I am the COO of Fidel Consulting KK. We specialize in recruiting bilingual IT staff and management [CTO, CIO, Project Managers, Developers, Helpdesk, etc.]
Before Fidel, I ran a boutique Executive Search firm (NinePoint KK). I was the Executive Director in charge of the Executive Search Division at Asia-Net KK, the premier bilingual online recruiting portal in Japan. Prior to joining Asia-Net KK I was an associate with a Japanese Executive Search firm, Career Strategy Inc. where I was responsible for foreign capital clients for the Tokyo office.
I have participated as a Panel Member of RIETI BBL on “Labor Market Mobility in Japan” - June 2001 and have been interviewed on HR topics for the following magazines: Gainer, type and B-ing.
I am also a Certified Personnel Consultant registered with the National Association of Personnel Services (www.napsweb.org).
- Permanent recruiting (CTO, IT Director/Manager, System Engineer, Developer, etc.) - Interim IT management/consulting - Temporary IT staffing - Outsourced development (web, software, apps) available onsite or offshore - Managed services (helpdesk, network maintenance) - Localization (English to Japanese)
As a recruiter and a father I think constantly about what will give my children an edge when they head out into the "real" world and actually have to work for a living. Will reading to my 9 year old son each night actually make a difference and should I be reading Sir Fartsalot Hunts the Booger (yes, a real book) or would it be better (if less fun) to read Never Eat Alone? Should I get my 2 year old daughter a Barbie doll for Christmas or would the Nerf Machine Gun help to make her more assertive in her job interview?
