Job Hunting Rules3:Interview Taboos

まず、採用が決まる前に条件面での交渉をすることです。あなたが外国人の場合、ビザのスポンサーはしないということが前提なのに「プラクティカルトレーニングが切れた後、 H1-B ビザのスポンサーはやってもらえないのでしょうか」と聞くことは避けた方がいいでしょう。また、人材会社を通した紹介の場合、「人材会社からお給料はこれだけの額だと聞かされていますが、もっといただけないのでしょうか」と直接、会社側に聞くのもルール違反です。

First, you should not negotiate terms and conditions before the employment decision is final. In the case of foreigners, if you are under the premise that the company does not offer visa support, it is better to avoid questions like, “After my practical training visa expires, will you sponsor an H1-B visa?” Additionally, if you were introduced to the position by a staffing company, asking the company directly, “The staffing agency told me that the salary is this much, but can you pay more?” is a violation of the rules.


If you are wondering about visa sponsorship or salaries after the interview, please request your consultant to confirm with the client company. Your consultant will get in touch with the company immediately. Furthermore, if you ask too many detailed questions such as, “Will the company pay for the mileage and maintenance for my car when I come to work?” you risk making a bad impression with your interviewer. Do not forget that the interview is a chance to demonstrate your aptitude and motivation to work. Face the interview with a positive attitude!
