I am currently working in one of the dispatch companies as an IT Support engineer. I joined my current company in 2019 and was dispatched as a support engineer. My main role was to support various mobile testing activities and did nothing technical-related task. As the project was finished, I was waiting for my company to find me a new dispatch company. Because of the corona, my current company says they are facing difficulties in finding job placement for me. They are indirectly saying me to look for another company.
I came to Japan as a Japanese language student in 2017. Regarding my Japanese level, I have passed JLPT 2 and can speak somewhere near business level Japanese. Before coming to Japan, I had around 2 years of experience working as a PHP developer in my home country. Now, I am actively looking for a new job as a web developer. It is true that I have a long gap not working as a developer professionally, but I am actively learning programming during my weekend and have done few small projects also.
My question is:
Is it possible for me to find a job as a developer during corona time, if yes how should I approach companies for the job?
Or I should look for an IT support role?
I would be thankful if you guys could give me some advice.
