On November 5, an agreement was signed by Sophia University and Tokyo Employment Service Center for Foreigners (Hello Work Shinjuku) and the head of the Shinjuku Hello Work Office, Yasushi Nagano visited the Yotsuya Campus for the signing ceremony.
This is the first agreement to be signed here in Japan aiming to support foreign students seeking jobs in the domestic job market. This allows consistent support for career planning of foreign students from the early stage if their wish is to continue working here in Japan after their graduation.
Shinjuku Hello Work Office will
- dispatch experts to lecture job-seeking processes / basics in Japan
- inform internship opportunities for foreign students at Japanese corporations
- organize career forums
- support foreign graduates (within a year from graduation) for their job seeking and steady employments.
Especially information related to 1, 2 and 3 above, Sophia University will make sure to be keen on informing our foreign students and to be aware of those individuals who are determined to work in Japan in order to provide attentive support.
