Future Career


I want to become an editor.

When I was high school students I start to think of having this professional career.

To begin with, since I was a little I really like read magazine and book. I often read a book in break time when I was elementary school student.

I especially like book with an illustration or photo, such as “Cotrip”.

By the way I have 5 cousins and one of my cousin entered the small production company , she likes read books too.

She liked liquor and published one book about the liquor in that company, then I read the book, It was very attractive for me, I wanted to publish some book too, If I publish my book maybe it is about my favorite Disney. So existence of my cousin is one of factors affect my decision.

On the other hand, I have had such an experience.

I do many SNS and I have the account of the Instagram , I often posted on Instagram many things.

This spring I posted a new product of Lindt which called “Hello chocolate” , then I got comment in this article from an editor. The contents of the comment is “This photo is really good, I want this photo on my article may I use it?” This comment makes me happy and I admitted it. If I can become an editor I want to use many pictures taken by me.

This episode also factors affect my decision.

Through these processes I think I want to become an editor.

About my future

I’m a second year university student, I have two more years before I graduate from Aoyama Gakuin Univercity.

But from the another point, I have only two years until graduation, and third year university students start job hunting activities.

So I think that I should look myself, I want to know my strength point and weak point for in two years maybe it is useful for job hunting activities.

I have something to want to become, I am interested in three field now.

First is the occupation of producing films or television shows, I feel a strong attraction to work in a TV station such as Nihon TV, Fuji TV and so on, Watching TV is a lot of fun for me.In this summer I took in Internship of Fuji TV, I listened to some TV director’s talk, the 1day internship was a very good experience.

Second is the occupation of editing of the magazine, I read a lot fashion magazine like a “nonno” and “cancam” fashion magazine is like a bible for girls. I want to edit these magazines.

Last one is that I work for Oriental land, this is one of my dream since I was child.

I crazy about Disney, so I would like to be involved in a job that has something to do with Disney.

I am not going to study in the Mater’s program at Aoyama Gakuin University also another university.

If I have a lot of money I want to study abroad, because I have experience studying abroad in Florida for three weeks when I was high school student, at the time I learned the fun of speaking English. That became a precious experience to me, so I want to study abroad again.

I want work somewhere in Japan, because I love Japan, so I think that I don’t want to leave Japan.

Lesson12:Business and English

Many people knows that” English is a world official language”.

In japan,there are large corporation such a Uniqlo and Sony corporation are decided that makes English as an internal official language.

In recent years the world accomplishes globalization rapidly,an overseas shop goes ashore one after another in Japan.In late years I see many foreigners in Japan,”Bakugai”of the Chinese traveler attracted attention in last year.

Accordingly, now we must be able to speak English, so English education of the elementary school advancestoo.

In additionbusiness is affected by globalization.As for Starbuck,Starbucks is one of the most global companies.First of all the place of Starbucks’s headquarter is Seattle in America. Starbucks is american company.

I think English is indispensable to succeed in Starbucks worldwide, because of I studied some business strategies, and there are need English, I explain that.

First strategy is “glocal” Starbucks search each culture and peculiarity, even if Starbucks doesn’t understand English,Starbucks can not perform a strategy in accord with a shop.

And I need brush up employees English ability. because when foreign people come to the store, if employees doesn’t understand English,maybe employees couldn’t offer good service and doesn’t give the Starbucks experience.”Starbucks experience”is one of the important Starbucks strategy.

Starbucks uses it mainly on coffee beans from Latin America,Of course English is necessary for the trade.

This is why, I think that business and english relation is very important,In the particularly global big company.










Lesson 11:Synthesis.

We decided to look for a  Starbucks’s unique strategy.

Through an  seven article about  Starbucks, then some common points were found.

The first strategy is “Glocal“. It’s means both local and global .Starbucks performed strategy  along each area,for exampleI read Singapore and an Indian thing.

One of the reason why Starbucks succeeds globally.

The next unique strategy “Third place”

First of all A home is the first place, and the workplace is said to be second place.

The meaning of the third place is between home and the workplace, It is the place that can regain a quality of oneself.

Starbucks wants to be such a place, so the sale of the coffee is to be only the means for becoming third place.

The space that can be relaxed,The atmosphere of the store becomes the important element.

Indirect lightingsoft and fluffy sofaBGM which can be spacious are the making of atmosphere.

Other strategy  is “Starbucks Experience”.

Starbucks is not only provide expensive a expensive beverage, but also provide high quality service for their customer.

For example, Starbucks unique service is write down customer’s name on drink cup.

People can experience drinking with good service at Starbucks, it is called “Starbucks Experience”.

From last article we learned about advertising.

How to use advertising of Starbucks.

Starbucks don’t use TV cm. It can be said that really unique strategy.

Starbucks use social media advertising instead.

It is produced a lot of profit at low cost.

The above mentioned items are Starbucks unique strategies.

That is synthesis about   we learned from seven articles about Starbucks.

We have been so much written about the “glocal “that have been touched often until now ,  but there is no about that, but instead written a little bit about the Starbucks of the negative image in this article.

I think  many figures in this article are  very  available. 

I think  if we found article about  the negative aspects of Starbucks like written this article, At a deeper content than our group can be presentation.

In addition , Starbucks has been found not to spend money on advertising costs , such as television and radio in the article . Or they are using to where the money , I want to examine and whether the employee education costs are.

I think that by all means want to use this article, because it very clearly necessary has been written.
