Are there any Japanese speaking job opportunities?

Hello!

So, I have a friend who is here due to the unfortunate situation in Japan. He's native tongue is english, however he is very fluid in his japanese. Does anyone know of or has anyone heard of a place/company that speaks japanese? My friend would realy love the opportunity to get a job while he is here that would allow him to continue speaking Japanese...if possible.

thanks!

Nissan has the european headquarters in Rolle. Other than some similar large multinationals, perhaps tourism or translation if his qualifications are appropriate.

There are quite a few Japanese people working in tourism. Best places are Lucerne, Geneva and Interlaken. Your friend should have a look here: http://kirchhofer.com/web/index.php I know for sure, that they have a lot of Japanese customers.

There's also the Japenese Information Büro in Grindelwald.

If he is fluent in Japanese within business context (reading & writing), yes he might get a job within companies like Nissan or Sunstar (in Etoy). But if he just wants to maintain his speaking skill, then tourism would be the best bet unless he has other specific qualification in areas like finance, engineering etc..... His mother tongue is much more desirable language skill in Switzerland (apart from German or French etc).
