|Career Support Partnership System||The Career Support Partnership System was established by Yokohama City University in November 2013 to improve support for students looking for jobs outside the Tokyo metropolitan area. It aims to build a national network centered on national and public universities. OMU decided to join this partnership not only to improve the job-seeking environment for OMU students and strengthen our links with other universities, but also to support its policy of engaging in efforts to contribute to local communities and support local businesses.
Through the introduction of this system, students can receive the following forms of support from partner universities in the region where they are hoping to find a job.
