For International Students

Foreign Student and Business Exchange Salon

Why have an Exchange Salon?

Many Japanese businesses employ foreign students to help in their overseas-related projects. This includes many businesses in Fukuoka. However, due to the relative lack of recruitment information available online from these companies, perhaps some international students give up on their hopes of finding a job in Fukuoka or in Japan.
The purpose of this Exchange Salon is to allow international students, in casual clothing, to meet and converse with people from interested companies, and to deepen mutual understanding in the process. Unlike job interviews, the Salon is not held for the sole purpose of facilitating recruitment.

- I learned a lot from talking with current employees. It felt more like a study group than an exchange salon.
