Working in Japan 2007-08-22
The number of foreign students staying in Japan to work after graduation has hit record levels. The improving job market and growing demand for translators and interpreters are being cited as the major factors. The statistics are generated from applications for a change in status from "College Student" or "Pre-college Student" to "Specialist in Humanities/International Services." A little over 9,000 applications were submitted, of which 8,272 were granted. For 2005, the total was under 6,000. Other Asian students represent the majority of those who found jobs after graduation, comprising about 90% of the total.
