I was recruited by an MLA recruiter I had worked with several times and known for many years. She’s the most well-respected recruiter in my market (Tokyo), so once I decided to transition to recruiting, there was no question as to which company to join.
I love connecting candidates with opportunities they didn’t even realize were possible.
Learning how little many candidates know about the market and their career options – so it’s really fun to provide that information that really everyone should have to make informed decisions.
Creating opportunities, learning, helping others
Establishing a relationship with a law firm in the US that is interested in hiring bengoshi (Japanese lawyers) to service their Japanese clients, because I’m excited to be able to offer that rare opportunity to candidates who have been asking for it.
If you love talking to people and hearing their stories, and you’re good at staying on top of lots of moving parts and following up, do it! You may end up happier than you were in your previous career. But you also have to accept that becoming a successful recruiter is a marathon, not a sprint.
