Requirements for obtaining the status of residence of "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services" based on work experience
One of the visas that allows you to work is "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services".
As a requirement for this "Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services" to be permitted, it is necessary to meet either the academic background requirement or the practical experience requirement.
This work experience requirement is determined by the content of the work to be done.
If the work to be engaged requires knowledge belonging to the fields of natural sciences or humanities, 10 years or more of work experience is required.
On the other hand, in the case of work that requires thinking or sensitivity based on foreign cultures, three years or more of work experience is sufficient.
The scope of work that requires thinking or sensibility based on this foreign culture includes "translation, interpretation, language instruction, public relations, advertising or overseas transaction work, design related to clothing or interior decoration, product development, etc. Businesses similar to these.”
However, even for the above scope of work, it should be noted that if it does not require thinking or sensitivity based on foreign culture, it will not be accepted.
In addition, university graduates are not required to have work experience if they are engaged in "translation, interpretation, or language instruction."
