Project Outline


(1) Program Summary

Since 2017, this program has promoted education and support for international students studying in Shizuoka Prefecture, who want to find work in Japan. The aim of this program is to promote the employment of international students in Japan.

 The program comprises three major elements:

a. Education Program

This program cultivates the various qualifications—basic skills, training, and experience—needed to work at Japanese companies and secure a job in the country. The education program conducts focused training built upon three pillars:
- Business Japanese
Develop practical Japanese skills through a combination of Japanese language education and career education.
- Career Education
Learn the indispensable basic elements needed to work and live in Japan.
- Internship Training
Get an opportunity to visualize their career in Japan by participating in an internship.

b. Employment Support Program

This employment support system helps international students find positions they desire at Japanese companies. It focuses on support in the following three areas:
- Networking events for companies and international students
Attend networking events with companies, international students, and company employees who are former international students.
- Internships and employment support
Find opportunities to participate in a wide range of internships for students just beginning their university careers or those ready to start finding employment. The students can receive the advice and support you need when looking for a job.
- Post-graduation follow up
Follow-up support is available for international students who have already landed positions at Japanese companies and for the companies who hire these students.

c. Industry-Government-Academia Partnership Support Structure

This program's activities begin from the relationships among universities within Shizuoka Prefecture, local governments, and private corporations and organizations, leveraging each of these entities' abilities and strengths. Through this, the program's aim is to cultivate the fundamental skills international students need to work at Japanese corporations, and to apply this industry-government-academia partnership to supporting the employment of international students.
