Purpose and features

This program aims to provide international students living in the Kyoto area with the aim of finding employment at Japan companies and organizations by providing them with opportunities to deepen their understanding of the business contents and appeal of companies and organizations in the Kyoto area through work experience, promote the desire to hire and find employment through mutual understanding between international students and companies and organizations, and establish international students in the Kyoto area after employment. For host companies and organizations, there are various benefits such as revitalization of the company by accepting international students, accumulation of experience in accepting foreign employees, and PR to international students.
