Hello, So I just got to Japan about 3 weeks ago. I am a recent graduate of Computer Science from a college in Colorado. I thought it was a good idea to come here as a tourist and look for a job and when I find one be able to get a work visa. But I am finding a bunch of different answers on if I can or not. My question is, is it possible to transfer my visa status from a tourist visa to a work visa?
I am looking for a job in Tokyo doing either development or IT, either is fine. I do not have any professional experience yet.
Someone told me that I would have to leave Japan and then come back with a work visa, but I feel like that is a really dumb way to do things.
Thank you so much for your time!
