoya once and we went to an “izakaya.” It was nice.) After finishing the contract, he came back to the U.S. and worked at a bank (I think). He wrote me that he took an exam for the governmental job, but he had another offer to work in Japan and took it. Unfortunately, he didn’t tell me if he passed the exam or not. I hope he did. <by Ofuji, 1-10-06>
