The Career Guidance Seminar and Keio University Information Session were held on Saturday, March 11.
For the Career Guidance Seminar which was held in the morning, we invited four speakers working in different fields to speak to our 9th and 10th graders about their professional experience. The speakers were:
- Ms. Minako Wakayama from Marubeni Power
- Mr. Noriaki Hiramoto from Nippon Television Network Corporation
- Mr. Koji Hachiyama from the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) New York Office
- Mr. Motoyasu Yamada from the Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations
They each gave very engaging talks, and the students enthusiastically asked questions after each speech. After the seminar, the speakers also stayed to chat with the students. It was a very informative seminar that introduced a variety of careers.
Following the seminar, the below representatives from each faculty of Keio University arrived for the Keio University Information Session directed at 11th graders:
- Dean Yoshimitsu Matsuura, Faculty of Letters
- Dean Shinsuke Nakamura, Faculty of Economics
- Professor Takahiro Sugita, Faculty of Law
- Professor Hidesuke Takata, Faculty of Business and Commerce
- Dean Hideyuki Okano, School of Medicine
- Professor Yukitoshi Sanada, Faculty of Science and Technology
- Professor Hiroya Tanaka, Faculty of Policy Management; and Faculty of Environment and Information Studies
- Professor Keita Yamauchi, Faculty of Nursing and Medical Care
- Professor Satoko Ishikawa, Faculty of Pharmacy
The information session began with a group session in the lecture hall where all of the speakers were introduced. The group session was followed by individual faculty sessions where the students were able to hear more about different faculties they were interested in, in a more intimate setting.
After the sessions, the representative stayed for dinner at the cafeteria, so students were able to have more informal conversation with them. As most of our students continue their higher education at Keio University, it was a very important opportunity to help them decide what faculty they would like to enter in the future.
