Job hunting Rule 18: How can I find a job at a Japanese company?


Sometimes people ask me, How can I get a job at a Japanese company? Generally speaking, there are three main ways that you can do this. The first is to take the approach of applying to Japanese companies in America. Unlike Japanese companies in Japan, Japanese-American companies offer year-round recruitment.


The second method is to register with an employment agency such as TWI that introduces personnel to Japanese companies. By doing so, not only can you be introduced to companies that are searching for employees, but you can also receive advice and consultation on how to specifically succeed in your job search. Furthermore, in some cases Japanese companies in Japan want to be introduced to bilingual applicants, so in addition to being introduced to Japanese companies in America, you may have the opportunity to go to Japan.

今までの2つはアメリカにある日本の企業への就職方法ですが、それ以外に、日本にある大きな会社が、アメリカに来て人材募集をすることもあります。ボストンキャリフォーラムというイベントを聞いたことがありますか? ボストンで開催される大きなジョブフェアです。ここに行くと、日本人留学生や日本に関心のあるアメリカ人学生を採用するために日本から来た大手企業の担当者に直接アピールすることができます。しかも、現地社員としての採用ではなく、日本本社での採用になりますので条件も良くなります。

Up until now we have discussed how to find a job at Japanese companies in the United States, but sometimes large companies come to America from Japan to recruit. Have you ever heard of an event called the Boston Career Forum? It is a major job fair that is held in Boston. If you go to the Career Forum, you can appeal directly to hiring managers of leading companies that came to America to hire both Japanese exchange students and American students who are interested in Japan. In addition, rather than being employed as an on-site employee, being hired at the headquarters in Japan will yield favorable conditions.
