I have around 5 years of experience (mostly frontend), and I wonder what would be the best option for me to find a software development job in Japan.
As far as I can see, it is possible to find a job sooner or later from abroad, especially if you are experienced enough. Also, it looks like I have enough points for the Highly skilled professional visa.
But the more I read job descriptions the more obvious it seems to me that moving to Japan first would be so much better to land a job in a timely manner.
Hence, I have a question. Is the difference between a 3-month language school course (no student visa) and a 6-month language school course (student visa) important for potential employers? Implying that I would be actively looking for a job 2-3 months before classes start.
