Career Path & Employment Advice

The School of Art and Design provides an excellent support system for employment and future career paths. Career guidance for students begins in their first year, offering students the opportunity to hear from professionals who are active in art and design, and in a variety of business fields, to help students develop a more concrete idea of the type of work they want to do. In their third year, students can attend the guidance sessions that are held frequently, with a focus on practical job-hunting. In parallel with the lectures and guidance sessions, supervisors, career counselors, and post-graduation job support staff from Hello Work join in to provide individual career guidance. As a result of this comprehensive support system, the majority of our graduates successfully continue on to their desired career path.

Geibun provides an excellent support system for employment and future career paths. To date, over 90%* of Geibun's many graduates have gone on to find employment after graduation.
*Values shown indicate percentages of graduates seeking employment after graduation who successfully found employment.

Alumni Activities

Students at Geibun can contribute to enriching regions in their own unique ways, finding places to play active roles in various places and putting their skills to use to help benefit society. At Geibun, we have started a PR magazine called TADJ that covers Geibun graduates. There is also the “Hello, Senpai” column in Tom's Press, a PR magazine published by the University of Toyama. We hope you'll give them a look.
