I would probably want to find something new if the company I signed with change significantly. The environment is a huge reason why I enjoy it there. Everyone is really laid back and casual including even the CEO.(2016-06-13, 6:09 am)vix86 Wrote: Congrats to you again zx573!
I'll reiterate again to you TheVinster, you should check out some of the companies on paiza and google their name and check their careers page. You might not be a coder, but I've seen some companies looking for some management/project level positions. Always good to have a fall back.
Yes, congrats zx573. I'm definitely jealous. Will be seriously searching as of this weekend. I love the people I work with at my current job; however, I have goals and want to get there this year if possible (if not already have an offer in to transfer early 2017 like you).
And appreciate your words vix86. I will take another look and see what I dig up. My company was originally a startup and I think it will be a more accommodating environment for a foreigner such as myself. I also enjoyed the pace and lack of politics that I experienced personally at the startup I work at. Now that we've been acquired, the politics are creeping in which really ruins it for me. I'm just not happy anymore unless I see an opportunity at this company to eventually move to Japan.
Will do my best.
I wish there were more sites that were easy for foreigners to use for job searching. paiza isn't perfect but it at least offers tags such as "Skype interviews available" and "Native Japanese not required" which are what I searched by to find my job. paiza also made it really easy to bypass a lot of the formalities involved in the job search such as resumes and/or skill tests. The other choices like GaijinPot and such seem to be for established professionals with work experience and who already live in Japan, or English teachers.
At any rate, here's to hoping you can find a job this year as well TheVinster (and vix86! Still offering a beer for all of the help if you're in Tokyo sometime).
