So here's the deal:
My character, an American, after graduating from a business school goes on to work for a company (for the sake of recognisability, we'll say Suzuki), has a knack for his work, and makes his ways rather successfully up the food chain, and, many a year later is offered a lucrative executive position--With a catch. He must relocate to Japan, where the company is based.
How likely is the above situation? Vaguely so? Absolutely not in the slightest? If not, I have another way it could be written, which is... a bit more cliche and angsty than I'd like, but nevertheless doable.
Thanks a lot for your help. :D
