From teacher to recruiter to ??? by hoybruha in japanlife

I actually got my foot in as a referral from a friend. But if you don’t know anyone in recruiting, you can easily apply through job boards like gaijinpot. Turnover is extremely high across the industry, so a lot of agencies are always hiring.

I’m 28. I came to Japan from a small town thinking that I’d have access to better opportunities simply by being around more people who are already successful. Naive, I know.

I can’t help but feel like I wasted the better half of my 20s trying to made things that other people said I’d be good at work.

I have a lot to think about, as I’ve lost sight of what my passions are by trying to be like everyone else

Your comment is definitely one of the most helpful and honest, and I feel like you described me to a T. I’m honestly still trying to figure out what I actually want to do in life, as I feel like I lost a big chunk of myself while doing recruiting.

What kind of handmade gifts have you given your partner in the past? Perhaps I can bake something since he does have a sweet tooth ?
