3rd Career Seminar 2017: Careers for International Students

The structure of the Japanese employment cycle and process can often be confusing and intimidating to foreigners. So to help the many international students who are graduating next spring, the 3rd Career Seminar 2017 will focus on helping them navigate the job market in Japan.

The event will include lectures on how foreign students can find a job in Japan, and what they can do to prepare themselves for a successful career. Speakers will share personal experiences and address the challenges of cultural differences.

There will also be a Q&A session that participants can engage in freely.
