I have already joined the company and worked in Japan, but my experience so far has been extraordinary (irregular) to say the least. It's been a month and a half since I moved from Singapore to Japan. During that time, the coronavirus was prevalent and due to an abnormal situation, all processes had to be carried out promptly after coming to Japan.

Message from the candidate:

When I got a job in Japan, I participated in the Japanese language no class program of Nanyang Technological University provided by ASIA to JAPAN (AtoJ). After that, in the process of getting a job in Japan, creating a resume in Japanese, Skype interview with AtoJ for desired occupation and industry, self-appeal, how to create a PR video, Japanese style interview correspondence Support will be provided. In the mock interview with AtoJ mentor, I was able to prepare for the day of the interview by not only preparing for the day but also taking measures for questions related to software technology.

The initial interview to get a job offer from a leading Japanese venture company was so quick that I was able to calmly work on my final year project and exams. Skype interviews are often more difficult than face-to-face interviews, so it took several days to prepare, but in the actual interview, I was able to calm down and respond to the interview in a coherent manner. The interview was conducted in English, so it was easy to convey my opinions and thoughts.

When I got the offer, I had anxiety and many questions about working in another country. By answering many questions through all the processes, I was able to resolve my anxiety and doubts. Working with Japanese people and many foreign employees at a cutting-edge venture company in Japan led to learning not only programming skills but also communication skills and working styles.

I have already joined the company and worked in Japan, but my experience so far has been extraordinary (irregular) to say the least. It’s been a month and a half since I moved from Singapore to Japan. During that time, the coronavirus was prevalent and due to an abnormal situation, all processes had to be carried out promptly after coming to Japan. Three days after arriving in Japan, I started working, and in the midst of a lot of confusion, I also went through the procedures for finding a place to live and the government office for living.
