Hi! I’m a half-Japanese half-Filipino (holding both passports) software developer who grew up in the Philippines. I’ve decided I’d like to migrate to Japan and work there in software.
Since I speak very little Japanese (but willing to learn), what do you think is the best way to pursue my career goals?
Based on your blog, I think a good plan of action for myself is to go on a short vacation to Japan, solely to attend the bilingual networking events and hope I can get some interviews from there. My problem is I have less than a year of professional working experience so I’m a little worried I might not get any interested companies and my trip would be wasted. As much as possible, I’d like to be able to secure a job before subjecting myself to Japan’s cost of living.
Would you happen to have any advice for me? Is my plan any good? Thanks!
