On Saturday, December 1, 2012, approximately 30 alumni members took part in a career advising seminar held for APU students. December 1 is the date from which Japanese businesses generally begin their recruitment process. Over 100 APU students attended the event that hosted the inaugural Chairperson of the APU Student & Alumni Association, TAKEMOTO Shinya, the current Chairperson, YOSHIDA Seitaka, and Deputy-Chariman, HUANG Chu Chun. We offer our thanks to the many alumni members who volunteered their time and offered their words of advice and encouragement to our students. The event began before midday and ran well into the night.
