Hello, I am an American high-schooler, and I intend on living permanently in Japan after college. I have some questions for anyone who could give me some intelligent answers. For example, when should I apply for a job in Japan: before I get there, or after? How much money should I save before my trip? Will I be more desireable to employers if I have a certain degree (I intend on majoring in Computer Science or Religion.) Also, if I diligently study the language from now until graduation from college (which should be about 7-8 years) should I have enough proficiency in it to function effectively in Japanese society? That would include rigorous study in all aspects of the language, both written and spoken. Thank you in advance.
