I’ve got a few questions and I’m hoping I can find a few answers.
In September I’m going to be moving with my girlfriend to Osaka while she takes a Japanese course and works towards getting her N1 in the JLPT. She will be in a two year course and I am hoping to stay with her. I’m hoping to work to pay the bills so I can stay there for the two years as well. I know I can go the teach English route if I have to, but I would rather continue doing development if possible.
I’m having trouble finding resources for finding development jobs in Osaka. Any one here have any information that could help me out? My Japanese is very basic, which I know is a limiting factor but I both have a Computer Science degree and work experience which I am hoping will help increase my hire-ability. I’ve tried contacting a few companies in Japan, but I never get any responses, is this normal? How keen are companies to helping with Visa sponsorship?
On a side note, any one know about if Node JS is catching on in Japan for web development? I’ve been doing more and more of it lately and really enjoying it. If there was any possibility of me doing Node development that would be super exciting.
