In the debate over whether Japanese business practices are converging upon those of other economies, little attention has been paid to the skills that are demanded of new employees. Through a qualitative analysis of job advertisements and work skill reports, this article compares discourses in Japanese and Anglo-Saxon contexts. It finds that, although official reports in Japan draw explicitly on Anglo-Saxon concepts, job advertisements offer a more complex picture, containing elements associated with traditional conceptions of the Japanese firm. The findings suggest that Japanese cultural traditions continue to have strong influence on corporate identities.
