Messages from Job Search Specialists

“What are the advantages of working in Japan for you?” "Think about your life."

What kind of life do you want to lead? You should think about it seriously, not only on a short-term basis, but with a view toward your future. Obtaining a job is one of the means you can choose to lead the life you desire. When a student starts job hunting, the assurance of a job offer becomes the number one aim. However, you should objectively consider what advantages working in Japan will offer your future, and write them down. If you later become discouraged during your job search activities, you can read them again to get back on track with new energy.

“What are the advantages you offer a potential Japanese employer?” "Think about the company’s future, too."

List as many advantages as possible that you can bring to a company that might hire you. After studying the history, corporate philosophy, status quo and policies for the future of that company, consider what specific contributions you can make. In job hunting activities in Japan, seeing things from the other person’s point of view is important. By identifying not only the advantages you receive, but also those you can offer your employer, you will be able to draw a realistic picture of your future.

Make the most of FiSSC services!

Conducting job hunting activities alone is very hard. As FiSSC has people trained to help you with your job search, please feel free to talk with us about your concerns, or about things you do not understand when conducting your job hunting activities. We look forward to hearing from you.
