Testimonials

Female Student

Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, 21

My impression for HirePlanner.com 's job fair was fantastic. They offer International startups, up to large Japanese companies. I enjoyed my conversations with employers, coaches and fellow job-seekers! I hope to join another virtual job fair next time. See you soon on the next opportunity!

Okayama University, 20

I gained a deeper understanding of what companies do, accessing information that I couldn't reach unless I participated in this event. It was also a precious time for me to reflect on myself through having conversations with HR employees about my career path.  

Waseda University, 22

Talking directly with the employers gave me a better idea of what kind of candidate they are looking for. This helped me greatly in assessing whether I would fit in their working culture. The coaching sessions also helped me prepare better for interviews.
