Our ultimate goals are to bridge the gap between Japan and the rest of the world and to advocate for diversity and internationalization in Japan. We aim to do so by matching talented students and workers with Japanese companies looking for an international edge.
Japan Careers Program is operated alongside the Sakae Japan Internship Program. Both programs are collaboratively managed by Lighthouse Global, Inc., and Sakae Institute of Study Abroad.
Japan Careers Program was designed from the ground up to cater to soon-to-graduate or recently-graduated students, as well as early-to-mid-career workers hoping to start or change their careers in Japan.Home PAge
The Sakae Japan Internship Program first started in 2017 and offers internship opportunities to students around the world who want to live in and experience Japan first-hand, with a possibility of working here long-term after graduation.
Lighthouse Global, Inc. was established in 2010 and has aided many international students and graduates with obtaining employment in Japanese companies.
Founded in 1972 by Ms. Yoko Sakae, The Sakae Institute of Study Abroad has provided Japanese students with the counseling and support they need to study abroad in America.
I think it's great how the program really sets you up for a future employment opportunity.
The company that hired me after my internship was surprisingly friendly. I used to think that all Japanese companies were really strict, but now I know that's not always true.
