Dear Sweet Souls,
I hope you all had a very nice New Year Evening, and a great start to the new year 2018. Myself, I spent New Year Evening in Fukuoka, which is my husband’s hometown.
On the way to Fukuoka, we made a stop by Hiroshima, to visit the shrine, Itsukushima. The shrine which is built in the sea. It was absolutely a magical experience and I can recommend everybody to visit this place!
Job in Japan
Since I came to Japan in 2013, I have been struggling with finding a job I truly like. My latest job in Denmark, before I came to Japan, was in the fashion branch. I worked as a Sales Associate, and I really loved it!
I love to provide an outstanding customer service and make the client smile when they leave the shop.
I worked in a high-end fashion house, and before, I left, I received an excellent reference letter to show the employer in Japan. As I arrived in Japan, I contacted the same fashion house in Japan and asked for a transfer to Tokyo. Unfortunately, they couldn’t help me.
The main reason for not hiring me was that I was not able to speak fluently in Japanese (Japanese-Language Proficiency Test Level 1). I was so sad, because, I knew that it would really take a long time for me to get the Level 1 (Level 1 is the most difficult level).
After the meeting with this particular fashion house, I didn’t give up! I continued my job hunting.
After all searching, I always got the same answer; we need someone who is fluent in Japanese.
The message *This is happening FOR me* came up in my head. It made me smile and trusting that this situation is happening FOR my growth, support and evolution.
And it surely did.
After one year of job searching, I started to integrate more self-love/healing into my life. I created this blog and started to read and make more bread and cakes. I still continued to study Japanese (Which I LOVE).
Today, I am very grateful, that God/Universe gave me this chance to be more with ME, and care for ME.
Sweet soul, I would love to hear from you if you have any experiences with finding a job in Japan. Was it easy/difficult?
