About Japan Careers Program
Your life in Japan starts here.
Japan Careers Program was designed from the ground-up to guide and support talent from around the world who are eager to establish their careers in Japan, especially recent university graduates. It is our mission to bridge the gap between Japan and the rest of the world and to advocate for stronger diversity and internationalization in Japan. We work one-on-one with our applicants to help them find open positions at Japanese companies that are likewise eager to take on global talent.
Japan Careers Program is operated by Lighthouse Global, Inc., a recruitment agency founded in 2006 with the vision of helping Japanese international graduates find jobs here in Japan after returning home. We didn’t want to limit our efforts to only Japanese graduates, resulting in the formation of Japan Careers Program in 2019.
We’re no ordinary recruiters.
Our job consultants will work to match you to the best opportunities with world-class Japanese companies, all to help you start your international career. We have a formula that works. We will help you get your foot in the door at companies here in Japan, and guide you all the way through to employment. We offer participants support with housing resources, visa applications, and more. We also strive to ensure that our affiliate companies value a healthy work culture, so you can be sure that you’re being placed with a company that will value your well-being.
