welp im off to get an easy car now~
Such great advice! Thanks Danny!
Resume keywords are way more important than resume formats. Because recruiters conduct keyword searches during the initial sourcing process in Applicant Tracking Systems. You're not found if your resume doesn't contain the exact keywords. But it's a pain to find those keywords from the job descriptions.
I found the site http://www.jobscan.co is a great place to identify keywords for your resume. All you do is paste in your resume plus the job description, then Jobscan analyzes your job description for you automatically and identify the most important keywords for you.
It literally takes seconds and it so worth the copy and paste. Saved me so much time AND I got more interviews using Jobscan! I recommend it as well.
不過我是先看到 Danny Choo 的創業心路，才知道cj和未來的XD
hey danny, any chance that people not going to FF26 can get one? I won't be in Taipei for this weekend, but I really want one.
how i get in malaysia
兩個筆誤 *正式合作 *用於搭乘
續馬來西亞的Touch n Go（一触即通卡）之後，我很榮幸能向大家宣佈 —— 吉祥人物末永未來與台灣悠遊卡正是合作，推出了末永未來主題悠遊卡。
這批卡的生產成本較高，因此零售價也偏高 —— 一張500新台幣，兩張900新台幣。
有興趣的朋友可以在本月29至30日舉行的開拓動漫祭 26上前來我們的展位購買。這次的展位將助理推廣“末永未來”，因為“末永未來”在台灣比“CULTURE JAPAN”更具影響力。
Sweet looking Kanu figure.
Bet she costs a fortune on eBay.
Ridge Racer was such a disappointment. Considering the rich history of the series, the way they messed up the PS Vita version makes no sense. It does look very pretty but yeah, very little substance :(
Now that's just genius :)
I'd be too paranoid that the zipper would scratch the screen :(
White PS Vita? Nice!!
EDIT: Google map showing the address would be sweet :)
Cool, I'll drop by. What is the location of F26? Would be good to have it in the post :)
One thing -- in Taiwan, usually, people don't write "$500", but write "500 元" or "台幣 500 元"; I would go with the former one. It will make it look much more local and make customers happy, or at least it works on our business ;)
Cheers, hope to see you there
Replica of your company? Need more ecchi figure.
Danny.....I seriously need your help then, please.
Can you help me get my resume ready for Japan then? Please...
I would be willing to send it to you, so you can help me. I am getting my BA in Criminal Justice in December 2015, but I I want to move to Japan and I know the only job I could do there to begin with is English. So, I would like to have my Resume ready to apply for Jobs in Japan. Arigatou Gozaimasu!
Got a question. Where do you get those trash cans that are in the video? I would definitely need those when I go to move to Japan.
Arigatou Gozaimasu! This video is a great help.
the stand will be two days or only the first day?
I mostly love staying home and watching anime or reading manga. Aside from this, I also like travel, languages, pâtisserie, bicycling, chocolate, music, cooking, sake, arts, literature, DJ'ing, technology and martial arts.
Even though I see scenes like this every day in NHK news, seeing the before and after photos together gives a much more complete view of the true extent of the damage. Seeing what has happened to beautiful Miyagi Prefecture makes me cry. (ToT) I will be going to Ishinomaki in 3 weeks to do some volunteer work before my up-coming business trip in Tokyo. I am very much looking forward to having to opportunity to contribute to the relief efforts directly. 頑張って未来へ向く事しかないね。
Ooooh! I was there last June! I had such a nice time!! It's really a very nice place. Only Danny would be allowed to take photos in there. Amazing.
What's even better is that I met the girl that is serving the omurice and parfait to you, Danny! I happened to be leaving at the same time as she was finishing her shift. I guess American customers are a little bit rare in there so she decided to talk to me for a minute. When she came up to me in Don Quixote, I almost didn't recognize her without her make-up and uniform!
I hope to go back there again some time. Moe-moe *kyun*!
Thank you! I will do my best!
Hey Danny. I just went back and re-read the "Pursue Your Passion" post after reading this one. When I first started reading your blog nearly 3 years ago, you were already working to deliver this message to us and making it stick. You would have no way of knowing this, but receiving this message from your dc.com posts played an important part in changing my path and getting me moving toward the exit of my comfort zone. Sure enough, I started lying to myself about my career about 11 years ago (long time, right!?). It turns out I'm not really all that interested in software engineering. What I'm passionate about is Japanese language and culture. As a software engineer, I make a *very* comfortable living and rarely find myself in want or need of anything material. I can't say the same for my soul, however, which is often starving.
