Why international job seekers choose Japan as their work place?
The reasons why foreigners, currently staying in Japan, continue their working life
Those ,who are working now in Japan, have studied in universities of Japan. While they were learning and studying in universities, their interest in Japanese culture and traditions gradually raised.
In the olden days, Mount Fuji, Sushi and Geisha are the answers when someone was asked what is Japan. Nowadays, animes cartoons and Japanese foods become additional answers of this question. More and more international students come to Japan because Japanese modern culture catch their minds.
On the other hand, they are familiar with aircons, TVs and other electronic devices which are products of Japan. Therefore learning advanced technologies in Japan is the another reason to come to Japan.
Especially, safety, kind and friendly Japanese people, their hospitality and modern medical treatments and social insurances are the attractions of Japan for other people to work in Japan.
Moreover, there are other reasons why Japan is popular for international job seekers. Example; A person worked as a volunteer of social welfare team in Japan when Japan was hit by earthquake in 2011. Then he was interested to continue his life and tried to settle down in Japan. During these days, natural disasters like earthquakes, Typhoons frequently threaten Asia nations. So there is no wonder that increasing number of people would like to work for social welfares teams whereas some come to Japan to learn new and advanced technologies and return their native land.
Nowadays, there is an increasing number of companies in which they use English to communicate within the organizations. As big company like Rakhaten company, English is chosen as a language for office use. There is an increasing trend of companies recruiting international students in Japan according to research papers. Not only this will improve the language skills of office staffs but also develop the qualities of staffs by working together with diverse thoughts and different people. If staffs are not good at Japanese, the managers of the company create suitable environments and give an opportunity to learn Japanese within the office. Companies ,formerly recruit people who can speak Japanese and value this skills more than other skills, are now letting integrate talented new blood who can only communicate with English. So the former office staffs have a chance to learn English and promote their skills, talents and broaden their horizons.
It seems Japanese companies only recruit and let integrate those who can speak Japanese but in reality, more and more companies recruit talented people though they can not speak Japanese well.
Therefore, modern Japanese companies are now composed of talented international people with innovative ideas.
That's why high job opportunities in Japan is another reason for international job seekers to work here.
The person namely ‘A' is now 30 years old and he is from Myanmar. He studied in Technology university and got graduated with credits. Then he started working for IT company in Myanmar but unfortunately, his father passed away soon. So he had to quit this job and managed his family business .
While he was managing his family business, he got depression and then again he decided to continue his IT technician life. In these days, there were low job opportunities in Myanmar and he was with two options. One is to work for the government and the latter is to go to Singapore and accepting new challenges.
So he became confused and could not decide which way to follow. Fortunately, he got a chance to work for some Japanese IT companies and continued his IT technician life in Japan.
Between Myanmar and Japan, there is a strong bond long time ago. So there is no wonder that people from Myanmar know about Japanese culture and living style. Since they were young, they were familiar with unique and strict rules of Japan, the way Japanese people obey these laws and high quality electronic devices which are produced in Japan.
New Japanese business company, IT venture businesses, old Japanese style overtime service, unique communication rules are the factors which attract international job seekers to work in Japan. Moreover, friendly atmosphere within the Japanese companies, family spirits between the members of the Japanese organizations and the way that the staffs are always ready to help others when they are in troubles are another factors that catch the minds of international job seekers.
