Four Aspects of Career Support

Career Design and Job-Hunting Support

At the Career Center, we have a project known as “Design Your Future” (Mirai Sekkei). It is a career-support program where you can learn more about leading a fruitful university life and also your future career. In additional, the Career Center also organizes many practical seminars and provides information on job-hunting for students who are going to start their job-hunting activities. Many seminars are recorded and you can view them on Course N@vi.

Support for Internships

For a designated period, students can experience “working” by participating in our internship programs offered by our many partner companies, government agencies, and NPO/NGOs. By understanding organizational structure and actual work situations, you can discover in greater detail about your personal goals and career path. The Career Center offers support in providing information on internships supported by the University and applications on an individual basis.

Detailed one-on-one meetings

The Career Center staff hold one-on-one meetings at booths set up exclusively for such meetings. They closely support every student by listening empathetically to their concerns regarding employment, postgraduate education, study abroad, and career paths.

Career Design and Job-Hunting Information

The Career Center publishes two guidebooks: 1. “Design Your Future” – Future Career Design Support 2. Job Guidebook – General Job-Hunting & Employment Information. Students can pick up more information by accessing the Career Compass on Waseda-net Portal, our homepage and also by subscribing to our newsletters. The Career Center also has a wide selection of corporate brochures, information on alumni, employment data, and reference books.
