The first step when job hunting is to look for the industry in which you want to work. You should first investigate the industries and job types available in Japan on a broad scale and grasp the relevant information. Then, if you find industries types in which you are interested, research them more thoroughly and deepen your understanding of them.

The period in which job hunting activities start tends to be earlier than in other countries. Job hunting activities have already started for those graduating in 2021 (third year university students). If you haven’t started researching industries yet, you should start soon.

Industry research fair for foreign students TOKYO

“Global leader”, operated by Vein Global Inc., is holding an industry research fair, with no entrance fee, aimed at foreign students. Inside the venue, there is an area provided exclusively for science students and an area for both science and humanities students, and you can listen directly to representatives from companies with a track record of hiring foreign students and to foreign employees.

The event is held in Tokyo, but for those participating from other regions, provided that certain conditions are satisfied, some transportation costs (5,000 yen) shall be paid in the form of a Quo card or gift voucher. Participation benefits are also prepared. (For details of participation benefits and conditions for payment, confirm the “Official site”).

You should consider participating if you are a foreign student involved in jobhunting activities in Japan, who “would like to work for a Japanese company” or “would like to know what industries and jobs would suit” you.
