    Japan remains one of the most attractive places to get a job as an IT expert. There are quite a several companies that put up phrases like: “overseas applicant welcome. Most of these companies seek foreign employees basically because of the evolution of IT, the decline in nitrate and the backwards IT education in the country.

    Japan is a first-class country but has only been recently open to immigrants due to the decrease in birthrate and a greater population of ageing people. This has negatively affected the workforce as there are not enough young and vibrant natives to meet the demand of employers. The government has therefore offered pathways for foreigners to move into or visit the country as skilled or unskilled labourers. The most common pathway for long-term stays in Japan is the Work Visa route. Foreigners who wish to work and immigrate to the country are therefore expected to obtain a work visa from a Japanese consulate in their place of residence.

    While getting a job in Japan is not that difficult, one must have an insight into the way things work in their job industry before applying for a job. Most of the challenges come with areas such as; the individual’s level of education, work experience, and the demand for the field of work. The average monthly salary for employees in Japan can range from approximately 130,000 JPY (1,128 USD) to 2,300,000 JPY (19,963 USD).
