Services for the Active or Passive Job-Seeker
"Sometimes we need someone to turn the flashlight on for us. Other times we need to turn it on for others."
- Lizzie Velasquez, author and motivational speaker
Your career is important to you, providing an income, stability, and a future. It is a means to grow and learn, a means to make a difference, and a means to fulfill your life goals. Whether you are currently unemployed or in a satisfying position, we can offer the following services:
Generally, we search for executives, managers and staff-level professionals in Japan, primarily in the Tokyo metropolitan business area. Our typical client is a foreign-headquartered company with a Japan branch office. Undertaking business activities in the Japan marketplace, such clients are usually in need of Japanese nationals with appropriate industry experience and who can communicate well in English.
If you need a job Now
We seek out professionals with strong communication skills in English and Japanese for permanent positions in Japan. Typically, we are requested by our clients to locate and introduce candidates for specific job openings, so we can not guarantee to find individual job hunters a new job.
After an initial and thorough consultation, however, we will be able to identify a few potential employers and then develop a recruitment relationship with them. An introduction will only take place after consulting with you and obtaining your consent to apply. If we are able to arrange an initial interview we will consult with you again about specific details related to that company's interviewing & hiring procedures.
Are you satisfied with your current position?
Timing is an important issue. While you may not be interested in considering a position at a different company at this time, outside circumstances may affect your job stability. Also, a truly attractive career opportunity may present itself. At that time, wouldn't you like to know you have choices?
With detailed knowledge of your background and interests, we can approach you periodically with specific job opportunity information that will help you plan your next career move. Talking to our consultants now is simply a small investment of your time.
We ask for a general CV to gain an initial understanding your background. We will also arrange for a personal or telephone consultation and use this information as a screening tool for appropriate job openings. If necessary, our consultants can help prepare a professional resume for specific positions that will highlight your relevant skills and experience.
All information and discussions will be kept confidential. If including a resume, please send it in MS Word format, or similar, in English. Please include a phone number where you may be reached. To contact us, please click here.
