Compared to other countries, Japanese employees tend to continue working at the same companies longer.
Especially at traditional Japanese companies, there is a lifetime employment system in Japan.
It is a unique system.
Typical Japanese white-collar workers choose the companies which they work when they are junior or senior students.
There is also a unique system in Japan which is called “simultaneous recruiting of new graduates”.
University students often get a job offer one year ahead of graduation.
After starting working, the companies educate the employees.
Job-hopping is not common in Japan.
Thus, it is very important for Japanese students to choose the companies at job-hunting.
It changes the students’ life.
In my case, I resigned from the company after I had worked for 8 years.
It is rare in the company.
Only a few employees quit the company.
My bosses persuaded me not to quit.
But I strongly insisted quitting.
Finally, I could quit the company.
I’m really glad I have quit.
Because I’m free now.
