Recommendations for Job Postings in Japan


Rachel Aden Honolulu, HI

With my background in international policy and 7 years in Japan, I would like to know any recommendations for job postings that would be a good fit for me. I also have a background in Air Traffic Control. I would like to relocate to Japan. If there are currently postings, can you please provide an overview and recommendations for the application and hiring process?

Rachel - thank you for your service and best wishes as you navigate your journey to relocate back to Japan. One key you have contacts (Former colleagues, supervisors, friends, etc.) from your previous time in Japan that you could reconnect with through social media to see if they have any leads for you? Have you looked at the FAA sites to pursue any openings with them based on your past experience? You have a robust set of experiences so cast a wide net in your search and be confident it will have a successful result. All the best, Shelley
