Guaranteed Virtual and online Internship in Japan

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!

Professional Guidance

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?


Fun & professional workshops. Meet both Japanese and international entrepreneurs, hear about their success stories or you can learn about a traditional tea ceremony for only ¥1,000. With our workshops you will shine like a star during work meetings.

FAQ online internship program

Based on your location and internship role, you will decide your working hours with your supervisor. Usually you have weekly meetings and a fixed work schedule to stick to.

Through chat, e-mail and online meetings. 

Anytime! You can start this week or in 6-months. Applications are usually open 1-year in advance.

If you mean paid in work experience and gaining new skills then yes. Money, nope. This is due to visa and the country’s regulations. However, if you decide to intern in Japan, most companies cover commuting expenses and/or lunch.

Due to the current coronavirus situation, we have realized that it doesn’t matter where you are to do the work. You don’t need to be in the country. Working with a Japanese company will still allow you to experience a new work flow, another way of thinking and meeting / communicating with different people. 

Yes! The more the merrier and wouldn’t it be fun to hang out together at your fav cafe while working for the same company?

Of course you can! Just let us know what we have to do and we will make sure you are getting your credits.

Of course! Planning of coming to Japan whenever you are ready?

After you have completed your online internship, the amount will be deducted from the program fee! 

The application fee only needs to be paid once. 

This fee is refundable in case Zentern can’t set up an interview with a company in your field of choice. It has never happened before but if we fail, you will be guaranteed to get your money back. 
That’s how certain we are we can arrange the perfect internship placement for you!
