I’m a senior in high school, currently, but it’s never too early to start thinking about a career. This is kind of a two part question, actually.
First, as white, female, foreigner, what are my chances of being accepted there? (I kind of know this, already, but would like to get other opinions) Also, what are my chances of getting a job?
Second, speaking of jobs, I would like to teach English as a Second Language there, do my chances improve of getting a job? Basically, would the chose a native English speaker to teach English there over a Japanese?
Also, when I was talking to my teacher about how best to get the degree I wanted (I’ve looked, but couldn’t find an English as a Second Language degree. I found some online degrees, but I don’t want an online degree) and he told me to look into whether they (the people hiring me) would want someone with an actual English degree, or a teaching degree and a minor in Japanese or English or something along those lines.
Since this does pertain to my future, if you could give me some legitimate sources, that’d be great.
