Q: How should I start a job search in Japan?

The following are the two main ways to search for a job in Japan:

  1. Apply for jobs on your own through job search sites
  2. Consult a career change agency

Applying for jobs on your own through job search sites:

One of the ways to look for a job in Japan is to use job search sites to apply for jobs you like the look of. If you already have a clear idea of the kind of job you would like, job search sites are effective and efficient. On the other hand, you will need to manage everything like the interview schedules with companies yourself, which might be time-consuming.

Career change agencies offer a service that introduces various job offers, and matches applicants and companies for free after informing career counselors about the applicants. In Japan, it’s very common to find a job using a job change agency service. Applicants are not only introduced to new jobs, but career counseling is also beneficial for those who are trying to look for a suitable career. Here is a list of career change agencies:
