Quality Internships

Dodgy internships in Japan will never happen with Zentern. We strictly screen companies to ensure our Zenterns get valuable, hands-on work experience. We want you to enjoy going to work everyday with no overtime!

Discover Japan

We don't stop at just the internship! We have a seasonal, ever-changing and exciting cultural program ready for you. Allow our team to show you the best Japan and what this amazing country has to offer.

Japanese lessons

Weekly Japanese lessons are tailor-made for our Zenterns and only 1,000 yen per lesson. That's right, we have original and professional content ready for you. Every week we learn new things you can apply right away. You can finally tell the waiter at your fav restaurant you'd like to go for the special, onegaishimasu!

Data Sim Card

"Yes mom and dad, I have arrived safely and am having some sushi right now." might be the first words you send home. Staying in touch with your family and friends is important to us. Our SIM card allows you to stay online 24/7 and order delivery from your fav ramen shop.

Transportation Card

Fortunately most companies provide a commuter pass. But Tokyo and other cities have so much more to offer. To get you started we set you up with a JPY2,000 charged transportation pass you can top up yourself when needed!

24/7 Emergency Assistance

With Japan being #9 on the Global Peace Index a.k.a. safe-country-ranking, you can still walk the dog at 2am without any worries. While uncommon, accidents due happen. From the beginning we have ensured all Zenterns are safe and genki (healthy). In case something happens we are here to help.

Housing Arrangements

Home is where the heart is (as well as your PlayStation and a comfy bed to watch Netflix.) Zentern arranges your accommodation in Japan based on your preferences. Our housing partners take screenings very seriously ensuring a safe and comfortable environment. Housing starts from USD500 for a private room including utilities, furniture, super fast jedi internet and awesome housemates.

Mentorship

We have a whole family at Zentern supporting you. After your internship experience, you might realize you have always wanted to become an astronaut instead of a marketeer. How can I make the switch? How can I use this internship in Japan? What do I say during my interview at NASA?

Arrival Pick-Up Support

Welcome to Japan! We provide you with detailed instructions on how to get to your accommodation. Our housing manager will pick you up from the nearest station and show you the shortest route to your door. If you're unsure on making the journey alone, Zentern members will be happy to pick you up from the airport for an additional JPY18,000.

Workshops & Network Events

Fun & professional workshops. Meet both Japanese and international entrepreneurs, hear about their success stories or you can learn about a traditional tea ceremony. With our workshops & Japanese lessons you will shine like a star during network events. Have a simple chat with Suzuki-san and expand your professional network. Tokyo offers the best biz-hub to meet like minded young professionals.

Special Discounts

That's right! Zentern has partnered up with several unique companies, We offer several discounts on gym classes, fashion items, Japanese sweets, cosmetics and more! You will be granted access to your coupons when you're in Japan!

Goodie Bag

Top secret goodie bags are handed out during your orientation including useful items and seasonal snacks. Zentern is always looking to add something extra special to your internship in Japan experience ( and perhaps some extra kilos in snacks, luckily we have special prices for a gym work-out!)
