    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

    Ep. 134 – The 2 Types of People that are MOST Successful in Japan

    This week as the last show of the year I go through what I think are the two types of people that are most successful in Japan, and what makes them so. I also explain just a few of the positive aspects of working in Japan, while of course not ignoring the negative aspects as well. Knowledge is Power.



     



    Have a great New Year and I'll see you in 2021.

    Ep. 131 – The Allure of Japan

    I started recording this week thinking I would talk about why I think Japan is so interesting to so many people around the world. I ended up doing that, but I also added a healthy dose of self-reflection on the importance of being happy with yourself, no matter what country you happen to be living in. Enjoy!

James is inspirational

This is Radrey, podcaster from Why Come Japan here. James first reached out to me to be on his show back in 2018. James always has good takes about life in Japan and is fun to follow on his social media. The guests are always of a wide variety which give his listeners a little something for everybody who is living in Japan. Especially good if you’re looking for a job.
