    HyperDia

    I was so happy to see that HyperDia offers English support for getting round on the trains here in Japan! The only downside being that they charge double for that English version after the trial...

    Re: Residence Card vs Mobile Phone Contract

    I arrived yesterday. They just waved me through and handed me the card. Still, I guess I'll register my address when I get to Osaka this weekend, maybe? If you never hear from me again, you'll know...

    Re: Business Cards

    Excellent input, on the whole! Sincerely appreciated. I'll probably set up a basic 'point of contact' card in case someone hands me their own card and I can return the sentiment. I'll be sure to only...

    Business Cards

    Do you have one?

    Do you need one?

    Do people give them to you?

    I don't know who I am anymore!

    That’s a difficult question to answer really, because I’ve always just tried to be myself when applying for something over trying to be what I think they want me to be.

    Re: Interac UK Applicants

    My seminar was in March and I heard back around three weeks later. I know the UK office is really busy and staffed by two people. I've waited two weeks for an email to be responded to as well.
