The Hiroshima University African Students’ Association is pleased to announce that it will be holding “The Job Hunting Preparation Seminar for African Students” for its members and others interested in finding a job in Japan.

In this seminar, an African student and an African postdoctoral researcher will report on experiences of their internship and job-hunting activity. The speakers will include members of staff from four global companies with experiences of employing international graduates from Hiroshima University as interns or permanent employees. Staff from Hiroshima University’s careers department will also join the event to explain how to prepare for and note the key points of job-hunting activities in Japan. After the reports and other information, there will be time for the participants and company employees to network freely.
