I’ve been wondering about moving to Japan for a couple of years now. There’s a lot of stuff I have to think about, so I’ll try to write some of it here to get your opinion
I speak 0 Japanese (besides basic phrases). I’m a software engineer (most of my career has been building mobile apps on Android). Every now and then there’s a couple of job listings pop up that look like a real possibility for myself, the main issue however, would be, with my girlfriend. She’s a UI/UX designer (with experience in other design jobs/positions) and from the few searches I’ve done, it looks way harder to find a position for a non-Japanese speaking person for this kind of role. Are there any job boards that you’d recommend?
We’re both in our early 30s and we plan on having a child in the next couple of years. I’m mentioning this because I can imagine it can make things harder.
Does this make sense or should I just forget about it? Anything I should have in mind? I know this sound a bit all over the place but I want to get as much practical advice/input as possible.
Thanks in advance!
