Aug 22 2018 Workshop/Event manager and Career Advisor at diverse and growing "recruiting" company working to transform the way we work

About us:

Established in 2013, we are a growing company whose mission is to connect passionate young global talent with innovative companies in Japan. Our vision is to transform Japan and ensure that everyone will enjoy pursuing their passion within their work place.


Commonly held beliefs of homogeneity in Japanese society are perhaps best reflected in one of its oldest aphorisms “the nail that sticks out gets hammered in.”  As a result of this, many people, particularly those with an international background do not feel comfortable to express their uniqueness and their passion entirely – this is particularly evident in Japan’s work culture.


Our company believes that conforming to traditional systems, particularly in job-hunting in Japan (i.e. Shukatsu) limits fulfillment in the work place. By connecting global talent to Japan’s most innovative companies, we believe that these companies can become the models for other Japanese companies and individuals, and demonstrate how people can really live their passion in their work place. We want to show others that “to work is not a means to an end” but rather “to work itself is the end goal in achieving one’s passion”.


Our team is composed of highly motivated people, from various nationalities, with different cultural/educational/working background but with the collective ambition of building expertise within the human capital field, be it as sales manager, career consultant or others.


We embrace diversity and multiculturalism, and as such, we aspire to become a role model for companies in other industries too. We work on lot of “experiments” on how we can incorporate global trends in making the work place a better and fun place.
