Q: In Japan, when’s the ‘right time’ to search for a job?

The right time varies depending on the industry, job type or type of employment. For example, to work as an English language teacher, it is relatively easier to find a job in February or March. This is because the fiscal year starts from April, and companies and schools hire new teachers to start at this time. On the other hand, retail businesses or restaurants, which are often understaffed throughout the year, tend to not have a specific recruitment period. General trends show that people are more inclined to quit their job in March, September, and December than in other months, and therefore there are more availabilities at companies during these periods.
