This post is also available in 日本語

“The global agent placement (Global Agent)” of Mynavi offers free supporting service of the job search in Japan to foreign students and Japanese students who have studied overseas who have desire to work in Japan.

At this time, in addition to the “Mynavi Job Seminar for Foreign Students” we introduced previously, two other events are scheduled: “The A to Z of getting a job in Japan” and “The A to Z of getting a job in Japan [A symposium with foreigners working in Japan]”. Both events are for foreign students who wish to work in Japan, who are currently studying in Japan and have the Japanese language skill enough to carry a day to day conversation.

“The A to Z of getting a job in Japan” is a seminar to learn the particular way of the job searching in Japan and the corporate sense of values, as well as the means to find jobs for foreign students in Japan. This one-hour seminar is held on a monthly basis, but a special symposium is scheduled in February. The attendees of the seminar and the symposium are limited to 10~20 people which makes it easier to ask questions. You can participate in casual attire but don’t forget to bring writing utensils. There is no prerequisite preparation.

Who should benefit from these events

  • Who has concern about the Japanese way of job searching in Japan which is different from that of one’s home country.
  • Who doesn’t know how to collect information.
  • Who wants to learn seriously with a small group.
