Very Easy Interview

Bilingual Recruit From Europe Interview

Bilingual Recruit From Europe

The process took 6 months - interviewed at IHI.

Interview Details – Interviewed in London. Very easy. They only want to know if you speak both English and Japanese well. They're not interested in what you did in the previous jobs or what skills you have because they are not going to take those into considerations when assigning you to a department/position.

For the second and last interview with the HR staff and your potential boss they fly you to the HQ in Tokyo. That one was easy as well. Bring water with you, they won't offer you anything for an hour and half.

Interview Question – There was no difficult or unexpected question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There's no negotiation. They don't even show you a contract or salary beforehand unless you ask. If you ask, however, they become confused because it's not common to do such thing at Japanese companies.
