Alex,

Unless you're coming on a working holiday visa, you should have a first degree. If you're in country and have a visa, some companies will overlook the fact that you don't have a degree. There are very few situations in which you can get by with a high school diploma.

Unless you're coming on a working holiday visa, you should have a first degree.

Does this mean that you should have a first in your degree ... i.e a 1:1. Im not sure how American Degrees work, but in the UK you get a First which is a 1:1 or A second which is a 2:1 or 2:2 depending on how well you do.

Is this the same as you are talking about or are we crossing cultural wires?

Hi there,

without seeing the job ad myself, I would imagine that it means they require you to have either a bachelor's degree (B.Sc., B.A., B.Comm., etc) or a valid working holiday visa already in place for the position. I would suggest you drop them a quick email to confirm what the actual requirements are. It could be a simple typo . . .

It is application time for the JET Programme. This program is a great opportunity to come to Japan and live for a year or two or three. The requirements are a Bachelor's degree or equivalent, must be 40 or YOUNGER, and you must be interested in Japanese culture. Yeah, those requirements are pretty vague, but it really is a great way to come to Japan. Most people are placed in Junior High Schools as Assistant language teachers. There are opportunities for people whose don't speak Native English, so you need to check with your local Japanese Embassy.
Here are some websites that you can look at for more information:
Jet Programme Home Page

On Official JET Website that may be more useful than the JET home page

click on your country for more JET programme information

Ok, The contract is for one year, and it is not guaranteed that you will get your placement preferences, but I find that they are pretty good about letting you get in the general area you want to be in. You can PM me if you have any questions about it.

The JET Program is one way to get into Japan, but there are no guarantees on placement. If you make a good case for location, stating what you want to study and how it would contribute to cultural understanding and the JET Programme, then it's possible to be placed where you want to be. One suggestion - research Saitama, Ibaraki, Chiba, Kanagawa and Gunma. There are cities participating on the JET Programme in these prefectures.

Good luck!

In The Japan Times Online there is this article about a foreigner who worked for a Japanese company, Mitsubishi, for many years and he has written a book about his experience. Here is the link: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fl20060617a1.html
The book sounds interesting, though this is the first I've heard of it, but I am sure it would give us a really good look inside working for a Japanese company.
Good luck everyone looking for work in Japan!
