Apply for resort work in Japan online now.
Getting a job in Japan is a great way to improve your Japanese language skills, make Japanese friends, and see the country in a way that you could never do so if only travelling. There are many services dedicated to helping you get a job in Japan, making the process easier than ever before.
The first question you have to ask yourself is what kind of a job do you wish to get in Japan? What qualities do you have, and where could you use them most? English teaching, IT, legal, finance, graphic design, fashion, imports/exports, resort and hotel work; there are many jobs out there. Which one would you be happiest doing?
In this video, William from Australia talks about his time working in Japan at a Japanese resort. William worked at a resort in Hakuba Villiage, Nagano Prefecture, between December 2012 and March 2013.
Professional jobs like legal, finance, and IT are where the money is, though they are particularly rare. Try googling relevant terms and you should find multiple recruitment agencies to source great positions for you. Keep in mind though that skills and qualifications including a high level of Japanese will probably be required for these highly sought-after positions.
English teaching is the most common option for most foreigners migrating to Japan. With globalisation, everyone is being forced to learn English, meaning there are a wealth of teaching positions available in Japan, for suitable candidates. It used to be that almost any English speaker could get a teaching job – nowadays though, the entry criteria have been raised, and a bachelor degree is usually required at minimum to secure a teaching position. The best range of English teaching positions is probably found on the Gaijinpot website.
If you are just out of university, or still a student, a Working Holiday Visa allows you to work part-time at a resort or hotel, and get a chance to travel freely throughout the wonderful country, for a period usually up to 1 year (18 months for Australians at the time of writing). Such work is not paid well, but as William points out, it is a great experience and provides a perfect opportunity to improve your Japanese and make friends with people from all over Japan.
If getting a job in a Japanese hotel or resort sounds like something you might be interested in, learn more and Apply now. If other lines of work interest you more, a google search should bring up an array of sites and services aimed at helping you get a job in Japan.
Good luck, and we hope you have a wonderful time in the Land of the Rising Sun!
