Q: Would I be considered for a position to engage in global operations if I get hired at a foreign company in Japan?

Even if you join a foreign company in Japan, you will not necessarily be involved in global operations. In most cases, for companies with global expansions, branches in Japan operate business and expansions for the Japanese market. You will probably be dealing with domestic and daily operations using the Japanese language. However, these types of companies proactively engage in personnel exchanges globally, and some of them offer their employees opportunities to transfer to other overseas branches.

Moreover, even if their branch office is in Japan, they could have multinational teams and execute their day-to-day operations in English. Those considering a job at a multinational company would be advised to do some research about how the individual company operates before applying for a position at one.
