Okay so here is the deal. As some of you know I work in a large Brokerage firm in the US, and have for about a year or so. I have basic to intermediate Japanese language skills. I have tried extremely hard to get a job in Japan working in Back Office Middle Office or Settlements. Well as everyone knows, who is going to take a person from the US to Japan when the company does not want to see someone they invested in leave because they don’t like Japan in a few months time. Well I have a plan that I think will work but needs some advise. However, there is one small problem. I do technically have a degree but I officially do not. In short I need two more Japanese classes to finish out my degree completely. The problem arose in college when they took away the Japanese language course in my freshmen year, one of the only reasons I wanted to go to that school. Someone is bound to say “why don’t you just finish the two courses then look at going to Japan.” Well in regards to that there is nowhere, where Japanese is taught except in the local Sushi bar, and the cooks are Spanish. Now my wife has all her credentials and has taught a little bit of middle school in the US and wants to teach in Japan. What are some thoughts on companies seeing my degree and that I only need two courses to complete it. Will the completely dis-regard me? When should I tell a potential job about my degree? Would it work for my wife to go over on a teaching visa and then me go over on a spousal visa and then apply for jobs? If so what teaching schools allow married couples to live together in a school sponsored apartment? Sorry a lot of questions I know, but any advise will help.
