Hello everyone!
I'm from Portugal, i'm only 16 years old and I always had a passion for computers and japanese culture, so i thought I could combine them together.
I have a few questions:
1- Is it hard to get a job as a Computer Engineer in Japan?
2- Should I go to College in my home country or Japan?

Thanks in advance! :)

1. For most foreigners, I'd say yes, it's hard. Most jobs require a fairly high level of fluency in Japanese. Also, you need to show employers why you are a better candidate for the job than a local Japanese person. That means showing not just basic computer engineering background, but specific skills.

2. Since most universities here teach only in Japanese, I'd say get the degree in Portugal.
