Important Notes

In most companies, you will be treated the same as a worker at the company you are placed at.

This means the company will have the same expectations of you as they have of their employees. Being late, taking days off without warning, dressing inappropriately and other behaviors that would be unacceptable for Japanese staff will be unacceptable for you too. Japanese companies can be stricter towards staff than those in other countries, so applicants must be motivated and stable.

In general your internship field should be related to your study or past experience.

There is a possibility of long-term employment with the host company, if both you and they want it.
