These seminars are available not only for students in the third year of undergraduate courses and the first year of master’s courses, but also students in all the other years, serving as good opportunities for even lower-year students to learn the latest business information.

Job-hunting preparation seminarTargeted at students of the third year in undergraduate courses and the first year in master’s courses, this is a comprehensive program to support students’ job hunting, covering “basic preparation for starting job-hunting,” “self-analysis and self-understanding,” “entry sheet strategy,” and “how to behave in interviews.”
In this program, participants strive to complete the preparation for their job-hunting when completing this program.
Mock interview seminarThis seminar includes an explanation of basic etiquette, followed by one-on-one mock interviews conducted with participants in turn. While one participant tries a mock interview, the other participants observe it.
To succeed in real interviews, you need to make sufficient preparation (i.e. accumulating interview experience in advance). If you attend the seminar and learn your strong points or discover problems to be solved, you will be able to calmly show what you really are in real interviews!
