Work in Japan

I'm a junior in college who has been dating a transfer student for the past month. She just left for Japan and we both want to continue our relationship. I'm majoring in business supply chain. I will travel to Japan in December to stay with her but after that I don't know how to go back to Japan. Is it easy for a gajin to get a business job in Japan?

    Don´t do it if you don´t love the country you´re moving to, anon. If she dumps you you will be stuck in a country you don´t care for and where you don´t even speak the local language. Then what? If you do love the country and already know at least some Japanese go for it but have your own goals too. Don´t hitch your entire life´s trajectory to a woman you barely know

          Do not ignore this tidbit anon. I have worked with and befriended at least 5 different Japanese people that have been deep within their culture or affected by family that say the same thing.
          Honestly, you can YouTube educational videos about the don't ask don't tell of cheating in Japan. One of the things that influences this wide held belief is that once a kid has made their way between y'all, you 3+ will feel like such a family unit that you will be turned off by your wife or your wife turned off by you because you're seen more as the family unit (mother/father) than the attractive spousal unit from before. Oh, and the belief she won't leave you for another with more income is a universal thing, because it's a survival instinct and a want for life of comfort that drives these actions.
          Please, if this falls on possible deaf ears such as OP, may another anon make use of this wisdom. Be ok with being cheated on in your way, ex: you cheat too. Or just don't date them. Japanese pussy/dick/relationship syndrome is what you'll experience like they experience Paris syndrome.

            I want to believe she will remain loyal as she's back in Japan and we still text and call all day. She's really opened up with me that she hasn't had many relationships at all. Hopefully when I graduate I will have a good paying job and be able to provide for her. I did tell her if she finds someone else she should let me know to call it off.

      Seriously though, you won't get a "business job" without near perfect Japanese or good connections, not without already having a residence visa. You might be able to get a visa teaching (if you're native English speaker) or working in IT (doubt it or you'd be doing it already) and then finangle your way into a "business job", but on the whole it's about as likely as moving to Hollywood to be a waiter in the hopes of being a famous actor.
      My advice? Business supply work seems to be done remotely nowadays. Get a remote job if you can and alternate spending 3 months on, 3 months off, in Japan with your gf. If your relationship lasts a while as grown adults, maybe a spouse visa is in your future.
      This anon's first sentence is the better advice though.

    Your young anon. Explore the world, make mistakes, have some cool additions to your resume, get your heart broken. Apply for grad school if you want to look for work without being an English Teacher. Just put the degree on hold when you find work, or finish it through.

        You said you met this girl for one month, barely know her, and now want to spend your life with her. You’re so young, I don’t mean this to sound rude but this is incredibly naive behaviour but it’s a given at that age anyways. This just seems like a poor decision. There are millions of Japanese women too if that’s your thing.

          Yeah it is naive. I've had multiple gf but she's the first one I've genuinely felt deep love in. We've spent so much time and got to learn so much about each other. We are both in pain at the thought of being apart and we both want to make it work. Realistically maybe I should move on but damn I just can't

        It could happen, but take it from us older men that we all thought she was "the one" at 20. Usually marriages at that age as a man only happen because you and her went to high school together and your families get along. You're much more likely to have a better sense of who you belong with in your mid-late 20s as a man when the freshness of life starts to wear off and you start to realize what you actually love and hate.

        That being said, only go to Japan if you have a stronger reason to go there than just her being "the one", since she will lose respect for you changing your life for just her.

            If you do go, which you probably will, I don't blame you, if I was you when I was that age I probably would have taken the risk since emotion is still superceding logic at this point, but for the love of God, enroll in a university as an exchange student or get in a Japanese language program before booking the ticket, have SOME PROFESSIONAL REASON for going to Japan other than going just for her.

        ignore these cynics with terrible advice.

        The best thing to do is to get your gf pregnant - this will make it easier to get married and thus gain Japanese residency and citizenship.

          Your problem is you didn't get that relationship early on with the girls when they were there, the harsh reality we are cynically telling the 20 yr old is the fact that because they are already apart without much time between the two of them, she is probably doing her typical female nature to move on and forget her past.

        Honestly anon, it is everyday this exact thing happens. It just doesn't happen to you, as should be the case given your age but mostly your life experiences up to this point.

        So instead of saying don't do it. I say go for it, all out. But protect yourself and your heart.

        You get to date a Japanese chick, at least for a bit. So entertain it, however, really sit down and think about the last 10 years of your life. Now multiply that by at least 4-5 given a healthy relationship. That's an extremely long time to be with someone when you don't fully know yourself
        Did you know yourself when you were 10? Bet you thought you did, yet your desires still changed. Now imagine that with another. Who is also love struck with you at the moment. Will she change that 7 years down the road from making you food to yelling at you to get your ass up for work you're behind on bills so your living conditions are shit. Ooooor it very well could be the opposite and she's given you a free pass day because you got a solid promotion that changes y'all lives. No matter what turns out, protect your heart in the beginning. And the beginning when it comes to decades with a person can be seen as the first 7-10 years. Love her fully.

