Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) and IIT Hyderabad (IITH) co-hosted ‘Japan Career Fair 2023’, the sixth edition of ‘JAPAN DAY’. 20 Japanese companies participated in the career fair, which is the largest number of participants since the event started in 2018. To enhance the strong bond between Japan and IIT Hyderabad, Japan Day has expanded to Japan Week. Three technical workshops for hands-on demonstration of scientific equipment were held in collaboration with Japanese companies.

“Interest in India’s engineering and scientific talent is growing among Japanese companies. Since there is a critical lack of IT engineers in Japan, several businesses there are eager to employ motivated Indian experts. The participating Japanese companies anticipate that IITH students will play key roles in emerging technological innovation and global strategies. Former ‘JAPAN DAY’ has now expanded to ‘Japan Week’ to showcase other aspects, including Japanese culture,” stated Toshihiro Mizutani, Director General, JETRO Bengaluru.

“JAPAN DAY, which has been organised annually since 2018 at IITH, is a an event that helps our students to develop an understanding and confidence about the job, work culture, life and career path in Japan. Many Japanese companies will also get exposure to the excellence and potential of IITH students through active interaction with them on JAPAN DAY,” said Prof BS Murty, Director, IITH.
