Strengthening office relations through language

入职三周后的一些小“抱怨” (Before and after: working in a Japanese company)

[This post is an essay submission by a guest writer in the company, ‘E.']

The author talked about her experience of doing job-hunting in Japan.
It was definitely not easy for a foreign student to getting an job offer here in Japan; it became even harder when she wanted to have a good work-life balance, rather than simply working for survival.
The author also mentioned how she got to know some small and middle scaled IT enterprises in Japan, and talked about her feelings on her first month working here at e-Jan, and about the culture shock that she received before and after joining a Japanese company.

[This post is an essay submission by a guest writer in the company, ‘Z.A.']

I had a get-away trip with my high school friends (who are now living in Japan) to Nikko, among them are some who have educational backgrounds or working experiences in Europe or the United States.
It was the very first time for most of us to have the chance to have a decent talk with each other since we graduated. As a person who has been staying in Japan for over 6 years, and has no working experience anywhere other than Japan, I am curious about how different the Western corporation culture can be, and how the Japanese one is observed or thought by people outside Japan.
