I can't help you specifically but by utilizing the much overlooked and underused search feature, I was able to find 411 posts that discuss, jobs in Japan, you can futher modify that search to better fit your needs..

I hope that helps some.

OK, tried doing a fourm search and found that Japanese is a must. Yeah know that w. Also viewed some of the other forums. Called a friend he mentioned the JET program went to the site to check it out does anyone have any experience with this program? Would it be good to do it after I graduate? I could meet people and try to found a sense of ground. Unless anyone has any ideas for business thing I would be glad to hear it.

Thanks for any information!

I haven't any experience good or bad with JET> Unfortunately I can't help you there either. However, I am sure there are at least a half dozen members that have some experience.

You could try a search for JET and see which names came up and if they don't answer on the forums, you could send a polite PM (private message) asking if then can at least point you in the right direction.

I just read that with the JET program it's least likly to teach in Toyko. :( So, that might be out of the question, but I don't know. Still I'll try to keep this up to date. Does anyone know of American Business that are also over seas?

Honestly, there are hundreds of American (or British or Australian) companies that have offices in Japan. Goldman-Sachs is one that pops instantly to mind. Same with American Express, any Airline, Xerox (now Fuji Xerox), Circle K, etc etc.

You could also do a search on google for "Jobs in Japan" and I'm sure you'd find a metric ton.
There's even a website called : "www.jobsinjapan.com"

I was having a dig at the phrase "have a woman". Makes the lady in question sound like a commodity or an appliance ;)

Have you seen the movie Lars and the Real Girl? :mrgreen:

Although saying "I have a women" reminds me more of Jake in The Blues Brothers, "How much for the women? ....... Your women. I want to buy your women."
