Recently I started checking job listings in Tokyo looking for part time development jobs but haven’t had any luck finding open positions. I know that the job market took a big hit with the pandemic but I was wondering if part time IT jobs are something common in Japan.
I have been working as a back end developer for a little over 6 years but my Japanese is almost nonexistent so I was thinking about applying for a student visa and spend at least a year learning Japanese. Meanwhile I could work part time as a dev to keep adding work experience for the HSP visa.
Does this sound possible? I’m mostly worried that morning classes wouldn’t work with the “standard” working hours.
Greatly appreciate any info regarding this.