      You apply for a job you are qualified for and hope someone notices your application, or you get in touch with headhunters, or someone in the company refers you. Ideally a company known for sponsoring visas.

    at best a bachelor's degree lets you be an English teaching assistant in schools, which is much worse pay and less time off than it was in the golden age of 1990~2015 before the Filipinos ruined it

    Does she live alone or with her parents? If you're really interested you can probably ask her family to lend you their couch to sleep on rent free while you look for a job in Japan and get your bearings. Talk to her family every second you can. They can help you get your bearings and tell you if you're making a massive frickup. I've heard about "loud westerner" positions where Japanese companies hire a westerner because the Japanese are too non confrontational and having a Westerner in the room can help shoot down a moronic idea before it's been in production for six months. Talk to her and her family. If you want to marry this girl then have zero qualms about asking for help. The Japanese don't like being straightforward but if you show you're genuinely trying to succeed and not be a burden forever, then they will understand. If you succeed, then their daughter succeeds. By god TALK TO HER FAMILY.

      We are both in college. I will visit her in December and finish my last year. As of now I have an internship lined up for summer that will actually allow me to go to Japan. I might have success with an international company so I can live in both.

    Should I go back and ALT at 40? I am done with the west

      Are you good looking at 40, or washed up?

      It's a bit embarrassing to make ALT salary at that age, I think the only girls who would fall for you are the kind who'd have unrealistic expectations and get disgusted with you after a while.

      I personally don't hire anyone over the age of 35 unless they have years of real experience. You'd be starting too late in a field mostly dominated by kids willing to work for shit pay.

        Not him but I have the same question. I'm reasonably good looking (not bald, not fat) but not a male model. I have a lot saved from working us IT for over a decade, so I don't mind a low salary. I just want to hang out in Japan, have an easy job, and get a cute younger girlfriend.

            I mean, obviously I'm not confident, because I've spent the last 10 years staring a computer terminal all day, and getting ignored by women to the point where I'm considering moving to a foreign country just to get a gf. I've had multiple people tell me that "it was cute how nervous you looked :p" but I have no idea how to fix it. Maybe if enough Japanese cuties think I'm exotic it would boost my confidence.

            Anyway I was really just asking about the job interview. What should I say when they ask why I want this job?

              I have enough money to buy a house and retire (in a cheap area) in Japan. But I need a visa either from English teaching or marriage. I just want to teach long enough to meet someone and get married. Then either retire or work remote.

              That's a hard one. I'm still a Uni student but you can try learning the language. And about foreign girls, as long as you are confident with them and present yourself well (dress well, clean, well mannered) you should be fine.

                i do know some japanese. the problem it's a really hard language, and speaking japanese make me even more awkward/limited. I feel like I do better sticking to English, where it filters to women that like foreigners and I can say a lot more.

                I believe you can get permanent residency if you marry.

                Yes of course, but finding someone to marry is hard when you're a tourist

                One tip of advice to break out of the "Japanese fake compassion" is to show more interest in the girl. Talk about yourself, but ask/show more interest in her. Also, Japanese girls take flirting better than most American girls.

                thanks that's good advice. i have a a few female friends on instagram/line. should I just relantlessly ask them about their hobbies and interests? It feels kind of boring and pathetic though. I'm not actually very interested in her tastes in music and jdramas...

              you do know that the saying of if you can't get laid in your own turf, you won't get laid in a foreign turf is real, right? it's even harder in foreign land due to different languages and cultures.

              Need advice, I'm in Japan now (visa) and I'm thinking about asking out a girl I've known for about 4 years. We hung out a little in college but kept in touch sporadically during lockdown. When I came back to visit Japan earlier this year we hung out again and wandered around her town, it was nice. After I moved here we hung out again, so I think she at least likes me as a friend but the fact that she never messages me first along with the fact I asked her out in college and she said no is leaving me conflicted over whether or not I still have a chance with her now. I just don't know if I should be upfront with her the next time I see her or just wait for things to play themself out

              >4 years
              how about you ask her if she has a bf/partner before everything?

      I think it is best to be upfront. Don't do it as soon as you see her, but if you don't make the first move, she's definitely not.

        hang out 3 times, and confess to her during the 3rd time. then you'll be an official couple. that's the japanese way.

        I had more or less planned on asking her the 3rd time, I felt like the last 2 times we've hung out were more formalities since I was either vacationing or just moving in. But I figure I'll have a better idea next time I see her.

          10 days is nothing. You realize you need a visa to stay longer than 90 days, right? And you can't work on a tourist visa. You pretty much need her to marry you.

      I currently work in Japan for an America entity but I deal with Japanese corps and other workers all the time. Work is work and sucks well most places in the world.
      That being said it really depends, I personally find there to be significantly less bullshit in the jap corpo world than in the USA. Shit gets done and done well and I never have to worry about half-assed measures. On the flip side there are cultural quirks like promotion being age based and some holdover office culture like not leaving before your boss does. Also decisions in business take forever to get passed on. However this is something I don't mind because I want people to carefully analyze anything I promote and rushing to decision imo just shows a lack of give a frick and poor risk taking skills.

      tl;dr: Japan is just like the US in that there are shitty jobs and god jobs, it all depends.
