I am Kevin, a 22 year old software engineer from Australia. I have recently completed a dual of Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering - Computer and Software Systems with Honours and Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology - Computer Science. I am currently working full-time for a company called iSimulate and I’m about to reach my 2 year mark here. I’ve also had some work experience for a year at another company. Here’s my LinkedIn
It’s a goal of mine to move to Japan, working as a software engineer. It will not in the immediate future as I would like to gain more experience before moving forward. Currently, I am taking a few courses of Japanese in a university to move beyond a beginner/conversational level.
I have a variety of experience in a number of software and electrical engineering fields, however, software development is my passion. My focus as of right now is iOS development in both Objective-C and Swift. But I also have experience in the following:
- Cloud - AWS, Docker
Outside of work, I am slowly completing my website and practicing app development in iOS.
Is the only thing I can do to gain my better prospects for securing a job is learning Japanese and gaining more experience from work? I believe securing a visa would not be difficult for my situation. The primary thing that concerns me is job hunting.
Thanks for your advice,
