3 points that international students must know when job searching

My name is Otsuki and I am a student teacher at Wiz Global Co., Ltd. It's a little different from Japanese names.

I am from Shanghai, China. Ten years ago, I went to Japan to study. It's been 4 months since I started working. Knowing how hard it is to find a job in Japan, I would like to share my impressions of my experiences with job hunting in Japan and support them. For international students, I think there are three most important points for job hunting.

Japanese level

First of all, I think the Japanese language is the most important thing when it comes to job hunting in Japan. People who can speak Japanese fluently are more likely to be hired. If you find a job in Japan and cannot communicate well with Japanese people, you will find it difficult to work at a company and not progress. In fact, when I was working part-time when I was a student, my Japanese wasn't good enough, and I couldn't understand the store manager's instructions, so I felt it was very difficult. So, international students, let's do our best in Japanese.

Practice multiple times while looking in the mirror

I get very nervous during interviews. I was nervous and scared of the interview, and I couldn't answer the interviewer's questions on the way. On the other hand, it is better to practice multiple times before the interview. As you check your face in the mirror, answer the questions aloud as if you were talking to yourself in the mirror. You can also check the ideal facial expression when answering questions from the interviewer.

Let's use the job hunting support school

Lastly, it is recommended to make effective use of job hunting support organizations(Wiz Academy) .

Self-analysis, correction of resumes and entry sheets, preparation for interviews and business classes etc. can support to get job offer soon.
