Career support

This April, after the new 6 year system was introduced, the sixth generation of graduates are out in the field. While it has been a very difficult job hunting situation for University students in general, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences graduates have been successful nationwide. For our University, the employment rate is 100%.
Graduates now are working in hospitals, pharmacies, medical companies and in the public sector.
We provide various career support programs such as‘ job hunting guidance’,‘ career workshops’, ‘job fair’, ‘pharmacy job fair’, ‘job hunting experience-based seminar’ and ‘workshop by occupation ’hosted by us or external organizations. In addition, the career center staff support students about finding employment or a school for higher education. Students can check each company or hospital in detail using PCs in the career center reference library. Past job hunting activity reports, newspaper articles about various themes related to job hunting and medical information magazines are also available.
We commit to ever improving career support for students and are always open to feedback that facilitates this ongoing improvement.

Career support overview

Our career support center provides various support programs depending on school year.

【1st to 4th year students】 We encourage students to start considering their future job and career goals from an early stage of campus life.

Students are given opportunities to participate in onsite training to maintain and increase their motivation and interest to be pharmacists while gaining an understanding of actual working environments. First-year students visit facilities such as pharmaceutical companies, health insurance pharmacies, hospitals, research institutes and blood centers and experience the actual pharmacist’s job themselves. In the 4th year, we hold a “job fair” where students obtain information about companies, business manners and a lot of other knowhow such as writing resume, interviewing skills, and developing career plans. And also they can learn the importance of self-analysis and the general attitude of being healthcare professionals. In addition, students will be given entry sheets and related materials for job hunting. In December, we invite around 150 institutions (Hospitals, health insurance pharmacies, etc) to participate in our job fair.

 

【5th to 6th year students】 Individual personalized career consulting

The career center supports students so that they can pursue their desired jobs. Specifi cally, we try to build close relations between this university and companies while collecting extensive information about the jobs available and exposing new opportunities. We carry out a job hunt survey with 5th year students and then analyze the results to assist them with their own particular goals. In addition, throughout the year, company briefing sessions are carried out in the form of a popular luncheon seminar series. The job fair held in December is organized by career focus. As for internships, we provide support all year round. Through a close cooperation between the chief professor of each laboratory that the students belong to and the career center, we provide continual support for each student’s employment search.
