Global Human Resource Program
Students can gain real work experiences and knowledge of industry expectations through various internship programs. Some companies are offering internship opportunities especially for foreign students.
Corporate Information Sessions
Some of companies visit the CSO to ask for information on recruiting talented individuals per year. We offer those companies to hold information sessions on campus. Students will have various chances to speak with representatives of highly regarded companies in person.
Once a year, the CSO holds a “Corporate-Student Mixer.” We invite representatives from various industry-leading companies. The G30 students present their unique backgrounds and future visions, as corporate representatives present their companies’ responsibilities and visions. The mixer includes a small discussion period for participants to exchange opinions and to ask each other questions. The G30 students are given opportunities to take a head start in developing awareness towards their careers after graduation.
On-Campus Job Fairs
On-campus job fairs for international students, Japanese students who have been studied abroad, and Japanese returnee students (kikoku-shijo) are held every year. Companies in various industries interested especially in Nagoya University students with international backgrounds gather in one place to give students presentations and to interview students.
