A Japanese PhD students got in touch about helping him to further his research:
My name is Takahiro Yokoyama from Queensland University of Technology in Australia. I am a Japanese PhD student who is investigating factors that influence job satisfaction of present and former Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) in Japan. Factors such as ALTs’ race, nationality, Japanese language learning experience, roles and responsibilities, and academic qualification are to be explored to see if any of these factors relate to their job satisfaction. For this study, I’m looking for potential participants (current and former ALTs, both JET and non-JET ALTs) who can complete an online survey. I would very much appreciate if you could help me by completing the survey.
The survey can be accessed at http://survey.qut.edu.au/f/179616/9b06/
The survey will only take a minute, so please fill it out and help Takahiro when you have the time!
