Having recently completed the Work & Learn Program in Japan, I'm excited to share the profound insights and transformative experiences I gained during this remarkable journey.

Japan, renowned for its rich cultural heritage, history, and cutting-edge technology, has always captivated me. When I discovered the opportunity to become a part of Japanese society through this program, I knew it was an opportunity I couldn't let slip away. Little did I realize just how much this experience would shape my perspective and unlock new avenues of opportunity for me.

Japan boasts a thriving job market with a high demand for engineers, graduates, and diploma candidates. With three job openings for every eligible professional, Japan's hunger for skilled talent is evident. Salaries are globally competitive, and the opportunity to earn part-time income during study adds to the program's appeal. Joining the 18 month Japan Work and Learn Program presents a unique chance to master the Japanese language, engage in part-time work, and secure full-time employment in Japan upon completion.

About Work & Learn Program

During 6 months of the India leg I learnt Japanese language and was trained on culture and social skills. I also got trained on Data Science essentials which would help me during my stint in Japan. In Japan I had the opportunity to study under University settings and also work part time. The University helped me with a part-time employment. Participants can expect to earn between 1 to 1.2 lakh JPY per month through part-time work. The University also supported for a full-time employment upon course completion. Salaries for full-time positions range from 2.2 to 3 lakhs JPY per month or more, highlighting the program's potential for career advancement.

Work Experience: Bridging Theory with Practice

One unique aspect of the Work & Learn Program in Japan was the opportunity to gain practical work experience alongside my studies. The program design allowed me to apply theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom to real-world scenarios, enhancing my skills and competencies. I gained first hand insight into the Japanese work ethic and business practices through part-time work that I put in. Further, I could improve on my language skills as the part-time work gave me opportunities to collaborate and work with Japanese counterparts.

Value for money

Affordability is a key advantage of the program. The program costs only a fraction of similar offerings in the US or Canada, making it accessible to a diverse range of candidates. Inclusions such as tuition fees, Japanese language training at N5, N4, and N3 levels, six months of accommodation, one-year insurance coverage, visa documentation assistance, and part-time job opportunities for 28 hours a week ensure a holistic and enriching experience.

While the learning in Japan was undoubtedly enriching, it also presented its share of challenges. Adapting to a new culture, language, and way of life requires patience, resilience, and an open mind.
