3 Realistic Jobs in Japan for International Graduates

This article is sponsored by American University.

Maybe you’ve grown up on anime and manga. Perhaps you’re a devout fan of sumo, samurai and geisha. Japan has a bit of a starry quality for many outsiders interested in the culture, but international graduates often have to put aside their dreams of working on anime or becoming a geisha — only extremely rarely do non-Japanese workers get these types of jobs. You can, however, aim to have a long and happy career in Japan, if you know how to market the skills the Japanese most often seek from foreign workers.

Business transfer jobs in Japan

If you’re looking to work in Japan in the long term, the best way to secure steady work is to start at a company in your own country, which you know has a presence in Japan. Apply and make it known from the start you hope to transfer to live and work in Japan. Eventually or even right away, you might be transferred to the Japanese office. Getting a job in Japan via a business transfer offers long-term job security. Whenever you want to go back home or if you want to work in another country, if you perform well, your employer might be able to easily arrange your transfer.

TEFL jobs in Japan

TEFL jobs are one of the most common means of employment for native English speakers in Japan. TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) offers a number of options for international graduates in Japan, including living in metropolitan areas like Tokyo. The Japanese Embassy of the United States reports 40,000 Americans work in Tokyo alone. TEFL jobs might include:

  • Working as an assistant teacher at a public or private middle or high school alongside a Japanese English teacher
  • Teaching for a private school that specializes in English instruction; the parents of school-age kids pay for these optional lessons, and the small private schools do nothing but teach English; you may also teach adults looking to advance their English knowledge
  • Working in an administrative position at a teacher exchange program headquarters

TEFL jobs in Japan don’t always require previous teaching experience or even a teaching degree. However, if you apply without a specialized degree, you may not get a call back. Because TEFL jobs in Japan are so commonly sought by foreigners from around the world, there’s a lot of competition for these roles. Get a Masters in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and you’re more likely to be considered to teach English in another country like Japan.

IT jobs in Japan

Japan is home to some of the world’s most innovative companies. As a technology leader, you might think it has plenty of native IT workers to fill all the tech positions, but to truly be innovative, Japanese companies recognize that they need more global perspectives. Training in information technology will prepare you to find IT jobs in Japan, making strides in industries such as the auto industry, the computer industry, and virtually any other industry — there’s always a need for more efficient technology to help businesses thrive.

Additional possibilities for work in Japan

The Japan Times reports there were 717,504 foreign workers in Japan in 2013, a number up 5.1% from 2012. You’re not limited to just the three careers above when aiming to work in Japan, but you’re likely to find the most success opting for a realistic and traditional approach. That being said, some foreigners have found success as:

  • Foreign models and extras in TV and film productions
  • Investment bankers
  • Bartenders or “hosts” and “hostesses”
  • Professors
  • Researchers
  • English-language journalists

You might also consider studying abroad in Japan with a student visa. You can start networking with professionals during your studies. Those connections may prove essential to finding work in Japan once you start looking.

Competition for jobs in Japan is fierce, even among the sectors most likely to hire foreign workers. If you go in expecting to work in the field that made you fall in love with Japan, like anime or manga, you turn an already competitive situation into a nearly impossible one. Start your career in Japan through one of the more conventional paths, and do everything you can to make yourself a more attractive job candidate. Maybe someday you’ll be able to pursue other passions, but you won’t get a work visa without a realistic career plan.

Experience of Bangladeshi Student

Montashir Hossain, Hitotsubashi University, Faculty of Economics

I would like to share my experience of studying in Japan. Japan has given me so many good memories. I would also like to share my career path after the university to give you an idea of what career opportunities you can have. Let me first give a brief introduction of myself.

My name is Montashir Hossain. I have studied in an English medium school in Dhaka. I have got the Monbukagakusho (MEXT) Scholarship from Japanese Government after passing Edexel A level Examination. However, most Monbukagakusho scholars from Bangladesh I know have passed HSC exam from Bengali medium school. The scholarship offers chance to many students from different backgrounds of curriculum. I have always had a great admiration towards Japan. How the nation came back to one of the world’s largest economies after great deal of suffering. That was one of the reasons I chose to study in Japan.

I have got a chance to study in Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo, a renowned place to study economics in Japan. One of the main obstacles for foreign students to study in Japan might be the language barrier. However the universities in Japan provide focused and generous Japanese language learning classes. Those, combined with an enough hard work, will surely help to crack down the barrier. Those classes helped me a lot in improving my Japanese. Besides, number of lectures given in English is increasing nowadays in many universities. My university provided me a great environment to learn. All of the professors I met were really generous, responsible and passionate. If I had any confusion about a lecture, they would explain till I got convinced. I had a great opportunity of striving for more knowledge every day.

