Q. What sort of jobs are available?

A.Non-Japanese personnel are active in a diverse variety of job categories (which are classified depending on the content and tasks involved in the job). Depending on the employer, in some cases a single employee may take on numerous jobs―for example, overseas sale staff may also be involved with marketing. Conversely, in some cases numerous employees may be responsible for a single job, with the details of the work changing whenever the job is particularly busy or difficult, such that the whole organization is involved in performing the job. When applying for a position, don't judge the type of work involved simply by the job category or title; instead, it's important to confirm the content of the job in concrete terms.
