QUESTION: Has anyone worked at ING in Tokyo?


  1. Yea, ask away...

  2. There were 3 jobs that opened up for ing, are you talking about the one on jobmine right now?

  3. Thanks 1! I just wanted to know about life there in general, ie was pay okay/enough to suffice, were there lots of other students there, did you enjoy the work there and was do you think it'd be difficult for someone to become accustomed to life there despite not speaking Japanese?

    1. First of there are plenty of people working there that are not of Japanese origin, and have been there for quite a while. And yes usually they hire students every term for a year, so when you will go there you will find a few fellow waterloo coops.

      Ofcourse it does take a little toll on you that you cant speak japanese, but overall it wont affect your experience too much. Many people there speak english as well.

      Good luck!

  4. Don't get put by the window.

  5. Not ING but I worked for SONY in Tokyo. Was the best time of my life. That city is like nothing you've ever seen before. I would work from 9 to 5 and then explore the city till about 10pm on weekdays and then spend the weekends taking the shinkansen to places like Fujiyama or Fukushima or Fukuoka.

    The country is full of amazing people. It's best to learn at least conversational Japanese before getting there to get the full experience.

    I'll likely live there when I'm done uni.
