知人の再就職 Re-employment

知人に紹介された人(最近、シャープを早期退職した50歳台の人)が京都高度技術研究所(http://www.astem.or.jp/)に再就職が決定したとの良いニュースを先日いただきました。
ご存知の通り、アメリカと異なり日本では1970年以降、目立った大きな起業がなく大企業の老化とリストラという人減らしが続いていますが、能力のある人は早く決断して転進できることも事実のようです。
余談ですが、私が29歳で早期退職に応じたのは36年前、1977年でした・・・。
A friend I was introduced by a friend of mine gave me a happy news that he has got a new job at Advanced Scientific Technology & Management Research Institute of KYOTO (http://www.astem.or.jp/english/). He, in his fifties, was working for SHARP up till very recently and opted for his early retirement. 
It is true that a man of ability can make a fast decision and change his course amid the fact that many Japanese big aging companies have been reducing their workforce. As you know we have no new big companies established in Japan since 1970, which is different from the States. 
This is just an aside, but it was 36 years ago in 1977 when I decided my early retirement at the age of 29.
