Any former ESL teachers found success in non-teaching role?

Hey all. Aside from my introductory post, this is my first post to this forum. I am curious to know if there are any former ESL teachers here who have found success in non-teaching roles in Japan (Alternatively, if you've found success in ESL (getting a university gig, etc.), I would like to hear about that too.)

Some questions would be: How did you get into your non-teaching role? Did the position require a post-baccalaureate degree or other experience? How long were you teaching English before you landed a position in your new field? What career advice would you give to someone planning to live in Japan long-term?

So who am I? I'm a prospective ALT who is waiting for borders to open up so I can start my new position in Tokyo. I've taught in Vietnam before as well as domestically at a language school, totaling a year and a half's experience. I have a BA + CELTA. I have a strong interest in Japan and Asian countries.

Looking forward  to hearing from some of you about your experiences.
