Would it be difficult for someone to work at a hospital, lab, or factory in Japan even if they were "fluent" in japanese? I am a high school student currently studying Japanese and am interested in the medical field and Robotic engineering. The robotics industry is very prominent in Japan so I'd like to work there. But say in the medical field you were a surgeon and you accidently messed up because you mistook a conversation topic over the operation, as in, you took the context wrong. At this point I believe you would be fired but I mean before all of this, would you even be able to be accepted for that job in the first place?

From posts in the past , it seems there are some professions in Japan that you need to pass very difficult exams to enter. Your level of Japanese reading , speaking and writing would have to be very good to get a job. Let's face it , why hire a foreigner when you have Japanese citizen who can fill the job position. Many foreigners do come to work and live in Japan , so it is not an impossible dream , keep studying your Japanese and you can make it happen.

I think it would likely be very difficult to get into the medical field without being Japanese. Just like English I'm sure there's a lot of Japanese medical terms you would need to know. Even if you aren't going to be a doctor/nurse.

Don't you think including surgeons and factory workers might make the question too overly broad to be answered?

In what way do you mean "difficult to work"?
