A full list of Japanese companies operating in Ireland is available through the IDA (Irish Development Agency) website, www.idaireland.com . Use the “Company Search” feature and enter “ Japan ” as “country of origin”. As might be expected, vacancies in these companies tend to be quite competitive and will most likely be advertised in the national press. Occasionally, Japanese employers contact the Embassy of Japan directly to advertise vacancies. In this case, the JET Co-ordinator will send out an e-mail regarding the position to all ex-JETs registered with the Embassy.
