Upcoming Events 
San Francisco Career Forum 2016 (Feb. 19 & 20).
This event welcomes students of all majors. However, we do expect there to be a particularly high number of companies hiring IT/engineering students. Therefore, we're offering even more financial support than usual to help these students attend the SF Career Forum in the form of $250 in attendance bonuses and priority selection for travel scholarships. There will also be panel discussions with experienced professionals to provide insight into bilingual careers and working in technology. The panel discussion is open to everyone. Learn more here
U.S. Career Forum (Apr. 9)
Unlike other Career Forums, the U.S. Career Forum features companies hiring exclusively for positions within the U.S. It is therefore a great opportunity for Japanese speakers with U.S. work permission (including those obtaining OPT by the end of 2016) to make use o f their language abilities and other skills to find work domestically. The event will be held in New York this year, and we will be offering travel scholarships. Learn more here
