One of the questions I get asked most frequently is when I find a job in Japan. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know your situation. I don't know what kind of person you are. Are you someone who is willing to work a job that you don't like for the sake of supporting yourself? Are you someone who is driven and hard working and, you know, clean cut and presentable? Are you resourceful? Are you able to find ways of making money on your own? Can you speak Japanese? Do you have any other skills that you can utilize? Is it possible to find a job in Japan? Absolutely. Yes. There are plenty of job opportunities for people, regardless of whether or not they speak Japanese. Can you in particular find a job? Well, ultimately, that depends on you. When I went to a Japanese language school, we had a rule that for the 1st 3 months we were not love toe work. So during those three months, there was no way for me to legally work in Japan. But there was something that I had always done as a hobby. I would go to specialist of hobby collectors shops, and I would look at things that were exclusive to Japan. I would look at video games, but newest Pokemon release or Kingdom Hearts Final mix. Or I would look at Blythe dolls and pull up dolls. I would look at figures and the latest morning Moussa May or girl band goods. For the 1st 3 months of Japanese language school, I was collecting collector goods and selling them over eBay. I'm not saying this is something you should do, but I'm saying that when you're creative and you're resourceful, you can find ways to make money, no matter what. The second job that I've had that I've always kind of had on and off is teaching English. Although most people might disagree, English teaching is the entry level job for Western people in Japan. The pay differs depending on things like your experience, your present ability, your likability, your qualifications and obviously the company itself and what their policies are teaching English and a company is great. But What's even better is if you can manage to teach privately. I made a video a long time ago about the class that I teach privately. The good thing about this is that it's four times a month once a week, and that money comes to me directly. I also do small jobs, like voice narration for English tests. Let's go to the park. Where are they going? A pool Be the library received the park. Once you've built up a reputation and people know you are, it's easier to get into these other jobs, such as voice narration or hosting events. I'm seeing or, um, even modeling for a magazine. If you can speak conversational Japanese, then you should have no problem working in places like Mr Donuts and McDonald's. And, um, I've seen tons of foreign people working at these places. The problem is that the money is quite low. Bottom line, bottom line. What I'm trying to say here is Can you find a job in Japan? Absolutely. I think that it is possible it is possible for you to make money in Japan, will you? That is up to you. I know it's scary. Moving to a completely different culture where people might not understand you at all. But if you have the balls to move to the other side of the world, then you are probably capable of taking care of yourself. And if staying here is something that you want bad enough, you will make it work. My back still hurts, so I'm probably just gonna lie down and wait to die. So that's it. Talk to you soon. I talk to you soon. Bye.
