Written reviews by our Zenterns
"My experience with Zentern was fantastic. I felt well taken care of and encouraged to follow my passion. The internship was very fulfilling that Zentern helped me find and I was given responsibility that I had never been given before in other companies. Tokyo is very affordable, and my living accommodation was safe and clean. I would recommend Zentern to anyone who is trying to find an internship in Japan and I would say it was a valuable work experience. "
"I examined several Japanese internship companies and Zentern was the absolute best. I was extremely excited to come to Japan. We had Japanese lessons that helped make my experience more enriching, trips to different parts of Japan, and viewing the enriching culture. I am thankful for Zentern helping me find a great internship and I wish I could stay even longer, but thanks to Zentern I have decidd to get my MBA in Japan. I will never forget this and I am so happy I can advance my professional career."
"Interning in Japan was one of the best experiences of my life. Zentern was incredibly supportive through the entire process and helped me find an internship I enjoyed, and we even had day trips and events every week where you could meet people from different cultures. There is so much to do in Japan and Tokyo and I would highly recommend this program for anyone who wants a great experience abroad."
"My internship was one of the most amazing things I have done in my life. Going to Japan changed how I viewed the world and Zentern helped me find an internship that made me want to make a career out of it. The memories I created in Japan are ones that I will carry with me for the rest of my life and if I could work in Tokyo again I would go immediately. Zentern offered amazing activities that were always different, whether it was going to Mt. Fuji or a hot spring, I never felt like I was missing out on the real Japan experience. I would highly recommend using Zentern, these are memories you will last you a lifetime."
"I had a lovely time working in Tokyo and everyone at Zentern was amazing. The company they found was the perfect fit for me as I was doing graphic design, user experience, and web design. I learned so much in a short amount of time and I would go back to Japan in a heartbeat. Zentern was very communicative and the support I received was something I appreciated immensely. Don’t think twice about coming, just go for it."
"The Zentern team helped me get an internship in a great company and provided continuous support throughout. By the end of my internship, I was offered an opportunity to work for that company as a full time staff, which I happily accepted.
I couldn't thank Zentern enough for everything that is done. On top of having a full-time job now, I also made many new friends and had many great experiences during my stay in Tokyo. If you ever dream of working in Japan, even if temporary, I recommend giving this internship a try."
