Working in Hiroshima

Joint Multi-Company Informational Sessions

At joint multi-company informational sessions, companies from a variety of industries and business sectors participate and set up booths, and they act as a space where job seekers can be provided with information on companies and employment.
Participants are able to receive information from a large number of companies in a single day.
In addition to being mainly organized by support centers, universities, regional labor bureaus, and the employment promotion councils of individual municipalities, such events are also hosted by companies such as those that operate employment assistance websites, such as Recruit, Mynavi, and DISCO, etc.
Of these joint multi-company informational sessions, there are informational sessions that are exclusively geared toward international students, as well as those that are geared toward Japanese students and general job seekers in addition to international students.
There are also “joint multi-company interview sessions,” which are similar in name to the joint multi-company informational sessions.
At such joint multi-company interview sessions, in addition to receiving explanations on companies, participants are able to meet with and interview with the people in charge of hiring. Participants are required to wear suits designed for recruiting purposes, and to bring their resume.
