Working in Japan
I was hoping to ask you all an individualized question after learning so much from reading all of your comments in this forum. I am possibly looking into working as an Analyst (not quite sure which area yet...but I hope to see what you all think about the respective divisions) in Tokyo and was hoping to get some information as to what I can expect because I am not as knowledgeable as many of you about Investment Banking. The key areas that I am interested in finding about is the salary, hours, and how much of the work deals with English in the case that I would be hired as a bilingual who studied in the US. I ask about salary because I had heard rumors that there may be a large difference in how much you earn in the States compared to Japan...although that might be for Investment Banks whose home base is Japan as opposed to elsewhere. And some additional questions that I would be interested in as well would be how to impress in the interviews as well as the taxes in Japan. I have dual citizenship in the US and Japan and was wondering what method there might be to avoid paying more taxes than need be. If anybody can help me out, I would really appreciate it.
