Not so long ago, I signed up for this website without high expectations. I was just searching for online gigs when the name came up alongside a few sites that I’ve mentioned here before. Making an account seemed to not hurt so I went for it. What makes it pretty easy to navigate is that it provides language options which include English, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Portuguese, and as expected, Japanese. Even if my Japanese is still far from business level, there’s no need for me to consult any translating app when reading the given job information. If you’re the same as me or you have just started learning Japanese, don’t fret, they’ve got you covered.
It’s amazing that through YOLO JAPAN, one can apply for full-time or part-time employment without submitting a full CV or cover letter. Searching for jobs in a foreign country can be nerve-wracking and the same goes for preparing a resume written in Japanese or even English. Instead of having to describe and sell yourself in a formal written form, a self-introduction video feature allows you to make an impression. Although it’ll only take about 5 minutes to record, I haven’t made one yet as I’m still trying to figure things out. To apply as an English instructor or not is an ongoing battle. Some of the listed non-teaching jobs actually interest me, however, they seem unsuitable for me for the time being in terms of the Japanese level requirement and location. The cool thing though is that I can still collect rewards when I share the listings with people who’ll apply for the job offers.
Meanwhile, I go through the other opportunities (and the main reason why I joined) like taking surveys or sharing experiences on social media in exchange for rewards such as gift cards or cash. As a matter of fact, I received my first rewards (2 Amazon gift cards) last month which made me believe how reliable this site is. Big or small, they keep their word. Excited to get more! It’s not just about receiving, it’s also about giving. In taking part in surveys, you’re contributing to those who are carrying out some research and spreading useful information. Furthermore, isn’t it wonderful to try out new products, attend events and get paid for sharing your experiences with others? What an enjoyable way to earn some extra income!
I’m truly glad I decided to be a user of this free service! If you’re interested to know more about it, just go to their site at your convenience. You might find a job that suits you best and at the same time earn extra cash in your spare time.
