How did you find out about Active Connector?
How hard/easy would you describe job hunting in Japan?
Cannot be more difficult as a foreigner
How different would it have been without Active Connector
I would have literally left Japan
How are you finding your new job? Any challenges/highlights?
It’s very good.
Challenges are that I do not have experience of what I am doing now, which is also very good because I am learning every day.
Do you have any advice for other members of Active Connector who are job hunting?
Do not give up. Do not undervalue yourself.
Would you recommend Active Connector to others? Why?
I already recommended it to many friends who were doing job hunting.
Your company is really supporting those that are doing job hunting. I personally feel many HR agencies care more about their company clients.
What was the most helpful/positive feature about your experience with Active Connector?
Because the job does not fit my background perfectly (I never used the coding language they requires and I did not have any insurance-related experience), I the day before 1st round interview I got very panic. I sent an email to Active Connector said I was worrying that I might screw up the interview. Asami san and Kyoko san encouraged me. I got confidence from their words and passed the 1st round interview.
