If you’re currently living in Japan, here’s a way to make some extra cash by being a “research” (read: probably marketing) guinea-pig for some of the biggest companies in Japan, like NTT DoCoMo. They are looking for foreigners to give their opinions on things, it seems.
I love computers and gadgetry, so I’d like to try this for sure. Thanks to Yves for the heads up!
This is just a quick note to let you know about a hot new service
being provided by Hiragana Times that you – and your foreign friends
and colleagues – might be interested in signing up for.
Hiragana Times has recently launched a new service that provides
foreigners with opportunities to take part in research work for
Japanese companies. We have had a fantastic response from the foreign
community so far and more and more foreigners are signing up – and
earning themselves extra money.
Information about the service is shown below this e-mail. Please feel
free to register!
I would appreciate it if you could send this information around to
your foreign friends and colleagues, and encourage them to register
for our service.
Paid Research Opportunities for Foreigners
Hiragana Times, the well-known Japanese-English bilingual magazine,
has launched a new service that provides foreigners with opportunities
to take part in research work for Japanese companies.
Due to the fantastic response we have had from the foreign community
and the quality of work being carried out, Hiragana Times is receiving
more and more requests for foreigners to participate in research.
Some of the companies we have recently assisted include NTT DoCoMo,
Dentsu and Toshiba, and research has involved everything from in-house
testing of websites and mobile Internet platforms, to crash testing
Foreigners registering for our service include everyone from company
managers, Tokyo University students and software engineers, to Web
designers, teachers and housewives.
Of course, all work is paid (extra pocket money or cash for that
special weekend away!) and many foreign participants have been coming
back for more.
There are NO sign-up fees and registration takes only a few minutes.
