Job Seeker Advice in Japan From A Personalized Executive Search Agency


Selecting an Executive Search Firm

Size - If it is a one-man company or a group of one-man companies, you will not obtain the proper coverage of the Japan job market for potential opportunities. If too large a consulting firm, the quality level of consultants dramatically decreases as well as their level of professionalism. You become just another number and will not get the personalized attention you deserve. For optimum coverage, service and results we would recommend a firm with very low turn-over in their own staff and consisting of between ten to twenty seasoned consultants. You should always work with a professional organization for something as important as your career.
