Jerelyn

I like Japan for its culture, place, and people. In technology, Japan is one of the leading countries known for its cutting-edge discoveries. Because of that, I think that I got the mentorship and growth I hoped for.

SJIP really helped me negotiate my living arrangements and make my transition as simple as possible. They showed continued interest in my well-being while I was in Japan and checked in with me regularly to provide support.

My company seemed like a really good base of a company. Since a lot of companies are really investing in AI and IoT, I feel like it's going to be really beneficial that I have this experience.

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.
