Hello everyone, I'm new to posting on these forums but have been a lurker from time to time.
I visited Japan 2 years ago and I really loved my time there. Since then I have been thinking on relocating to Japan, hopefully by 2012 right before the world ends. I know my time in Japan during a vacation will be different from what it would be like if I lived there.
My main concern is basically two things, being able to have a visa and a job. I can't stay in Japan without a visa and I need a job so I can earn a living. What worries me is my ability to accomplish both of these things.
What I have under my disposal are a BBA in Accounting and currently working on a second degree on Computer and Web technologies (basically computer and web programming and design) that should be done next year. I speak native Spanish and English. My Japanese is very basic, I have really good pronunciation but my vocabulary is limited and so is my kanji knowledge. I am working on improving my Japanese.
As far as a job goes, I would be fine doing pretty much whatever as long as I can earn a living. I would teach English or Spanish or both, I would work in a job that utilized my studies, or doing some other job. But what is scary to me is actually being able to find and get these jobs. On top of that, how do I go about to find and get said job, if I were to get it, if I don't have a long term stay visa?
I would love some input, I figured this would be a good place to ask. I will answer any questions if needed. Oh and if it matters, I live in the United States.
