Nov 24 2017 Mark (USA) Exploring New Heights at Japanese Drones Company
How hard/easy would you describe job hunting in Japan?
It’s about the same as in the US. (I’m an engineer, so perhaps different fields are harder or easier…)
How different would it have been without Active Connector?
I doubt that I would’ve found a job that I love. I probably would’ve had to settle for “just something to pay the bills”, which is what I’ve been doing for quite a few years.
How are you finding your new job? Any challenges/highlights?
So far, I love my new job. I’m working on a project that is interesting and challenging to me, and the other engineers are working on super-interesting stuff, too (like AI and machine learning). There’s room for me to grow and stay interested.
Would you recommend Active Connector to others? Why?
If you are an engineer or scientist (or similar), then yes I recommend Active Connector, because they have lots of positions for engineers and scientists.
What was the most helpful/positive feature about your experience with Active Connector?
Active Connector has jobs that I’m actually interested in. I’ve gone through Robert Walters before (and a couple others) and they’re always trying to talk me into some office-job building websites for some big, boring corporation. In
college, I didn’t study programming or building websites – I studied physics and math. I want to create new technology in an R&D environment. Active Connector is the only recruiter that I know of in Japan who got me interviews in real R&D environments. I want to be a real engineer, not some boring code-monkey.
