How Much Does a Foreign Engineer Make in Japan in 2019?

How much does a foreign engineer make in Japan in 2019

If you are interested in entering the high-paying IT industry, now is the time to act. Understaffing and Japan’s tourism boom are creating openings – even for the inexperienced – in IT engineering jobs for foreigners.

The term “engineer” applies to people working in a vast range of jobs in Japan

It includes those qualified in a branch of professional engineering–like the mechanical, chemical, electrical and civil engineering disciplines–and those skilled in creating or managing a system or situation.

Job titles for engineering positions in Japan include software engineer, process engineer, project engineer, R&D engineer, sales engineer, web engineer (front-end, back-end, full-stack) and service engineer–just to name a few.

Since all industries that produce services, systems or mechanical products require engineers, there is a multitude of engineering jobs out there.

You don’t need to speak Japanese to be an engineer in Japan

Jobs in fields related to our new indispensables–smartphones, apps and the internet of things–are growing, and are expected to continue to do so.

A huge bonus for foreign engineers in this field is that because computer-programming language is generally universal, they will not be held back by a lack of Japanese language skills.

As Japan’s shrinking population makes it harder for employers to fill posts, more of them are opening their positions to foreigners who don’t speak Japanese, particularly in this area.

Engineers in Japan don’t need tons of experience

Japanese career-advice website JobQ (Japanese only) says that practical experience is the most important factor for companies that are hiring, for example, a web engineer.

But understaffing is so bad in the IT industry, that many wanted ads no longer even ask for experience.

So, if you can learn programming languages and skills, you can set yourself up for a system engineer or web engineer job.

And financially, it’s probably worth the effort.

As Japan’s shrinking population …continue reading

(Podcast) How a Video Interview Can Help You (and hiring managers!)

This week’s I spoke to Peter at JobsinJapan.com about their new Video Interview system. This looks to be a game-changer as it allows job seekers to go beyond just being some qualifications on a resume.

In short: Now you can show off your smarts and personality in a video designed to make you look good.

You will stand out to employers busy employers that do not have the time to interview everyone. Now you can get some face-time with them on your own schedule.

It is super easy, I even took one to try this out and it took me about 20 minutes. The video interview consists of a number of general interview questions (not specific to any one role or position) which you could expect during a live interview. Click a button and the question comes up, think about the response and the recording starts (multiple attempts per question).

As this feature just launched (beta), the support team at JobsinJapan.com invited only a number of people based on their profile. If you have not received an invitation, please request one at info@jobsinjapan.com.

You can hear about it this week……good luck with your job search.
