Adjusting to Japan is difficult : what I wish I knew before moving

Open the gates to a smooth transition and a rewarding journey overseas.

Working in Japan as a foreigner or giving up your career to follow love is a big transition. Adjusting is hard. And, luckily for me, I have change management skills (which I used extensively).

But still, you arrive in a country where you can’t speak, read, communicate efficiently, work expectations are different, and as a spouse, the labor market doesn’t want you (you’re not Japanese) and you’ve lost your social status.

New game, new rules, no guidelines, no friends.🤔

💡 Good news ! There are solutions!

1️⃣ Resilience and willingness to learn are key. Prepare yourself. If I’d known about the social challenges accompanying spouses face, I’d have been better prepared

2️⃣ 💻 Subscribe to our (free) webinars where Marie and I share our ups and downs and how we finally got back on track. Gain valuable insights and tips from experienced professionals who have been in your shoes.

3️⃣ Join the community we’re launching in May (online and offline) to connect with others like you. Follow us on LI to know more.
