Exactly what I was looking for!

Before graduating university, my goal was to do internship in order to have more work experience. Although, my skills were limited, ICC was able to help me get a job related to my field of interest. The company that I worked for was exactly what I wanted and helped me gain a lot of experience that would have been difficult getting on my own. Looking for internships in Japan can be very challenging especially from abroad. Thankfully ICC was able to provide many options faster than I thought.

Doing an internship in Japan also helped me gain experience in a completely different work environment. I feel like after working there I can work almost anywhere. I learned things that I wasn't even expecting to. It also pushed me to work harder than usual since it was in a foreign environment. The staff from my job and ICC were both really nice! I enjoyed working there a lot and am really glad I did this internship program. The monthly events were actually really fun! I made really good friends from those events and was able to explore Japan with them outside the ICC events

I also loved living in Tokyo! Tokyo is a very convenient, safe and beautiful city. It was a perfect combination of traveling and working in my career. I would definitely recommend this program! It really changes your life.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I feel like I would try to learn more Japanese. It is hard when you don't know much and if you want to make more friends, knowing Japanese is definitely a big plus!

Helped with personal growth

This program really helped me grow as a person within the professional world and the staff helped me easily get a job and kept communicating with me the whole way. The staff at my workplace were kind and the work I did felt right for the kind of person I am. Staff from ICC also helped find accommodation within the Tokyo area very close to my workplace. I had little issues with my accommodation aside from cleanliness of the house however that is what comes with choosing a share house I think. The only complaint I have is the price to pay for the services was half my scholarship which didn't feel like it exactly worth what I got out of it. I would not recommend if you are limited on funds. Aside from that it was a good experience and helped to build my resume.

Great Experience in Tokyo

I had a great experience through IIJ!

As a graduate student in a pure STEM discipline, I had been in the process of searching for internship opportunities outside of academia. I didn't think looking for international opportunities would even be possible, but I decided to give it a chance after coming across IIJ. While the matching did take some time, IIJ kept me informed during the entire process and I felt prepared for my interviews.

This was my first time traveling out of the continental U.S. and it pushed me far out of my comfort zone. Despite this, I had a blast and, thanks to IIJ, I never felt alone. Settling in during the first week was the hardest, but everyone I met at my host company was nice and my IIJ contact checked up on me regularly during the transition.

Given my specialized background and narrow time frame, I knew it would be challenging to find a suitable internship. IIJ exceeded my expectations and the company I was placed with proved to be an excellent fit. I spent a month in Tokyo working on exploratory data science with a startup tech company. While there, I gained invaluable work experience and mentorship. Even after completing the program, I've still been in contact with my host company. I'm hoping to present our research at a conference and possibly work together again in the future!

What was your funniest moment?
Networking with a bunch of scientists while in the bath at an onsen.

Exactly what I hoped for.

This was a great program. I needed an overseas internship to complete my degree and wanted to do it in Japan. Japan is not an easy country to find internships in, but they were able to find me an internship for the summer that was directly related to my field of study. The company was supportive during my entire internship and have continued to be a supportive of me after my internship came to a close.
The company holds parties every month or so and they are always a good time.
I highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in interning in Japan.

One of the best experiences of my life!

I was a bit skeptical at first, because of my interest in doing an internship related to game development and illustration, but ICC really delivered. (I was actually recommended by a friend at school!) I could not have asked for a cooler job experience, in central Tokyo, doing what I love to do. My agent was very invested in finding something that would be appropriate for my skill set. My college required a lot of stressful paperwork but ICC made sure all of that got signed for me. While the cost may seem high, the agency does most of the hard work for you, and the only things you have to worry about are preparing your portfolio, resume, etc., and the interview process.

The Internship in Japan staff was super friendly and helpful and I could tell they genuinely cared about each and every person under their wing. They held parties every now and then and it was fun to talk and connect with the other interns.

I was in Japan for 6 months, and spent every weekend and holiday thoroughly exploring Tokyo and other areas. I've been to themed cafes, concerts, various anime/manga and game conventions, and too many shrines and temples to count. Japan is beautiful, fun, and safe, and I'm so glad I decided to do an internship there through ICC.
