Demand in Japan for ICT Jobs

In spite of its reputation as a technological powerhouse, Japan faces dim prospects in productivity and potential growth, owing to a declining workforce brought about by an aging population. Now, more than ever, a global demand for tech talent continues to boom and Japan is no exception, with companies setting their sights overseas for brilliant minds in the field of IT. Supported by relaxed immigration policies, the need for IT engineers is also met with the complexities of a language barrier and differences in corporate culture.

Job opportunities in Japan

With a worsening labour shortage, Japan’s technological advancement seeks to be at significant risk owing to its heavy reliance on a largely digital lifestyle. In this regard, its IT and software engineering sector sees nationwide demand in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Networking, Data Analysis and App Development to name a few, with most positions requiring bi-lingual capabilities.

Job opportunities in Sri Lanka

Students of LNBTI receive a well-rounded experience through our project based and collaborative culture including guaranteed industrial internships to supplement their degree programme. Many internships lead to full time job offers at prominent Japanese and non-Japanese organizations based in Sri Lanka, with appropriate career advice provided through our dedicated Career Guidance unit.

Job opportunities in Japanese companies in other countries

Working for a Japanese company can often be complex owing to cross-cultural differences in language and work ethics. Understanding this, students following their ICT degree pathway at LNBTI, will find combined language studies and soft skill training invaluable towards an easy adjustment to the unique style of Japanese business culture.
