If you don't push yourself
and be confident
you cannot find a job.
Voices from Students
Introducing the voices of students
who have learned business Japanese at Linguage Japanese School.
Listen to our Linguagemates about learning and various supports
at Linguage Japanese Language School.
I studied IT, Information Technology, and majored in Web Site Development. I designed websites and did a little bit of network engineering. I do not have work experience, because I immediately came to Japan after I graduated from university in my home country.
I applied to 3 companies in total. But they didn't work out because they needed someone at JLPT N3 level.
The third company called me back, I think because the position was in English. I tried the interview and successfully got the job.
When I couldn't pass the skills test, they offered another job to me.
During the interview, I also had an oral examination, where they questioned my on critical thinking, IT stuff, etc. Right afterward, they told me that I did good.
I passed the first interview and they called me again to take another test.
I didn't pass that examination because it was for technical engineering. Despite not passing I still got a job at the company.
I had been applying for a job at the Engineering level but when I couldn't pass the skills test, fortunately, they offered another job to me, that had opened up because someone resigned. The open position was in technical support and they put me there.
I got a bit lucky.
But, speaking of luckiness, I think luck is a result of hard work because I went to a lot of interviews, job fairs, and that way I could successfully found the right company.
