Career support overview

Our career support center provides various support programs depending on school year.

【1st to 4th year students】 We encourage students to start considering their future job and career goals from an early stage of campus life.

Students are given opportunities to participate in onsite training to maintain and increase their motivation and interest to be pharmacists while gaining an understanding of actual working environments. First-year students visit facilities such as pharmaceutical companies, health insurance pharmacies, hospitals, research institutes and blood centers and experience the actual pharmacist’s job themselves. In the 4th year, we hold a “job fair” where students obtain information about companies, business manners and a lot of other knowhow such as writing resume, interviewing skills, and developing career plans. And also they can learn the importance of self-analysis and the general attitude of being healthcare professionals. In addition, students will be given entry sheets and related materials for job hunting. In December, we invite around 150 institutions (Hospitals, health insurance pharmacies, etc) to participate in our job fair.

 

【5th to 6th year students】 Individual personalized career consulting

The career center supports students so that they can pursue their desired jobs. Specifi cally, we try to build close relations between this university and companies while collecting extensive information about the jobs available and exposing new opportunities. We carry out a job hunt survey with 5th year students and then analyze the results to assist them with their own particular goals. In addition, throughout the year, company briefing sessions are carried out in the form of a popular luncheon seminar series. The job fair held in December is organized by career focus. As for internships, we provide support all year round. Through a close cooperation between the chief professor of each laboratory that the students belong to and the career center, we provide continual support for each student’s employment search.
