Working In Japan Ettiquette

Hello again,
Its me Pieter deVries.

 So, you speak Japanese, you have wanted to work in Japan, and you are getting ready to send out or resume, or work history profile, but you have no idea what to do. Maybe you have written the profile, and you are getting ready to send it, but don't know what to write on the envelope.  Or, you are on your way to your first interview, and you don't know how many times to bow, or when to bow, or any other amount of important but easily overlooked things.  Well, take a look  at Hiwork.com.

 The site also has information that helps you find jobs and information about international job events. So, take a look at this bit of information that Hiwork at written about the correct way to write a job resume.

ふりがなの記入は「ふりがな」とあればひらがなで、「フリガナ」とあればカタカナで書きます

 As you can see, they have translated the resume and have given hints on what to do.

 In addition to this type of information they have a life support help section where you can find out how to help yourself while living in Japan.


Well, it is a pretty cool site, and if you are like me and have had a lot of trouble just doing normal things in Japan, it could be a great help! So give it a look.

This has been another post from Pieter deVries,
thanks for reading!
