  • Want to move to Japan

    Hi, I am a 23 year old video tech student who will graduate soon. I want to move to japan but am wondering if there are any jobs in the video/tv/film industry there. The market is kind of flooded here, and I have always wanted to live in Japan. If any one knows of a place where foreigners can get a job in this industry, let me know please. And if not, do you need a teaching degree to be an ALT in japan?

        You need an undergraduate BA degree so that immigration in Japan can process your visa. Employer acts as your sponsor. Teaching degree not needed.

            Not to fan the flames of ignorance, but if it were not for foreigners, you would not be on this website. Thank you

                Any BA will do. Major is unimportant for teaching jobs. In the vast majority of cases, an Associates degree will not cut it, no.

                  I doubt you need much experience--can you swab a deck?

                    You may have better luck with a job opening at the Jedi Council.

                    You are a Jedi Knight, afterall.

                        Been answered many times before.....often by me....

                        portfolio/ connections/ experience/ connections/ skills/ connections/ language/ connections.....

                        Newbies not really wanted, can get them locally; skilled experienced techs have the best chance, living locally with a status of residence that permits work, language skills preferred....

                        And did I mention connections?

                          If the immigration need a BA for the visa, then what is this about then?

                          That just says graduated from college or university. Am I missing something else?

                            Not really. depending on the country you come from college can mean high school, junior college, a trade school or a university.

                            There have been reported cases of people with a two year degree getting visas but this is very rare. In MOST cases, a three year or a four year undergraduate degree is needed. Only immigration knows what their guidelines are, all you will get here is helpful advice. We dont issue visas, immigration does.

                              That gives me some hope then. I guess Ill apply and see. The worst they can say is no. You have been so much help.
