Career Consultation

Career Consultation

I-HoP provides career consultation in English for Doctor Course and Postdoc researchers from abroad.

We can discuss about any aspect of your business career search. For example:

・ Exploring careers
・ Writing or revising your resume
・ Interviewing techniques or practice interviews
・ Exploring internship possibilities
・ Finding a job and negotiating offers

*On the Academic career, your research superviser is your primary source of information. We can provide general information on the Academic career.

Each I-HoP career consultation takes an hour for the first meeting. To make the meeting productive and efficient, the following career action steps may be a useful tool to synchronize your thought process with us. However, you do not have to prepare all the information to come to the consultation.
