Japan
Job Resources
Obtaining employment in Japan requires both clearly stated, marketable skills directly related to the job being sought and personal introductions.
Employment Trends
Japan’s industrialized, free market economy is the world’s third largest.
Information Technology
Japan is a global e-commerce leader and will likely grow more than 7 percent per year for the next five years.
Engineering
There is a strong demand for bilingual engineering professionals.
Accounting and Finance
Accounting and finance professionals continue to be among the ten most difficult positions to fill in Japan.
Healthcare Industry
Japan's health care spending is the third highest in the world.
Top Companies
The following list represents companies reporting the largest assets/revenues in the country. More than 400,000 additional corporate profiles can be found in Going Global's Employer Directory.
Work Permits/Visas
Visas are issued by the Japanese embassy or consulate in the applicant’s country of residence.
Resume/CVs
Any company in Japan that is actively looking to hire a foreigner will happily accept a US-style résumé in simple English.
Interviewing Advice
The purpose of interviews held by Japanese companies is not only to determine whether a candidate is qualified for a particular position, but also to determine if the applicant will fit into the company.
Cultural Advice
Expatriates who want to obtain employment in Japan need to have an understanding of, and respect for, this ancient culture and its people.
Business and Networking
With the right qualifications and connections, an interview may be only a formality. Without them, the best efforts may not be enough to even obtain an interview.
Sales & Marketing
The greatest demand for sales and marketing professionals will be for candidates in online sales.
Cost of Living
Japan is considered to be one of the most expensive countries in the world in which to live. One prominent survey recently ranked the cost of living for expatriates in Tokyo as the highest in the world.
