On Saturday, 28 January, CLAIR was joined by the Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry to host the 3rd JET Programme Career Fair in Osaka.
The career fair was an opportunity for 127 JET Programme Participants seeking employment in Japan to speak with HR representatives from 30 companies, organisations, and universities looking for global personnel.
The morning of the career fair, to help address participants’ concerns and questions about finding employment, a job-hunting professional led a seminar on the kinds of global personnel sought by Japanese companies and about the job-hunting process in Japan. JET alumni working in the Kansai area also spoke of their experiences with looking for work in Japan during the lecture. Afterwards, the JET participants in attendance visited company booths, participated in mock interviews in Japanese, and received further consultation from a job-hunting professional and JET alumni.
