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!

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.

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.

First Day Support

It's your first day! If you have not explored your work area yet, we are more than happy to drop you off at the office on your first day. Starting a bit later that day? Let's go grab a coffee or get a Japanese tea so you will start the day relaxed.

Professional Guidance

Without a resume and cover letter it's hard to apply for an internship in Japan. But it's also hard to write a resume and cover letter. That's where we jump in; our internship team will help you create the perfect resume and motivation letter. We try to make it in a professional way so you can use it for later job applications as well.

Special Access & 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!

Simple 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!)

Airport Arrival Pick-Up

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.
