Step3. Hints and advices to grab more

1

Let's check companies' hiring information first

Starting your very first conversation at a company's booth with "What position do you have?" actually brings bad image about you to the hiring company because basic information is already described in the ACF official website.
Developing the conversation focusing on more about details which can't be seen on websites will be the key to make your opportunities more productive.

2

Try to find new angles by communication

You must already have your preferable industries you'd love to choose to work for, however, new findings may reach you by communicating face-to-face. For example, an engineering company sometimes have accounting positions, a consulting company welcomes tech backgrounded candidates, or even a hidden position may reveal by your proactive questions.Let's fully utilize the time and chances to expand your horizon!

Language tips

ACF never asks you to change yourself or try to follow Japanese way completely because you have your own gift and strengths.
However, it often brings positive impact to the recruiters if you can try to use simple and short sentence in Japanese language especially at the beginning of interviews to show your attitude of understandings.

Try to use these below!

-Kon nichi wa: Hello

-Watashi no namae wa XXXXX desu: My name is XXXX.

-Yoroshiku onegai shimasu: Nice to meet you.

-Arigato gozai masu: Thank you very much.

Confirm steps after the fair

Generally, selection processes of Japanese companies are longer than western or your local companies for a reason.
That's because they would like to welcome new employees who not only possess certain skills or knowledge but also would love to confirm if they like to welcome you as a part of family from different angles.
With that we advise you to ask and check what will happen after the fair, when, and how, so that you can stably wait for their responses in each step.
