The Japan Foundation, Toronto was pleased to play host to JETAA‘s annual Career Roundtable event, where professionals with experience living and working in Japan gave talks about their time in Japan, the lessons they learned, and how they were able to apply the knowledge and skills Japan offered them upon their re-entry to the Canadian job market.

Keynote speaker James Heron described his career path toward his current position as Executive Director of Toronto’s Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, and offered tips on networking within the Japanese community. Speakers Chi Diep from George Brown College’s School of Immigrant and Transitional Education, Duncan MacCallum of RBC Group Advantage, and Nicholas Custodio of Capitol Hill Day School in Washington D.C. explained the practical steps they took in their job hunts upon returning from Japan and how their years in Japan helped them to identify what the wanted– or didn’t want– to do as long-term careers.
