    Ep.140 – Have More Fun

    This week is my last show. The show will continue (more on that next week!), but I won't be on it. Before you listen to this week's episode, I want you to know I am extremely grateful that you let me talk to you for as ever many episodes as you did. I couldn't keep doing it without you.



     



    (P.S. Got a few emails so I'm just going to leave this here. The following link is my ebook. You can buy it for $0.00, or more if you like. You are under no obligation to do so, but obviously I am extremely grateful to those that choose to support that way.)

    Thanks again, and as always, have more fun.

    Ep. 135 – The Job Hunt – Don’t Be Stupid

    Ep. 135 – The Job Hunt – Don’t Be Stupid

    This week I go over the classic mistakes that everyone makes when trying to get a job in Japan. These are literally common sense. I also go over why you need to do an On-demand Interview on jobsinjapan.com if you haven't already. Seriously. If you want to work in Japan and aren't currently, there is no reason for you not to have done so.



     



    The On-Demand Interview Page ->  On-Demand Interview



     



    As I annoyingly (for myself) promised, here are the previous interviews I've done with HR people (I'm sure I missed a few):



    * Thomas - JET to HR

    * John - JET to HR in a skiing resort

    * Cara - JET to HR

    * Philip - Dispatch Company HR 

    * Elliot - Resort HR in Niseko
