Executive Job Opportunities in Japan


Japan boasts the world's third largest economy following the United States and the People's Republic of China, with leading companies including Nissan, Sony and Nikon. The Nikkei 225 technology index has a fabled history on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and therefore provides an interesting starting point the executive job hunters in Japan.
