We have collected questions often asked by international students regarding job hunting.
Although the reasons vary among companies, the following reasons can be given in general.
Among the companies planning to expand its business overseas, many wish to employ students from the countries and regions where they plan to expand their businesses and have them help the companies promote the business there.

If you plan to remain in Japan to hunt for a job, you must apply to change you visa to a designated activities visa in order to continue job hunting. You will need a letter of recommendation from your university and you’re permitted to stay for half a year and you can renew your visa after that period which will then allow you to stay for another half a year. So you’ll be able to remain in Japan for another year in total.
