Job Search Support

Preparation for Job Searching

First of all, lead a fulfilling student life. Try to be engaged in a variety of activities not only studying in classes and doing a part-time job but also doing voluntary activities or internship. And then if you are considering about working for a Japanese corporation after graduation, try to clarify your reason why you seek employment. Furthermore, prepare yourself steadily for job searching. We have seen many international students who were not able to attain the results they desired because they didn’t follow this advice before starting their job searching and taking employment tests.

What are you expected to do in preparing yourself for job searching? Toyo University carries out a number of job search support programs and business Japanese training programs throughout the year. Be sure to attend these programs and acquire skills. When you have achieved all of this advice, you can find it easier to be recruited by a Japanese corporation.

Job Search Activities Support Programs

Job search support programs have been carried out in each campus. Please actively participate in these programs according to the recruiting schedule.
In addition, the Career Support Office for International Students in Hakusan Campus (Bldg. 8, 2F) will offer Business Japanese classes, and so on to international students. Take advantage of these opportunities by all means.
