Job Searching in Japan

Hey, its me Pieter deVries again.
Today I wanted to do something a little different.
 Up until now, I have been carrying out the Japan's Globalization series, which I plan on continuing, but I feel like there are also other types of information that I can give out.  So today I want to talk about Hays. Hays is a website for English speakers looking for jobs in Japan.
 Their services include pages about Asian salary guides, located here.
 They also have a job search page that allows you to choose where, what type of work, and what type of pay, located here.
The site requires that you register in order to use all of its services, but if you are interested in job hunting in Japan, that shouldn't be too much work for you.

The site is easy to use, and I will give a brief step by step of it, so you access the main site, you go to the job search page.  Because you have a degree in law, you check the box for law, and it send you to a page with a number of law centric jobs. At that point, if you are looking for a job that moves you to Japan, this job in particular might be interesting for you. Click here.
 The text on that page reads,
"Our client is a globally recognized law firm with a strong project finance practice. The firm has continuously been involved in news-worthy deals across a range of countries and jurisdictions. 

It is looking for a junior-to-mid level project finance associate with 2-5 years experience to join their thriving team in Tokyo. The role will primarily involve development and financing of energy and infrastructure projects. There will be a substantial focus on drafting and negotiating finance documents and in closing transactions.

The right candidate will have the required years of experience in this area as well as strong drafting and analytic skills. You must be a qualified lawyer with at 2 years of PQE. The ability to speak at business level Japanese is preferred, although not absolutely required. The firm will cover all moving expenses to Japan. "
 So, there you go, 2 years PQE, a bit of Japanese language and they will do everything for you.  This particular example was about Law, but there are a wide variety of different jobs in Japan if you are interested! 
So, don't wait and check it out!

This was another job hunting post by Pieter deVries,

This was in no way paid or sponsored by Hays.
