Cheap way to stay in Tokyo for a few months? (internship)

I just got news that I got an internship at an architectural office (altough I just graduated as a a graphic designer) in Tokyo, which is crazy exciting. However, they can't offer any compensation (small studio) so unless I find another job next to this, I need some really cheap solutions. I just sent an email to the studio, asking them for assistance, but figured meta could help. My plan is to stay for 2-3 months. I saved up some money from side jobs, and don't mind spending it on this experience, but the less it makes a dent the better. My only idea so far was to work as some kind of au pair (I speak English, German, Dutch and Croatian fluently, I'm good with kids, but I am a guy, which I guess is not too popular a gender for babysitting), in exchange for a room. Any ideas? Also, some place where I could look for a small job on the side (preferably something where I could use my design skills, but don't mind a day job)? Also, how much can I expect to spend monthly if I'm, technically, still on a student budget? Thank a lot!

Should I ask my employer to indemnify me against IP claims?

My new job includes editing and publishing materials to the Internet. We generate most of it in-house, but occasionally use stock photos, video provided by others etc. I would like my employment agreement to explicitly state that the company will not ask or require me to use works that we do not have permission to use, that they assert that any materials they provide are cleared for use, and that they will indemnify my against any claims that may arise if something becomes contested by someone claiming intellectual property rights. I want to offer them a one-paragraph section they can insert into the agreement. How do I write it? [more inside]

Time to get a new job.

I'm trying to find a new job so I can start actually saving some money and move into my own place. I'm a college grad with a linguistics degree living in northern NJ. For the past three years, I've been living with family, paying a small amount of rent each month, living a paycheck-to-paycheck existence and working a job I don't particularly enjoy. I'm done with this, but I don't know where to begin. I know there are a lot of posts such as this one on here, but I'd like to try to find answers particular to my situation. [more inside]

Help me be a better interviewee

I am generally a good interviewee when I'm asked about anything other than me, but I struggle with the personal questions. One kind that often gets me is the "tell me about a time when you were X." Another would be"list three things your friends would find surprising/annoying/etc about you" or "what is a particularly stressful situation that you encountered in the last x months". My problem with these questions is in responding quickly. Once I think of a relevant example/answer I am pretty articulate, but the timing is an issue. [more inside]

Learn Adobe in a Flash

Two part question. 1.) Roughly how much does it cost for a company to hire someone to do one on one training for a new hire in Adobe Flash? 2.) Company likes you so much they offer you a job and are willing to pay out for your training on said and/or similar software, but give that as a reason for (insert too low salary range here) being the pay scale. You want to negotiate the best salary for yourself. Is it unheard of to ask for your salary to be increased the following year because the training will no longer be a hit to the budget?

The ball's in my court (I think). Now what?

I have been halfheartedly looking for a new job. My current position does not leave me much time or energy for searching, plus I have had a lot of illness in my family in the last year, which is time-consuming and emotionally draining. When a supplier I work with mentioned that someone in her company had left recently, I asked her whether she plans to replace him, and she said she does. I emailed her my résumé, and she sent me the job listing. In her email, she asked me whether I was interested, and if not, to let her know what my concerns are so they could address them because "your résumé is great!" How do I respond in the most effective manner? [more inside]

sent wrong copy of my resume

I applied to this job online by sending my resume, and after I was contacted by the HR lady, I told her that I had an updated version of my resume and so I sent it to her. A few days later, I then realized that I actually sent a wrong copy of my resume, which leaves off some of my education. It also erroneously outlined a job function that I did not actually do. The reason why it is wrong is because I didn't know how to word it precisely at first, but after a second draft (the correct version) I came up with a better description of what I did. So, do you guys think it will be fine if I email her the correct version of my resume and explain that I inadvertently sent her the wrong version? Or will it look bad? The interview is already set up by the way. Thanks.

How much should I listen to bad "gossip" about a job candidate?

I am sitting-in on job interviews for a new position in our department. I can ask additional questions our boss doesn’t pose and I’m being asked for my input. This is a great opportunity, but there is one problem. One job candidate is an acquaintance and former co-worker of a former colleague of mine. Over the years, I have heard a good deal of third-party gossip about this individual regarding his integrity, his chauvinistic attitudes and several other very negative attributes. [more inside]

My ADD interferes in my job sometimes, should I tell my boss?

Basically a quick one. I have been diagnosed ADD only recently, so the ethics of stuff is a bit muddy for me. I work in a library where exhibitions are frequently held (books exhibited in vitrines). The vitrines frequently hold valuable books, but are located outside the library itself. At the end of the day, I'm supposed to roll them inside, so they are safely locked. However, it already happened twice that I forgot to put them inside, both when something busy happened in the library right before closing (like yesterday I was helping out some students). This is extremely stupid I know, and I don't think there is any excuse, and I understand my boss being angry at such a simple task. But by 20 o'clock (when I close) I'm tired, and even looking directly at vitrines didn't trigger me moving them inside (usually I really do this though) So, would it be fine to let my boss know of my ADD? I don't want it to be an excuse, but I imagine it might be more understandable, and putting a huge note next time on the reception with "DONT FORGET" wont seem as odd. Nor do I want the fact that I have ADD colour his perception of me, but I imagine "careless" (which I'm not!) is probably a worse tag than "hyper". Please help, I have an otherwise good and friendly relationship with him.

Who has second thoughts about their dream job?

I really can't figure out what I want to do in my life. And it's scaring the crap out of me. At many times I really thought I knew what I wanted and then when I started working... I didn't, at all! I tried really hard to figure out what to do. I majored in political science, been involved in campaigns, and I thought I would just go to law school. But felt uneasy about the whole thing like it was just something I was supposed to do cause I would be good at it. So I decided to work a bit in a medical field, which was followed by living aboard for a few years. Now I'm dabbling in film and thinking about architecture. All amazing experiences but no closer to a conclusion. I feel super strongly about some careers and then realize I only feel strongly about those things because I admire the people in those fields and not necessarily the field itself. Does anyone have a similar story? Any conclusions? Can anyone help?
