Students Attend Career Fair for Japanese Companies
October 10, 2014
The Ohio Career Fair for Japanese companies was held at The Ohio State University campus on Friday, September 5. Dr. Hamako Furuhata-Turner, professor of Japanese at Mount Union, led the trip, with several Mount Union students participating in the career fair.
Managers from six Japanese companies, which are located in Ohio, introduced their corporations and presented details of production. Most of the manufacturing is for automotive components. Mount Union students gave their resumes to the managers and asked questions about the jobs and job availability. The students who participated in this event were Kendal Harris, Shelby Pollock, Kelsey Foegen, Ashley Guilbert, Desiree Erchick, Emily Rich and Xin Mak.
After the event, a reception was held to allow students to network with people from the companies. Since Ohio has a close relationship with Saitama Prefecture in Japan, the Governor of Saitama was invited to this event. Mount Union students had a great time and learned about job opportunities in the real world.
