【User's Feedback】I found a job at YOLO JAPAN!①

YOLO JAPAN is a job site for foreigners in Japan. You can select an area and work style to find a job that suits you.

In this time, we introduce an interview with user S, who found a job at YOLO JAPAN!


  • What brought you to Japan?

Because I wanted to learn Japanese.

I have learned about Japan in my home country and heard that it is a wonderful country, therefore I wanted to see it with my own eyes.


  • What is your current job?

I work as a cleaner at a fashion chain in Shibuya.


  • How many jobs did you apply for?

I've applied a lot!

I probably applied for about 40 jobs.


  • What is important to you in choosing a job?

It is important for me to be able to work in the morning and get transportation expenses.

I am an international student and have school in the afternoon, therefore I looked for a job where I could work in the morning.

I also choose a place where I could get transportation expenses because Japan is an expensive place to live.


  • What did you have in mind when you made your self-introduction video?

I was embarrassed at first, but I had to reshoot many times in order to be called for an interview.

In the video, I talked about my hobbies: tennis, anime, and manga!


  • What was the most difficult part of looking for a job or applying for a job?

I had never been interviewed in Japanese before, which made my first interview very difficult.

But I was not too nervous after the second time.


  • How many days a week do you work?

I work 5 days a week, Monday through Friday.


  • Are there any other foreign staff?

I often work alone, so I don't know the details.

But, I have worked with Mongolians and Malaysians, so I believe there are foreigners from Asia working there.


  • Have you ever had trouble communicating at work?

It's just a simple conversation, so there's not much to worry about.

I use a translation tool when I find it difficult to have a conversation.


  • What is your favorite part of your current job?

I think it's good that the salary is high and the work is easy.

It was so easy that I was able to learn the job in a week!


  • Message to foreigners who are trying to work in Japan!

Do not be worried regarding the level of your Japanese!

Working is fun and the best way to learn Japanese.

My Japanese language skills has gotten much better since I started working.

Please try to find a job at YOLO JAPAN!

I highly recommend YOLO JAPAN because it has more jobs than other sites.


For S, the part-time job was a good chance to learn Japanese language and culture.

It is also nice to get transportation expenses!
