Are you tired of the traditional 9:00 to 17:00 job? Are you looking for a fast-paced environment with quick managerial opportunities and an attractive financial package? Are you a curious and outgoing person willing to promote and advertise the success stories and companies of Japan’s business leaders?

If this description sounds appealing, then come and apply to join our young and dynamic team at The Worldfolio Japan!

Who We Are:
The Worldfolio is a media & communication agency specialized in the production of socio-economic and industrial reports.

Thanks to our partnerships with famous media outlets (some of which you may read or watch every day!), we create media campaigns in which we promote the most dynamic sectors of the Japanese economy. To do so, we interview the Executives of both Fortune 500 and Medium Size enterprises, along with Government Officials and economic experts. To finance these reports, we sell advertising and promotional placements within our media mix to the companies that we interview. Our business model is therefore a combination of journalism, multimedia-planning and advertising sales.

As a Sales Representative, a typical day will include the following:
-Make a presentation to a Japanese Business Leader to convince him of the importance of being featured in our report
-Make an advertising sales pitch to the PR department of a Japanese enterprise or directly to the leader of the enterprise
-Close advertising deals still under negotiation through email follow-ups, phone calls and face-to-face meetings
-Make a presentation to the PR department of a Japanese enterprise to convince them to grant us a meeting
-Attend and support our journalist team in conducting interviews with Japanese business leaders
-Make market research and preparations for your next presentation and sales pitch
-Follow-up with clients and coordinate upcoming publications

Oh! and you might need to do all of that while travelling to Hokkaido, Kansai or Okinawa (get ready to discover the awesomeness of Japan’s regions!)

What profile we look for:
-You are curious and enjoy learning about topics as varied as Robotics, Pharmaceuticals, Automotive, Real Estate… (and everything else Japan excels at!)
-You are outgoing, social and have great interpersonal and presentation skills
-You are a result-driven individual who enjoys taking on challenges and who performs under pressure
-You are money-driven, adaptable, and willing to work the extra-hour to significantly increase your pay check
-You are motivated by leading and managing international teams and want to be promoted FAST
Note: At the Worldfolio, we do not just want to “hire you,” we want to train you to become our next Country Director!

-We do not require any particular Degree or past experience in Advertising/ Media. What we care about most is your ability to learn and to work for the success of our team!
-Fluent in English (both written and oral)
-Speaking Japanese or a second language is preferred, but not required (there are many Spanish and French speakers in our company)

What we offer
-An attractive financial package composed of a fixed salary (USD 3,850) + monthly performance bonuses + monthly commissions.
Note: For you to understand how the bonuses and commissions influence your pay, consider that a new sales representative makes between USD 60,000 to USD 90,000 on his/her first year

-Accommodation and living utilities are paid for if you decide to live in our corporate apartments

-2 to 4 month sales training provided

-Private health insurance

-A clear career path with yearly promotions. Our Japanese operation has experienced unprecedented growth since two years, and there is a lot of room for development and expansion!
