With freezing temperatures creating high hopes for big snowfall this year, Japan’s ski season is about to begin. The resorts are already receiving an unprecedented number of bookings from foreign winter sports enthusiasts. Popular Japan internship and resort job placement service company boobooSKI are also seeing record numbers of a different kind: in the volume of returning staff for their winter job vacancies. With repeat workers filling many positions, fewer prospects remain for those seeking winter placements. “We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our service, to both the hotels/resorts and our staff,” says Adam Claydon-Platt, director of boobooSKI, “Seeing so many of our past participants come back this year is an encouraging reaffirmation that our efforts are working.”
Japan is becoming an increasingly renowned international destination for winter sports enthusiasts and this year is no exception. In line with the seasonal influx of tourists every year, more and more winter resorts are taking on a certain number of foreign workers for the season, allowing them to experience Japan as the locals do.
The window of opportunity is closing quickly for those wanting to be placed in cold-climate situations. Luckily, boobooSKI, a well-known Japan internship and resort job placement company, still have a few winter vacancies left.
“Nearly 20% of our total participants this year are returning workers,” says Adam Claydon-Platt, director of boobooSKI, “Which is an awesome sign that they were happy with their previous experiences with us. The only drawback is for newcomers, because it’s left us with fewer remaining ski vacancies.”
Since a fifth of Adam’s staff have returned to work this ski season, it’s made the window of opportunity smaller for new applicants wanting to obtain a winter position. “Time is running out for the ski positions this year,” Adam continues, “in another week or two, all the positions will be filled.”
Adam also notes that when repeat staff come back, their working experience becomes even better. “Second time around, our team feel more like one of the Japanese locals, meaning they already know some people, they’re familiar with employers, the language, resort lifestyle, formalities and so on.”
Adam credits boobooSKI’s constant evolution in customer care as the reason for the spike in returning staff this year. He remarks, “We continually work to improve ourselves, to maximise the service we deliver to both our customers and clients, in every way. We prepare our team to the best of our abilities before they arrive, support them as much as possible while they’re working at the hotels/resorts, and do our best to help them with anything they need afterwards, to ensure their transition into Japanese life and their travels are as smooth as possible.”
Fortunately, Adam’s company also offers plenty of warm weather positions for those who miss the chance to get into the winter roles, “We’re also able to place applicants at amazing Okinawan beach resorts, in positions for approximately 3 months, at anytime throughout the year. Okinawa is so far south that the weather is warm enough for beach resorts to operate, even in winter.”
Adam goes on to say that if an applicant is keen and speaks a little bit of Japanese, “We should be able to secure a placement for them relatively easily.”
boobooSKI’s service for applicants includes initial eligibility screening, access to the best resorts, assistance with airfare, visas, insurance and more, including 24/7 support for the entire time they're in Japan. Adam finishes by mentioning that boobooSKI is about “Placing people in resort jobs with minimum hassle and maximum enjoyment.”
boobooSKI have taken their passion for Japan to innovate working and studying abroad. They help young people from around the world secure paid work in the country’s popular beach and ski hotels and resorts.
Their more recent internship programs were created for the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship between Japan and other countries; as well as to encourage students of various degrees, to improve their knowledge and skills by experiencing first-hand the internationally renowned Japanese work ethic, culture and approach to service.
