Does degree matter on applying working visa? 2020/5/24 07:24
Hello, I'm really anxious about this. So there is this company that is willing to sponsor me a working visa but the problem is, I've finished a 4-year-degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. The job I'm applying for isn't a hotel or a restaurant, it isn't specifically some type of a professional job. It's about cleaning, sanitizing, folding sheets, etc. (Like a factory work) Will they deny my application for certificate of eligibility for that reason?

you need to apply "status change" from student to working.
if they want to hire you really, they will consult immigration lawyer how to write your application, and how to write the company's documents.

but, probably most companies don't want to be bothered by your problem, they want to hire persons who already have working status.

The process you'd go through would be "change of resident status" from "student" to one of the work-allowing, employer-sponsored resident status, to be precise, as you seem to be in Japan now.

I didnft know any company could sponsor a visa for anyone for a cleaning job. This sounds like the company hiring you is going to have to make some false statements about the nature of your work in their application.

If the company is a hotel chain and is trying to hire you under ginternational servicesh category, youfd have to be working for example at the reception of the hotel, using your knowledge about hotel services/management youfve learned in your studies, or utilizing your foreign language knowledge.
If there is no link between the job and the studies, your application for the change of resident status is likely to be denied.

If you are currently in Japan on "student" status, and are considering to stay in Japan rather than try to leave (as soon as the next flight is available), you might want to look for a decent job that is linked to your studies, but seeing how tourism is dead now, that might be difficult.
