I’m an Argentinian developer with serious intentions to find a visa sponsorship in Japan.
5 years of backend developer experience(Java, spring framework, hibernate, other stuff),28 years old.
In my schedule to get my dreamed visa I have to finish my last 3 university courses to get my degree( University Computer Analyst, even if the name sounds weird it’ s a computer science degree, 3 years long) and prepare for technical interviews.
This will be over by december. The thing is, I’ve been checking some work opportunities here and there which are quite fitting for my experience, and I’m tempted to do a try, even if I still don’ t really have a degree to show.
Should I? Or should I wait to have the degree so I can have a better chance while trying? With the querantine situation it seems sort of feasible to start working from here and move by the start of 2022.
I don’t know if taking a risk could backlash so I prefer to ask people more into the topic.
As a plus, my country is eligible for working visa, could that be useful while searching for a job? I think if I don’t remember wrong you cannot work as a full time employee with that visa, so I’m not sure if any programming job will want that.
Thanks a lot for reading the long wall of text, I think most is needed to understand my situation but I could have overdone it.
