Maybe, I don’t have an online profile. It is difficult for me to answer and to think about online profile because I’ve never heard this word, online profile, and I don’t know it at all.Therefore, I’ll try to image if I want to see people who is studying Japanese now. Of course, I write my name, my native place, and the distinction sex. In the past, most people wrote my sex in some papers. However, recently, I think that it doesn’t become normal. There are many kinds of people in the world. Therefore, everyone doesn’t necessarily have to write your sex on the online profile or in some papers. I’ll go back to the subject of online profile. In addition to, I want to write my hobbies, culture that I like the best in Japan and in the world. In this way, I think someone is interested in me when you saw my online profile and the chance is increased to talk with me in Japanese. To thinking from my position, if I found someone who match me in the point of hobbies or something that you like, maybe I think I’ll try to talk this person. From these, I haven’t written online profile, but it is important for us to write and see your online profile.

In task 1 question 3 ,the answer is False 'why?

Hello Masas,

The answer is false because David held two posts in Krunch Ltd. From 2017 to the present he has worked as a Digital Marketing Manager, but before that he worked as a Digital Marketing Executive, starting in 2014. Thus, he joined Krunch Ltd. in 2014, not 2017.

I think now its very important to have an online profile, because when we ask for job, all administrations or manufacturers demand it , but in same time, its so important to have a curriculum vitae prepared in our computer or phone, and to send it if some one ask about it. finally, if i have an online profil or curriculum vitae are two sides of the same coin, the most important for me to know how you can presenting yourself to others in this sammary.
