We have accepted an intern from the 2022 internship program sponsored by the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations. We look forward to our continued work with the JET Internship Programme and the continued professional development of our global professionals within Japan. The JET programme is a programme that brings human resources from around the world to Japan to work as ALTs (assistant language teachers), CIRs (coordinators for international relations), and SEAs (sports exchange assistants).

「文化観光リサーチ株式会社」にインターンとして参加できることを大変光栄に思っています。私は現在高知県須崎市に住んで仕事をしているので、CUTORが高知県と取引関係があることを知って、とても嬉しかったです! 一週間という短い期間ですが、この会社について、日本の会社で働くということはどういうことなのか、そして自分が日本の会社に何を提供できるのか、もっと学びたいと思っています。また、JETプログラム参加による実務経験を活かして、会社に積極的に貢献したいと考えています。


Comment from our intern (Chelsea Lopez)

“I am very honored to be able to participate as an intern at Cultural & Tourism Research (CUTOR), Inc. As I am currently living and working in Susaki, Kochi Prefecture, I was especially delighted to find out that CUTOR has some business relations with Kochi Prefecture! One week is very short, but I look forward to learning more about this company, what working in a Japanese company is like, and what I can provide for companies in Japan. I also hope to use my work experience from participating in the JET Programme to make a positive contribution to the company.” 

Compared to many other countries in Asia, it is widely believed that Japan’s English education is rather lacking. Having worked in the education field in Japan for 4 years, I also hold this belief. If Japan wants to continue moving into the global age, continuing to increase their globalization is a must. As English only just became an official required subject in elementary schools, there is still a long way to go. I hope that many Japanese companies will also see the benefits of globalizing their workforce. Whether this be through bringing in more foreign staff, or increasing the English level of their current employees.
