I transferred from Belgium to Tokyo in 2018 because I was fascinated by Japan since childhood. I never had the opportunity to travel to Asia but I lived for the first time abroad when I studied for an extra masters degree in China. Through this experience, I learnt that I love to be surrounded by international people and made me realise there is so much more to learn about different cultures. Since I was originally interested in Japan, I decided to make the transfer here. So far the transfer has been good. Michael Page has been open and everyone has been accessible. The market I cover is different, so I had to change my way of working tremendously. If you ever want to move abroad, Page allows it. These transfers are not as easy as everyone thinks. You need to be flexible and entering another market gives you plenty of challenges but it’s worth it!
