I would really appreciate some advice and or information.
Right now I'm in College and will partially finish a two year program in December. I will have to return to night school to pick up 3 courses (so far) after I finish full time studies.
A bit about my background. I worked for 10 years as an analyst for an IT consulting company but have never finished a college program. Right now, my girlfriend lives in Japan and we are planning on me moving there and getting married. I know that a BA is needed to get a work visa in Japan, but since I will be getting married when I get there, will the college diploma be beneficial in getting an English teaching position in Japan?
I'm asking because as it stands now, it will be at least another year before I can complete the diploma (a diploma that I will not be using). So I'm thinking about quitting college and getting a full time job to save money to move to be with my girl. I do plan on taking a TESOL course before I leave though, but I wanted to know if companies in Japan will frown on the fact that I didn't even finish college. And will it be easier to get a position with the diploma?
