For international students, there are many barriers to work in Japan.
I have been a former international student and have worked for Japanese companies for many years. I had worked as an HR consultant for Japanese leading companies for many years and I have always been thinking about how Japanese companies can more fully leverage the ability of foreign students.
I strongly believe Japanese companies should change how they see foreign students. And foreign students should also consider their career path from more long-term perspective. In order to fill the gap between Japanese companies and foreign students, career support is needed.
Our career support service for matching foreign students with Japanese companies, MIKATA, is designed to achieve this goal.

What is MIKATA

MIKATA aims to connect foreign students with Japanese companies in a true sense. We aim to help Japanese companies to fully make use of the ability of foreign students. For foreign students, we help them enhance the skill to work in Japanese companies, and assess their potential and ability using our own methodology. For Japanese companies who are trying to recruit global talents, we provide detailed foreign students information for them to find the right talents. We act as the “translator” between companies and students to help with communication and build trust relationship. We also follow up on the retention after the initial recruitment activity.
