Good question. Thought they do prefer native speakers (highly prefer them, in fact) your proficiency might warrant you at least an interview. If you speak English well with proper pronunciation then you may have a shot. Good luck.

You don't need a converter. Just go into your language settings on your computer and change the input language. You'll have to add the Japanese pack and once you download it "ENG" will appear at the bottom of your screen right next to the clock. You click on this to change between English keyboard and Japanese keyboard. Word to the wise, make sure you have it set to QWERTY, otherwise your guess is as good as mine as to which key is what character.

Anyway, if you have English set as your default you will find an A at the right side of the task bar. This means you're still typing in english alphabed. Click the A and it changes to ?. which indicates you're typing in Hiragana. Kanji is automatically created based on what you type in hiragana, but you may have to change to the correct kanji via dropdown menu by hitting the space bar.

I know, this all sounds complicated, but it's pretty simple once you do it. If you need help changing these settings just do a google search for "how to type in japanese on english keyboard" and specify which windows version you're using.
