My best mate and I have been contracting our services to our clients for long enough. When the time came for a holiday late last year and the opportunity for a large group of friends to visit India, we both signed up for that! The clients naturally needed to know, who will be running the projects in our absence? My usual first option is to recommend my best friend and... that really wasn't going to work this time. Who do you recommend when you don't know anyone else that could possibly do your job?
Now here in the sweaty metropolis of Hiroshima, in my new job, I am experiencing some complete contrasts:
- I don't work by myself at all. There are several other teachers and support staff in the branch office.
- I have been under observation throughout training and I have additional observations coming up soon.
- The pay goes into the account every month - that's a welcome first that I'm really looking forward to.
- We cannot prepare for any classes at home!
