Job-hunting seminar for international students

2017-1-17

On December 9, a job-hunting seminar was held for international students at the Global Communication Hall. The seminar was planned by the International Center and Career Support Office, with the aim of helping international students to gain a better understanding of Japanese companies, and to obtain the practical knowledge required for finding a job.

For the first half of the seminar, we invited the director of human resources at Nichia Corporation to talk about the corporate philosophy and what the company requires of the international students it hires. In the second half, we heard from a manager at My Navi Shikoku Career Support about the job-hunting system in Japan, how to write a résumé and fill in an application form. The 14 students who participated listened intently, and asked many questions in the Q&A session.

As well as providing an opportunity to learn more about Japanese companies and how to look for a job, the two-hour session showed once again the importance of the university providing international students with the strong Japanese language ability required by companies.
