My job search in Japan with ASIA to JAPAN
I first learned about ASIA to JAPAN through a WeChat subscription account on WeChat. After reading the success stories of predecessors, I was eager to give it a try, so I decided to sign up. When I was filling out the application form, I recalled many of my achievements and regrets from my college days as the application form guided me. Such a review is necessary at the point of transition from student to a social worker. The application form is similar to the Entry Sheet of many Japanese companies, but it is really efficient to have one form with multiple entries. In addition to the entry sheet, we also need to record a PR video for the official talent pool for companies to select.
After waiting for a while, I received 4 interview invitations from companies. It’s worth mentioning that YAMAHA Motor’s written test even allows you to choose your language, so it’s really a humane and international company! Before each round of interviews, ASIA to JAPAN held an Orientation and a Mentor interview, the former of which was a brief introduction to the company, and the latter of which was a “precise job coaching class”. I remember Mr. Okumura’s speech was very clear and insightful, and he guided me from speech logic to language expressions, which benefited me a lot! Finally, while completing the last few final exams of my student career, I was able to complete all the interviews in a very exciting way and got the offer of my choice.
The job search under the epidemic was not easy. Unlike before, I completed the entire written interview and meeting online from the other side of the world. Even though there was a time difference of 8 hours with Japan, communication and interviews were challenging, but ASIA to JAPAN staff were very warm and friendly, not only in terms of cultural and language differences, information on companies applying for jobs, interview skills to provide me with a lot of help, and after the interview was over, they would also promptly follow up to congratulate or comfort. They were all like big sisters and brothers! With their help and witness, I am going to enter a new journey.
Job hunting is a two-way process, but all choices are based on understanding. ASIA to JAPAN provides a platform for job seekers and companies to get to know each other, as well as simplifying the complicated process for new students to join the company and making communication efficient. Today, Japanese companies still have a high demand for foreign workers and are becoming more welcome of staff diversity, making it a good place to work. If you are thinking of working in Japan and are worried about finding a job, try ASIA to JAPAN and you will definitely get something out of it.
