Job Hunting and Career Placement Support

Nihon University’s College of Commerce has a Careers Office to assist students with all aspects of their job hunt, including career guidance consultations and the holding of various job hunting support related events and activities. Career counselors are waiting and ready to help you by telling you how job hunting in Japan proceeds, correcting or editing resumes and entry sheets, helping with interview preparation, offering guidance on what to do if job offers are received from more than one company, and any other time you need help with any aspect of your job hunt.
The Office also has an array of useful job hunting and related information for students to browse, as well as computers for looking up recruitment information and reading relevant newspaper articles and/or messages from people who have already received job offers. The Office also holds job-hunting guidance sessions specifically aimed at exchange students.

The Careers Office will arm you with the information you need to succeed in your job hunt.
