Your grandpa’s time-tested method for securing your dream job in Japan.

In this podcast episode:

Marco and I after a hike up a mountain hill to a little onsen on the coast in OdawaraYou will hear from Marco, my former flatmate in Tokyo of 3+ years, university fraternity brother and friend. Marco knew ZERO Japanese when he arrived to Japan. Yet he was not only able to teach himself the language without taking any formal classes, he was able to work in several career fields in Japan.

Learn how Marco quit his job as a headhunter and before the next rent was due on our apartment, he was able to find a teaching job paying more than he had ever earned previously in his entire career using a simple but all too often forgotten technique.

It is a method your grandparents all knew about and their grandparents before them… we’ve been conditioned by society in the 21st century to abandon this simple time-tested method.

The Grandpa Method

by Martin | with Marco Ferreira

One interesting side note is that I first met Charlie through Marco. They were co-workers at an English teaching school in Fukuoka, Kyushu. Charlie came to visit us when Marco and I later lived in the same apartment complex in Yokohama. Charlie and I kept in touch and later started this website together.
