The Oxford Alumni Club of Japan is currently running a campaign to expand the number of intern host companies and organisations in Japan. Interns fly out to Japan for summer placements. This is part of the University of Oxford Careers Service Global Summer Internships Programme: https://www.careers.ox.ac.uk/about-our-internships/
The Oxford Alumni Club of Japan (OACJ) is pioneering an initiative to create internship opportunities and work placements in Japan for University of Oxford students. Interest is strong on both sides. Oxford students are eager to go to Japan for career boosting opportunities and Japanese firms are looking outwards in their recruitment drives in order to attract global talent.
Since April 2018, OACJ has negotiated agreements with over 10 companies to offer internships, work placements and full-time jobs in Japan to Oxford students. Companies include Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd., SoftBank Group Corp., Oliver Wyman, Matcha Inc., TEIT Inc., Asia Pacific Initiative and more. This project is delivered in collaboration with the Oxford University Careers Office (click) and many of the internships are offered on an annual basis through the Careers Office’s Summer Internship Programme (click) and are some of the most popular opportunities receiving a large number of applicants.
The first iteration of this project was featured by the University of Oxford in an online article, “Oxford Alumni Club of Japan internship success (click).”
