Spanish/English speaking jobs in Yokosuka? 2019/3/14 21:17
Good afternoon from the sunny Spain :)

My husband is in the US Navy. We are planning on getting married this winter and move to Yokosuka next year (he's already there). I'm worried about my career since I don't know if I would be able to get a job there.

I have a bachelor's degree in Translation and Interpreting (English and French language). I'm bilingual (English/Spanish) and now I'm finished my master's degree in Spanish as a foreign language. I have professional experience as a Spanish teacher, translator and translation project manager. Is it easy to get a job there with these diplomas?

Thank you very much in advance!

If you are in Japan on SOFA status, you are not allowed to work off base with that visa. Problem solved.

A lot of translators work just by emails, which allows the translator to work while temporarily traveling abroad. I wonder how it lawfully works for U.S. base families.

Not true.
They can work off base with just the SOFA status and approval from base officials.
The employer may not be familiar with that so they may face problems on that end.
