Japan career conference 2023

We are pleased to announce that Akebono Foundation will be hosting an online event titled “Japan Career Conference 2023” on Thursday, June 8th.

  • Background of Implementation

In the Central and Eastern European region, many people are studying Japanese; however, there is significant room for growth in utilizing Japanese language learning for future careers. Moreover, we often hear many voices expressing uncertainty about how to leverage their Japanese language learning experience in their careers.

Therefore, in this event, we aim to provide firsthand experiences and insights from professionals working with the Japanese language, highlight the differences between Japanese and Central/Eastern European companies, and share actionable steps that can be taken now to effectively leverage Japanese language skills for future endeavors. Our hope is to create an opportunity for attendees to actively consider their career paths.
