I been looking around the internet to find a job in Japan, but when i see the word Visa to work, i get super scared. To get the Visa, you have to have a 3 to 4 years College Degree to work. The top Job in Japan is being a English Teacher. I'm not good in English, i always failed my English Test, not proud to say that. Right now, I have a 2 years Degree in Air Condition and Refridgerating, also I have a Degree in Auto Electrical. I want to know from you guys, what you guys did to get a Job in Japan. I really want to go and live in Japan and also work there too.

maybe you have to get a work from your country, what have contacts to japan.
And if you can´t do like that, I just know and heard a lot about hostessjobs, but that´s not a good job and illegal~~

I think it will be hard for you to work in Japan if you are not Japanese.

Majority of the people I've known who worked in Japan have always been English Instructors there. Since English is a secondary language in Japan in there are no strict usage of the language you don't have to be the greatest English instructor; however, it helps if you have an good idea how to teach it there. Especially if you're going to teach it in a different language.

If you plan on getting a job in Japan it most certainly will be as an ALT (assistant language teacher) and most require a 4 yr degree. They will sponsor you through a company or organization so you will get your visa for employment.

About the best thing that you can do as a foreigner is to work as an English instructor. Japanese companies generally do not like to hire foreigners because they generally see them as liabilities and as ignorant of the language.

If you want a Job, you may as well stay in your own country, the Japanese economy isn't doing so well right now.

I'd love to live and work in Japan one day too, but I hear when it comes to employing foreigners they're pretty discriminatory. When I was there the only foreigners (to Japan) that I saw working were the ones in Roppongi that chased down other foreigners trying to get them to go to the "gentlemen's clubs." A job like that isn't much of a reason to go to Japan though.
