Employment/Job Hunting Events


Job Hunting Guidance – For Parents

Aomori Public University provides job hunting guidance to parents in order for them to understand the current status of, and trends in the labour market. This is to prevent them from inadvertently misinforming or misleading their children on career choices.

Career Development Guidance

We provide career guidance to students at the beginning of the semester on self-analysis, industry information, and job hunting strategies.


Career Development Course

As part of our employment support efforts, we run career development courses twice a year for all students. The course is aimed at studying how to make career choices, forming a view on occupation, and the practicalities of job hunting. Graduates and working members of the society are invited to share their experiences and to provide some guidance to students.

Internship Guidance

The University actively encourages students to consider internships during the course of their study. Internships are opportunities for students to apply the knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom and training sessions to real-world experience. It helps to develop professional aptitude, gain experience, build professional network, increase marketability and strengthen personal character. We provide information on various internship programmes and guidance on how to apply.
