6. Don’t be afraid to tell people your career as a entertainer. You might never know when the opportunities starts flying in, and mentioning that you are “Model” or so will not harm you! Rather someone might remember that you are an model and give you gigs.

7. Have a friend groups that are in entertainment business. Having a friend that has knowledge in entertainment  business might help you get gigs! Remember to not used your friends, because they are just “a friend” not a Job giver.

8. If you are in new stage of being in entertainment industry, try several things. You might be into singing but sometimes you can try other things starting off by being model and you might have career from there, who knows!? So stop hesitating and have a large perspective on seeing the world.

9. Make a portfolio for yourself. Especially if you are an model, make sure you have on a good portfolio so you don’t have to tell people what you can do in your mouth, you can actually show it. If you are an artist, you can have mixtape or demo ready on your phone so people will take you seriously.

10. Use social media wisely. It’s better to have your talent in your social so if you meet a person and you don’t have your portfolio, you can still have something to show. You might never know who you might bump into.

11. Sometimes reject job. If you get to a point where you consistently can get a gig, you need to set a standards to yourself. So basically if the gig is not paying certain amount of the pay or if it’s not well known, you don’t take the job, people will gradually know you as the high paying entertainer, however this might back fire you if you are rejecting gigs too often. Possibly leads you to have less gigs

12. Be kind at all time. Rumors spread so quickly in city of Tokyo, got to watch out on what you say sometimes, the guy you sitting next to you on Yamanote line might be your next director for your gigs

13. Explore places! Social media might let you meet people but, sometimes you got to move your feet to see who is out there or what you can learn from places or person.

14. Don’t be afraid to ask question. It’s better to talk than to be quiet, if you want to learn new technique and someone around you know it make sure you ask them, you might not get the right answer all the time but every time you’ll get new perspective.

15. Never forget that confidence. No matter what you do, understand that being an entertainer means you are giving out a show. If you act like you know what you are doing, people will acknowledge that. However you also have to truly believe within you that you are capable of anything and that you are unstoppable as a person. Mindset can truly trigger a person.

As a famous talent in Japan, who deeply is in involved in our company Bobi Ologun once said, ” an entertainer has to change the energy of the room to be better” so make sure you always come with good energy.

Seek new opportunities for the passion you have.

  • Online: You can search for new opportunities online. Examples is social media. It could be instagram, Twitter or Facebook, it’s easier to find people of your interests.
  • Friends and family: Ask people you know if they know about any opportunities that would be a good fit for your skills, interests and experience.
  • Meetups/networking events: Attend meetups and networking events where you can talk to people who might be able to help you find an opportunity.
  • Job applications: Apply for jobs that sound interesting and reflect the skills that you have.

Learn the language and cultural customs.

To succeed in Japan, you’ll need to learn the language and cultural customs. There are many ways to do this:

  • Make Japanese friends/partners : This can benefit you as you talk everyday, it’s better for your friends or your partners to not be bilingual of your first language, so you’ll not fall back to your comfortable language.
  • Study up on Japanese history and culture : You’ll find many resources online or at your local library that will help you get started with this process. By learning the history of the country you’ll notice how the language is made and the the structure of the language.
  • Watch Japanese Movies or TV shows : By watching shows with subtitles of your first language, it might not be a perfect translation but you’ll understand the nuances.

Get a job that is related to your field of interest.

The first step to becoming big in Japan is getting a job that is related to your field of interest. If you are an English teacher, then teach English! If you are an artist, then create art! By getting job in your interest, you’ll be able to enjoy the work you do and also you can evolve your skill as you work.

People often think that if they want to become big in Japan then they must leave their home country and move here permanently–but this isn’t true! There are many ways for foreigners who live outside Japan (and even within) to become big in this country without actually living here full-time:

  • Get involved with volunteer organizations like JET (Japan Exchange & Teaching) which send non-Japanese nationals abroad as part of their job descriptions;
  • Take advantage of opportunities such as study abroad programs offered by universities around the world where students spend time studying abroad before returning home again afterwards;
  • If you like putting yourself out there in the public, social media like TikTok, Youtube and etc can also get you big in Japan by posting Japanese content like comparison between two countries and maybe telling stories of experience and opportunity’s in Japan. Social media is no joke nowadays.

Try to work or study at Japanese companies or schools.

Again, language is honestly main key when it comes to Japan, no matter how much you study Japanese by yourself, the language keeps updating, but by going to Japanese work place or Japanese school, you’ll get have the experience of Japanese that people often use and speak. More native your Japanese get, people in the country feels more comfortable around you. You’ll find better opportunities and understand things for better. Also being able to start a small conversation or joke around in Japanese people will feel more trusting and being Japanese workspace or school will help you learn that.

Study in Japan as soon as possible.

Japan is a great place to study abroad. It’s one of the most popular destinations for international students, and there are many opportunities available for you to work or study in Japan. If you’d like to do both, that’s possible too!
