Finding a (Better) Job in Japan
April 15, 2017

“Teaching is a job that tries English speakers’ souls. The summer paato and the sunshine baito will, in this economy, shrink from the service of one’s wallet.” (with apologies to Thomas Paine)

Are you tired of being unemployed, or employed in a position that doesn’t utilize your strengths? If so, come listen to this panel discussion on job hunting in Japan.

Our panelists offer a refreshing alternative to the notion that the only jobs for foreigners are low-paying English teaching positions. A networking session will follow the discussion.
