Is finding a job in Japan very hard?


Is finding a job in Japan very hard?

No (if you learn a few things)…
Japan has a great many industries and jobs are aplenty. They need as much as foreigners to fill their requirements… However, getting a job in Japan depends on the Skill Set you possess (Japanese language is a must) and what kind of job market you are applying into.

What minimum Japanese language is required?

Of course, it is easier to get a job if your skill matches with what is in demand but at some point in time it also comes down to the fact that if you have Japanese language skills with you, or even if you have undergone a basic Japanese language learning course, and you can speak minimum Japanese for basic communication, your chances become higher and better.

The reason behind this is that once there is no barrier of communication between you and the company that is willing to hire you, or as a matter of fact between the Job agents or consultants whom you are dealing with, then a robust trust factor gets developed. This trust factor is the main ingredient for your success in finding a Job in Japan, over Japanese people.

What is required for a Japanese TRUST FACTOR?

Difficulty in finding a job in Japan is absolutely equal to finding it in any other country. And if the language barrier has vanished, then it becomes even easier to apply with your particular skill set.
It is generally assumed (Even by your local Embassy) that if you want to live in Japan, you will have to deal with Japanese people in many situations. Having less to no Japanese skills will make you a “sort of a” handicap in communication. So from the prospect of an employer, it makes sense to hire people who can understand the instructions quickly and accurately.

Yes even in Japan, there are jobs that do not require communication skills (That one may think), but it is actually not true because even if there are jobs on a specific niche like labor in a factory, It will very certainly necessitate Japanese language study before or after you are hired.

If you can make ends meet, life in Japan may be rather pleasant, especially in the cities. It’s safe, calm, has nice food, a high standard of living, and most people are friendly and courteous. If it fits into your lifestyle, you can easily make yourself at home there. The efforts of learning Japanese language or Japanese cultural ways to get into the country shouldn’t bother you in front of these perks.
