View topic - Japanese Proficiency Exam
Then in 93 I started taking Japanese class at my highschool. DId that for 4 years, with a 2 month summer exchange program in Japan. That was the first time I ever actually had to SPEAK Japanese, and it was a big shock, as my Japanese teacher (one of the old shcool language teachers) taught us to read and write, but didn:t focus too much on speaking.
No Japanese classes at my college forced me into a sabatical, but I attended 関西外国語大学 in my senior year for about 4 months. I graduated, started trying to keep Japanese on my own through a private tutor once a month until I got accepted on the JET program a year later.
I am currently about to end my 3rd year on the JET program, which means that I'm currently starting 就職活動 and looking for translation positions. I take classes around one or two times a week, and study about 3 hours a day (except when I'm being lazy). I've passed JLPT 2kyu, and hopefully will pass 1kyu this february.

The ones that I've noticed through online job search engines, don't really pay terribly well. 30,000 a year, roughly, on either side of the pacific.
