Part time job is a very nice way to start work journey in Japan since it helps growth in terms of understanding Japanese work culture and spoken Japanese expression even faster than a permanent job in some cases. Part-time job is called “Arubaito” in Japanese language and is highly recommended for the first timers in Japan usually the students of Japanese language. It is a way to earn money and knowledge in a very less time though it may be tiring sometimes as it may require some extra body power depending on the job profile as well as maintaining your study schedule. For the full time employees, there can also be opportunities that offer working part time so that they can focus more on their hobbies rather than earning money but it also depends on the visa type and a special permission status is required to do so. In some cases like teachers, some companies provide flexible days and shifts to perform on various client sides and some companies book your schedule to a particular office. It entirely depends on your employer and the nature of work. You can also ask and choose from the sites that offer such kind of work, the names I have already mentioned the previous articles. Part time jobs has another aspect of sharing work between few employees but in that case your salary decreases drastically so in case you don’t have severe financial compulsion, you can experiment with work share style also. However particular qualification may be required at the time of applying because it is likely to be a skilled work like for example, working with an artist or make-up artist or hair dresser or with a chef getting paid training under a photographer or a media person. There can be many examples and again it will be a new discovery for your working career. No one knows you can end up becoming a famous personality in Japan if all goes well with you.
