About this event

Harvard + Japan + Career Fair

Harvard Japan Career Fair (HCF) is a career fair hosted at Harvard, with the aim of connecting top level students from accross the world, with working opportunities in Japan. Directed by the Harvard College Japan Initiative, the fair will be held during a highly active weekend when thousands of students and companies will be in the area.

01

Agenda

The events will take place on the 8th of November. The HCF schedule may be subject to change. We appreciate your understand and cooperation.

Signature Theme

Booths Session ~Meet the Companies~

You can check in from 3pm. Booths session will be started at 4pm. For the career fair, we will provide each company with a booth and allow students to walk around freely, visiting whichever appeal to them the most. If companies would like to prepare informational brochures and company goods, table cloths, posters, or any other materials, it will likely make them more attractive to participants. We’ve designed this session to be an opportunity to answer questions, schedule interviews or meetings in the future, and get a feel for the crowd in a casual manner at students’ discretion.

Signature Theme

Networking Session ~Meet and Greet the Recruiters~

n this session we will have groups of students on a voluntary basis engage in groupwork for 20 minutes before rotating. Companies are free to move around and observe during this time. (We would like to consult with companies to decide the theme and nature of the groupwork, so please direct and inquiries or suggestions to us in advance.)

Signature Theme

Candid Conversation

For one hour after the Networking Session, we would like invite interested students and companies to participate in our Candid Conversation session. Our plan is to have representatives from participant companies join the groupwork tables and directly appeal to students. (The form this session will take is 2 representatives, each from different companies, sitting at each table and engaging in dialogue.) In this session, we would like representatives to – as the name implies – have candid conversations with students, speaking their mind and answering students questions frankly. As with the previous session, we will have groups rotate every 20 minutes.

Signature Theme

Sushi Time

For an hour after the Candid Conversation session, we would like to provide an even more casual opportunity to interact with other participants and company representatives while making and eating sushi together. In this way students get the chance to enjoy an important part of Japan’s rich food culture in a hands-on way, all the while making lasting memories with company reps and each other.
