Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can anyone participate?
As long as you have some level of Japanese and English language ability and are legally eligible to work in the U.S., you are welcome to attend. This includes students who possess an OPT visa or expect to by December 2018.
Q. How should I apply to participating companies?
First, you can view all participating companies' hiring information from the "Participating Companies List" page. Companies accepting applications will have "Accepting Application" above their name. You can easily apply using your CFN resume. By applying online prior to the event, you'll increase your chances of scheduling interviews.
Q. Do all participating companies accept applications online?
For companies who do not have "Accepting Application" above their company name, the most likely scenario is that they simply haven't begun accepting applications but will do so at a later date. However, some companies may choose not to accept applications online prior to the event.
To ensure that you don't miss an application deadline, we strongly encourage you to check the participating company details frequently. Also, be prepared to approach company booths on the day of the event with your resume in hand, as many companies may begin interviews on the spot.
