I have a student visa and I am a college student in Japan.
This time, I got an unofficial job offer.
Can I apply for changing for status of residence even when I am still a potential graduate?
You can apply for it if you can submit temporary certificate of graduate.
In this case, the approval of status change will be issued after you submit formal certificate of graduate to Immigration Office.
Of course, the person in charge of your workplace ought to know this, so they will tell you what you should do for it.
Please follow their guidance.