Besides study, there often was a party to make new friends around the university campus. I could to travel around. Whenever I got a free time I used to travel with my friends to watch beautiful meet many people around the world and got to know many cultures and backgrounds. My hobby was sceneries and eat delicious foods. Metropolitan area inspired me and rural area calmed my mind. Types of food seemed endless; I could never get bored, which made me gain a quite lot of weight!

There are many job opportunities in Japan. Some of my senior scholars from Bangladesh I know are currently working in famous Japanese companies like Sony, Toyota and etc. Some are working in foreign investment bank in Japan. Some are pursuing further academic path. About my career, I have got a job in a trading company in Japan that will start in April 2014 after finishig my bachelor course . The job hunting was tough but there were many job seminars for international students and support from the university. The Japanese company I am joining is a global company. In future I hope to contribute to Bangladesh and Japan by bridging the nations to the world.

Studying in Japan has given me so many life-time experiences that I will never forget, including some tough times. Japan has also given me great career opportunity to succeed. I can never be grateful enough. I was able to spend a really satisfactory student life. I hope and am quite sure that the students from Bangladesh going to study in Japan will feel the same way in the future.

Japanese companies rate Bangladesh as top investment destination: JETRO Survey

Competitive wages, low energy prices and cheap production cost as a result, rated Bangladesh the top investment destination for Japanese companies last year, according to a recent survey.

The Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) conducted the survey on more than 20 countries in Asia and Oceania, which found Bangladesh as the most lucrative investment destination both in manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors, for the second consecutive year.

The wages in Bangladesh are one fourth of China and half of India, the survey added. Low energy prices and foreign investment friendly business environment add additional values to the sourcing, production and manufacturing in Bangladesh.

The JETRO survey on the ‘Conditions of Japanese Companies in Asia and Oceania’ said the country can be an attractive destination for Japanese investment as production cost in Bangladesh compared to Japan is less than half. It is 82 per cent in China, 73 per cent in Vietnam and 80 per cent in India, the survey added.

Though the survey rated Bangladesh high for business confidence with highest 63.3 points, operating profit of some Japanese companies remains a concern, according to the survey.

Business confidence of the Japanese companies is expected to improve in 2016. According to the JETRO survey, 44.8% of companies expect operating profits to increase, while those predicting a downturn decreased from the outlook for 2015, down to 13.3%. Among the reasons for improvement, “sales increase in local markets” ranked first. In emerging countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia and India, the diffusion index (DI) – the proportion of businesses reporting increased operating profits minus those reporting decreased operating profits compared to the previous year – exceeded 60 points, representing a significant improvement of business confidence.

The annual survey of the JETRO conducted during October and November 2015 interviewed Chief Executive Officers of over 9,590 companies ranking Bangladesh at the 5th place from the top as 67.4 per cent of Japanese companies opted for future expansion in the country.

The survey showed high growth potentials, reduction of cost, review of production and distribution network and easy to secure labour as reasons for their expansion.

Some 230 Japanese companies have invested in the country mostly in export processing zones involving US $ 250 million, according to the JETRO.

The CEOs of Japanese companies found volatile management problems related to quality of employees, competitors, little scope of local procurement and quality control as some of the challenges they faced.

Over 57 per cent CEOs think that the quality of employees are not up to the mark while half of them want to concentrate more on quality control. Some 56.3 per cent focused on complicated customs clearance in Bangladesh. But 70.6 per cent consider local procurement as the biggest challenge for expansion in Bangladesh.

The survey showed that companies in Bangladesh have to procure materials from China followed by Japan indicating poor development of support and backward linkage industries as well as connectivity with South East Asian countries, particularly by sea.

Competitiveness Adviser and former Wall-Street professional Mr. Kauser Bhuiyan explains this market situation as opportunities for other Japanese companies. For example, to fill the gap creating support and backward linkage supply chain to the EUR 25 billion textiles and apparel industry of Bangladesh, as Mr. Bhuiyan stressed. Currently, almost all such supplies are coming from China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Korea, Italy and Germany whereby Japanese companies play marginal role until now.

He thinks Japanese companies can tap into the large pool of demand in the yarn, fabrics, dye, chemical, enzyme, machinery, spare parts, energy and resource efficient technologies and process know-how on one hand and human resource development on the other.

Optimisation of rate of return on investment or healthy profitability of a business is all about right allocation of resources and competitiveness in the market, which many Japanese companies are yet to learn and accept in the ever changing global competition environment. They should increasingly focus on finding the right balance between quality and costs of a product than just making the best products in the world; and last but not least profitably sell those to the global market competing with other players in the market place, Mr. Bhuiyan adds.

Along the same line, JETRO recommended creation of congenial business environment to help reduce cost of Japanese companies doing business cutting down operational costs.
