One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to cook more at home. While I am a great Italian cook, I can boil water for pasta, I want to expand my repertoire. Adding some Japanese recipes to my home menu in 2013 is essential.
- Haken (派遣)
- Is the Japanese term for temporary employees dispatched to companies by staffing agencies.
- There are two types of Haken which follow different statutory laws
- The client cannot conduct a job interview with the candidate before/he she is employed by the client.
- The VMS cannot share information that could potentially identify the possible temporary staff.
- Hard-sell techniques will fail in Japan. Instead, find the points on which you and your Japanese counterparts agree, and then build upon those. A positive, persuasive presentation works better.
- The bow is a traditional greeting. If someone bows to greet you, observe carefully. If you are greeting an equal, bow to the same depth as you have been bowed to, because the depth of the bow indicates the status of the relationship between you.