About 2 years ago, I finally got serious about studying Japanese and although I often work 50 - 60 hours per week (sometimes much more) at the company where I work, I still manage to find between 1 and 5 hours *every* weekday for studying Nihongo (sometimes more than that on the weekends). This December I plan on passing the JLPT N3. Next year I will definitely take N2. I know that as a translator, editor, researcher, etc. I'll never make the same salary as I do in the software business, but I will certainly be happier following my passion, and I'll have many more opportunities to live and work in Japan with strong language skills at my fingertips (or... tongue-tip?). Perhaps new opportunities that I've never even considered will open up from there.
Part of what made it easier to lie to myself is the fact that I've only just begun to start taking steps to follow my dreams and I always thought of myself as "too old to start now." (You and I are the exact same age, Danny, literally-- in fact we have the exact same birthdate!) You were starting your own company in Japan 3 years ago and I was still hiding in my comfort zone here in Chicago. Like you said though, "it's going to happen anyway because that's me, so I may as well get started," I thought. Hopefully I'm on my way now.
Thanks as always for the inspiration, Danny! いつもありがとうございます。今後とも、よろしくお願いします。
Wow! I am very happy that I was able to provide some useful information! It's definitely the kind of place that rewards repeat-visitors since the area is so large and so full of beauty and hidden treasures. Please enjoy it again! ^_^
Aww! I wish I'd read this post earlier! I could have watched on Tokyo MX TV while I was in Japan (just came home the day before yesterday).
Oh man! Gorgeous cars! I wouldn't have any problem at all driving around in one of those cars; I would drive with confidence and a smile on my face. I wouldn't do it here in the U.S. though for it would surely be vandalised.
Mm. Wait, nevermind. It got removed. Oh wells!
Just in case someone happens to visit this post again in the future, take a look at part 2:
LOL! Classic Fam Guy right there. I'm sorry it was such a disturbing experience. ^^
I hope your visit to the Doctor went well!
Ooh! Let's talk about that! I would be grateful if you took a minute or two to share what you're getting from it. I think I need some help getting perspective on this one. I, personally, see two possible messages here--
FIRST is decidedly mocking non-Japanese Otaku culture in that westerners who are self-proclaimed "Otaku" truly believe that they are "becoming Japanese" without fully understanding the breadth and scope of Japanese culture (obviously it goes far beyond anime, manga and video games). I would accept this if I perceived that this message was delivered clearly and successfully (but I don't think it was).
The SECOND possible message is a more superficial one which is the stardom of foreign people in Japan. The local Akihabara folks take a secondary role as mere supporting actors to the "amazing" Kirsten Dunst with her power and influence from overseas. (Or perhaps this WAS the message, but in a satirical way?)
HAHAHAHA! dead last FTW!
I always HATED this song (especially that guitar-riff at the very beginning that get repeated during the song). Here is the original from 1980 by The Vapours:
My opinion-- this video is patronising and objectifies rather than celebrates Japanese culture (Otaku culture, actually, despite what the song suggests). Blech.
Eh... what sort of "cheese"...?
"took a photo of her" LMAO!! That's fantastic! Nicely played!
WOw!! I had to go back an look again! heh! With the curry and Mirai-chan's oppai in the foreground, it's hard to notice the Taj Mahal!
Me Too! Me Too! 未来ちゃんガンツ・ヴァージョンはめっちゃかっこいい！
WONDERFUL! Simply wonderful!
This never happens in Chicago because public transport vehicles are NOT comfortable. The only time I ever fell asleep on a train was on a commuter train traveling from a far suburb of Tokyo into Shinjuku station. It was so warm and comfortable in there and the trains dosn't shake, rattle and roll like the trains do here.
This is so exciting! We've all been waiting for a long time since Figma Mirai was first announced. The time is drawing nearer-- I can hardly wait!
Wow! So many taking/passing Levels 2 and 1! Well done!!! I took 4級 over the weekend. I wouldn't say that I destroyed it or killed it, but I am certain I passed it. Unfortunately the results are not sent out until February-- such a long time to wait! I will definitely be ready for 3級 next year.
If you check the international job offers in Japan, most of them specify JLPT Level 2.
