Internships and Career Support
Thus, the program provides systematic internship training and support for international students who wish to find employment at Japanese companies.
Various Internship Programs to Meet Students' Goals
The program offers support for students to take part in job shadowing (task observation-based internships).
Medium-term internship programs
The program offers support for students to take part in PBL-based or OJT-based medium-term internship programs (for one to two weeks), which are meant to help students understand working at Japanese companies.
Long-term internship programs
The program offers support for long-term internship programs (for one to three months), through which students work as full-time employees and learn through joint research with colleagues.
Multilateral Support Structure to Make Internships Successful
During the period leading up to an internship, instructors hold a weekly Internship Consultation Cafe to provide detailed support for international students.
Study before and after
Internship participants are obligated to undergo training before their internships and to give a presentation on their results afterward.
Finding corporate partners
Since one of the goals of internships is to provide benefits to not only the international students that take part but also the companies that accept interns, we ask these companies for their cooperation and support for future internships.
Networking events for companies and international students
With the cooperation of our partner organizations and companies located in Shizuoka Prefecture, we offer opportunities to attend networking events with companies, international students, and company employees for overseas (former international students).
