So you’re a working professional, and you’ve realized that Japan is a country that you’d like to live and work in. Or maybe you’re just out of college, you love Japan, and you’re wondering how to get a job in Japan.
Whatever your life and career situation might be, there is one smooth way to get a job in Japan, that doesn’t involve having to check job boards or other resources yourself– RECRUITERS.
Top Recruiters in Japan
Recruiters are companies that work as matchmakers; matching employment needs, to client skillsets.
Recruiting companies work on a few business models– Some take a flat rate to hook you up with a job. Others take a cut of your salary. For some recruiters, you will not contract with the company in Japan- instead, you will contract with the recruiting company, and you will become a contract employee at the Japanese company (or Japan branch, of an international company).
As the processes vary from recruiting company to recruiting company- as well as from job to job- recruiter processes do go beyond the scope of this article.
What we’ll cover here, are the top recruiters in Japan to contact, who have the networking power and know-how, to hook you up with a job in Japan– of course, this is all based on your skillsets and Japan-based employer needs.
