I am currently living in Okinawa, Japan under a marriage visa. I’m 26, married, with a 10 month old son. I was prior military but have been teaching English at a small academy for the past year and a half. I realized that it was something I didn’t want to do since there was no growth potential or job security. As well as sub-average pay. I put my one month notice in this week.
I have some experience in design and development, but have been doing many online courses, paid and unpaid.
I am currently attending online college to get a degree in information systems management, but find myself much more interested in the coding aspect. My Japanese language level is very basic but I am studying and learning.
I guess my question is: what should I do to break into the industry? Even as an intern or junior I would strive to show whichever company my willingness to learn. Thanks in advance for any advice.
