Career Education


The Shizuoka Career Development Program for International Students focuses on providing the skills indispensable for finding employment and working in Japan. One of the ways it does this is career training.

Many international students have no experience finding work in Japan, and they may be interested in specific companies. However, finding a job with the only motivation being some vague desire to work in Japan can be quite the struggle.
We would like students to face their job hunt with a fundamental awareness of what it means to work, as well as with sufficient understanding of how Japanese students understand work and what it means to work in Japan, a different country.
In addition to raising such awareness, this program provides career training and employment guidance appropriate to students' university year, so that they can understand the characteristics and culture of Japanese companies and the social system in Japan, a country that is both unique and different from their home country.
All students: 
Program enrollment up until job placement
Career training taught by lecturers dispatched from companies
Lectures by graduates who are working in Japan
Undergraduate students Graduate students
Company tours
Career Design I: How to Think about Life and Career
Internship career guidance
Career Design II:

Career design/internships
Overall, the program provides systematic career training and employment support so that students can effectively use their four years of undergraduate education and two years of graduate school.
It also provides individual support so that international students consciously prepare for finding work in Japan and create their own career plans.
The program features education and support that is tailored for every international student.
This promotes reduced doubts about working in Japan and greater understanding of Japanese commercial practices.

Furthermore, by observing presentations and providing feedback, the Japanese instructors and career trainers work together to promote employment from various perspectives.
