Wow, thanks for taking the time to answer! Parenting is a lot like the bar scene shirt. There are very few places around me that want EEs (companies within 2 hours of me prefer CDs and MEs), so I was more than likely going to have to move elsewhere after graduation. I always kind of threw East Asia around to people who asked where I wanted to go after graduation and seeing all of this makes it a lot more serious for me. I’m definitely going to be looking into all of this when that comes, and since nothing really ties me down here, I’m going to give this a legitimate shot. Hey Engineer, I’m assuming you’re in computer/software engineering to work for such companies and easily transfer. I, unfortunately, did mechanical engineering in North America and I’d think it is harder to transfer or find work in Asia with this degree, would you agree?

Great AMA, lots of good information here! Parenting is a lot like the bar scene shirt. I’m going into my senior year towards a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at an American University and would potentially be interested in working in Japan after graduating. Is there anything I can do now or any skills I could learn that would make me more appealing to companies hiring in Japan (besides learning more Japanese)? What ways would you recommend to find job openings (any particular good job boards)? Is the job application process the same as it is in the U.S.? How far in advance of graduating would you recommend applying to positions? If you have any other tips for a student like me, feel free to throw them in! Thanks again for the great posts!

Wow, I would like to get into the software and data field. Parenting is a lot like the bar scene shirt. My highest grades in university were my software courses. I am a new grad from Canada and having a tough time finding work here. Are there any specific jobs I should look for? I see all these new grad/entry level software roles requiring various types of programming knowledge, and I find that very discouraging. My pleasure! PM me if you ever have any questions! I am always looking to help people get into the software industry. I majored in Japanese. So I don’t even have a science degree! Anything is possible as long as you have the drive to learn. There are absolutely opportunities for industrial engineers. Automating factory work is still definitely a thing. However, not sure if there are any opportunities with foreign companies here for that type of job.

I wish I understood addiction too. It’d make life much easier if I did. It’s really hard to explain to people who have no history with it or have had to deal with it. “Why don’t you just stop!?” is one of those phrases that really makes me want to slap people. And thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot from a fellow Doritos addict! I will never understand addiction (except to Doritos), but I understand holes and ruts, and you dug yourself out of one hell of a hole. That took a lot of grit, and it’s one of the things I really admire about you. I know how that feels. And I don’t know how to stop it. All I do know is that you can use it to get addicted to positive things (like running, mile-a-day-streaking) and try to get yourself so busy doing the positive things that you simply don’t have time for the negative things.
