help! course to study for my future job in japan 6 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
hello everyone as you may know students are to choose a course to study after completing their secondary school education. however I am currently having a huge problem as I have no idea what course to pick up.

I have always been interested in a IT job in Japan therefore, I would like to know what kind of IT job are currently in demand in Japan. For foreigner who is able to (speak/read/write)Japanese and English.

I am thinking about information security or computer science(electrical engineering) however I am unsure if its likely to get visa for such job.<<< <<(after searching around the forum)

lastly, I would like suggestions for jobs that are most likely for company to provide a working visa for foreigners - *(Any IT non-related suggestion works)<<(do state the course for it)as my main gold is to be able to live and work in Japan after getting a degree from a university in Japan. Thank you for your time! m(_ _)m ~PLEASE HELP ME OUT AS IM RUNNING OUT OF TIME Thank you!~

What you really want to know is what jobs will be available to you after you finish university in at least 3 years from now, right?
Hard to know.
Wiser to choose a course based on what will help you in your own country, as there is no guarantee you will get a job in Japan or not.

You are not listening.

There are no guarantees you can get a job in I.T. in Japan this week or in three years time.
It is an industry that has low demand for foreigners but lots of foreigners wanting the jobs.

So, doing a course only aiming for Japan would be unwise.

But look here to see exactly what jobs are available now: http://www.englishfriendlyjapan.com/gaijinpot

thanks I have decided to pick up information technology by the way it is always said that if there is a job that a Japanese can do,they wont hire a gaijin. I was wondering if it's worth picking up another language such as Korean while I study Japanese. would that increase the odds of me getting a jobs that a Japanese can do?

Maybe wait until you get your English level up to a professional level first (it is is not good enough for the professional world yet) - then master Japanese.
Once you have those two sorted... maybe then you can think about another.
