Because the hiring
processes in America and Japan differ so greatly, it was difficult to know exactly where to start when I began searching for work in Tokyo. While there are job fairs for foreigners and
bilinguals, they can often feel impersonal. Fortunately, I eventually applied to a job online posted by Nisshin Global. After seeing my resume, Yoneyama-san directly introduced me to a
manufacturing company, based on my skills and their need for a native English speaker.
From start to finish, the
hiring process was extremely smooth. Yoneyama-san accompanied me to my first interview, where he gave the company a brief explanation of my skills and experience. I have never felt so
confident in an interview before, and thanks to Yoneyama-san’s coaching, I received a job offer from the company and decided to accept it.
Global was able to assist me in comparing job offers. For example, I was unfamiliar with the bonus system or housing reimbursement provided by many Japanese companies, and didn’t know to look
for them as part of the compensation package. Thanks to Nisshin Global’s counsel, I was able to select the best offer, which was the best personality fit as well.
After I was hired, Nisshin
Global’s consultation has been invaluable. Some other Americans in Japan had expressed doubts about my new job, warning me to “be careful” regarding business practices of some Japanese
companies. Though I felt the company that hired me was free from these practices, Yoneyama-san completely absolved my worries, and following the meeting, my relationship with my boss and my
team improved even more.
I have never felt more
fulfillment in my job than I do now, and I truly believe it is due to Nisshin Global’s personal touch. I recommend Nisshin Global because, unlike other career agents who recommend job
postings to you based off your resume in a rather impersonal manner, Nisshin Global Corporation takes your skills, personality, and career goals into account, and has an uncanny ability to
truly understand the needs of both the job-seeker and the future employer. If you have Japanese skills and would like to work in Japan, I cannot recommend Nisshin Global’s services more
