Looking for a new job opportunity

Hey everyone!
Due to a conflict with my previous workplace, I had to leave my job after a series of unpleasant experiences (leaving me a bit traumatized) and I'm now looking for a new job opportunity, preferably with a foreigner-friendly creative agency. I do not despise Japanese creative agencies but I'm quite reluctant to work with them again. I will apply to them if push comes to shove but before then, I'm hoping to discover more opportunities out there. I would be more than grateful to hear your recommendations.

A little bit about me: I'm a graphic designer/art director stationing in Chiba (200m away from Tokyo... a bridge away) whose main focus lies in branding. You can catch some of my works on Canvas or from my Behance page (I also have a web-based portfolio so please send me a message if you wish to visit it). Although I'm "technically" a new graduate (I graduated from university this April), I've been freelancing as both a professional translator and as a designer in the last 2 years and a half, and I believe that I'm qualified to take on a position higher than an entry-level one (though I do not mind starting from the bottom either). Please do give me a notice if you need more information, I would be more than just glad to share more if you are interested.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Mihn,

I'm really sorry to hear about your troubles. It's a pity that there are some agencies out there that are so difficult to work with.

I'm afraid we're not in a position to hire anyone full-time right now, but I wanted to let you know that my team (Tacchi) has been really impressed by the work you've shared on Canvas recently, and we'd already discussed getting in touch with you if a project comes up in the future that would benefit from your style of identity design. I'll let you know if/when that happens!

In the meantime, good luck in your search. And if I hear of any nice companies looking for someone like you, I'll be sure to let them know that you're available.

Hey Mark,
Thanks for your kind consideration. I would be of great help if my experience could help your team in any way, so don't worry and just let me know if a project comes up!
