However, the EJU is now used for this purpose. It replaced the JLPT in 2002:

However, you are able to take the JLPT internationally, but most people would have to travel to take the EJU, the JLPT is still taken by foreign nationals as a method of being able to prove general Japanese language proficiency.
I, for example, am using it as a qualification equivalent when I apply to intermediate Japanese classes at university next year. They usually ask that the student has completed a GCSE or A-level in Japanese, but they said that my JLPT should be fine. They assess everyone with an oral exam before acceptance anyway.
It's just another thing to put on your CV. It could possibly help you get a job if the company has strong ties with Japan, etc. and your ability could help with the business trips they take there, or if you wanted to work in a Japanese supermarket But, if you wanted to get a job that purely focusses on Japanese you might want to consider taking a degree course or similar instead.

Please don't use other people's threads to ask a new question. Use the "New Topic" button on the forum page.
Now, RE: JLPT4
There's no way to know if your university experiences will get you through JLPT 4 without having some of the curriculum to examine. I'd hate to say "Yeah, you'll be able to pass" only to find out.... you can't. Especially since the test costs money.
I will say that the JLPT 4 is apparently ridiculously easy. I've not actually taken the test myself, but I've done some of the past tests on my own time and found them pretty darn simple. If your program is even halfway decent, I would think that in 3 semesters, you "should" have enough to pass JLPT 4. But again, that's based on a whole lot of nothing.
