Attending seminars was very useful. I found out how important corporate research was and what I should do at an early stage before starting to hunt for a job. I assumed that you had to have an advanced-level of Japanese skills to get employed, but discovered that it wasn’t just a matter of Japanese skills - that companies wanted excellent human resources. My worries eased after finding that out. I also learned some corporate characteristics unique to Japan – for instance that Japanese companies develop employees and that team work is important to achieve goals. Introductory seminars are very useful because they tell us how to get prepared for job hunting in Japan which is different from that in our home country.

I asked a consultant from the Hiroshima Support Center for International Students to check and touch up the resume that I had written for job hunting and received the feedback as you can see in the photo. I found out that instead of just writing your strong and weak points for your self-promotion, it’s necessary to write a self-analysis or relate it with your motivation for applying. I also learned that in the space where you write your interests and skills, instead of just introducing what you like, you should write what you acquired through your interests, and together with your present level you should write your next aims. I felt that writing a resume on your own was much more difficult than I’d imagined so the advices from the consultant really helped.

I got to know different companies around Hiroshima by participating in an exchange salon, where we could freely ask questions to the people from the companies. I felt anew the importance of Japanese skills to communicate properly with the people from the companies. The exchange salons gave me the opportunity to choose companies that matched my vision and was also able to learn that some of the companies offered opportunities for an internship and opportunities to actually visit the company. These events are very helpful for foreign students.
