introduction

Sophia University and Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) are pleased to announce they will be partnering with HirePlanner.com for the organization of their next annual career event - to be held on September 16, 2021 (Thursday).

In light of health and safety precautions, the event will be completely virtual. More than a simple webinar or online company information sessions (会社説明会), this virtual career event will offer a unique, interactive and fun experience for students to easily engage with employers.

More than 15,000 students attend Sophia University and Temple University combined.

Previous HirePlanner events have been catered towards young Japanese bilingual talent; however, this new collaboration with Sophia University and TUJ aims to support students who are fluent in English and graduating before Spring 2023 (freshman and sophomore students may also attend to seek information for the future).

 

Students from Waseda University and Rikkyo University are also welcome to join. 

Companies that are open to hiring new graduates regardless of their Japanese level will invited to participate.

This event will be held in English.
