My wife just told me that she met a guy from Singapore living in Tokyo. He's an IT expert, married to a Japanese, speaks fine nihongo and hasn't been able to procure a job in months. So I'm not sure if they just don't hire foreigners or if the entire sector suffers from stagnation.
I agree. My brother-in-law (my god, I've got a Japanese brother-in-law.... that's weird), works in IT - it seems a lot of companies are trying to save money by cutting their staff (rather than other more long-term means).Originally posted by Erik
Based on that article, I'm guessing companies are just deciding to not bother hiring the people they need, to save money.
