Counseling System

The Career Office is offering a counseling service for job hunting, internship, matters on post-graduate study and any career related matters. If you have any concerns or anxiety, please feel free to come and consult your problems with our counselors. However, please also keep in mind that prior appointment is required.



How to Use the Consultation Service

You could make an appointment at the Career Office front desk or by phone from 1 to 10 days prior to your desired day for consultation. In case you are not in Japan and cannot come to the Office nor call for reservation, please send in an email to consult with us first.
