On November 19, 2013
Finding a job in Japan can feel like an overwhelming process but it doesn’t have to be. Japan is a very systematic country and knowing the correct procedure can make all the difference in how quickly you can land a job.
On this episode of the GPod, I talk to Byron Jones from Top Grade Japan, who started off as an English teacher and has worked his way up to become one of Tokyo’s top recruiters. He gives us the low down on how to apply for jobs from overseas, the level of Japanese you need to know, tips on understanding Japanese work culture, and more.
After you listen to this interview you will have a better idea of how to get a job in Japan. Start applying today by registering your resume on the GaijinPot Job System.
We also talk to Reno Tibke from Akihabara News about the latest tech in Japan. Reno takes a look at Japanese web design and why is looks so outdated compared to modern web trends.
