Testimonials, Working Jobs in Japan
Rachel From Canada:
Japan is truly terrific & there is lots of work, but don't come here unless you're truly interested in the people & culture. Many foreigners come here to make big money fast then take off to live on a beach in Thailand. They miss out on the best of Japan. I just fell in love with the wonderful people & my Lifestyle. My students, mostly University & business types, are my best friends & party buddies.
Peter from California:
The way to work in Japan is to get a visa with one school & free lance like crazy on the side. On the side I teach English at a corporation one evening a week followed by eating & drinking. I make crazy Yen there & have a terrific time. I also hooked up with a major Narration company for English announcements voice work. I make more from my freelancing then Visa job. Also Japanese women are Incredible.
Brenda From Australia:
You have to be willing to work hard, learn the language & moderate some behavior to succeed here. Japanese are very polite & dedicated to their tasks. Rude or lazy foreigners are not tolerated. You also need to adopt sufficiently to their culture so as not to appear like a bull in a china shop. They like that we're different but expect certain civic mindedness. The Food, Advanced trains, Onsens, Technology etc... are well beyond anything back home.
Tanner From USA:
I work in Japan as a Model, Actor, Narrator, Event Promo Presenter. You name it. I found more opportunities & less competition here then back home. There is definitely competition, just less. I also seem to find lots of misc jobs here to keep me in money. My main reason for staying is the excitement, work & Japanese people. All Talents should give it a Go. Why not, at least you see something new.
