Two officials from JTB Corporation were invited to the meeting as speakers. A total of 12 international students attended the meeting.

They are "travel business," "communication business," "regional exchange business" and "solution business for general affairs." Mr. Goto detailed the contents of business in each division as well as planning and future prospects of the company.

Next, Mr. Shrestha Anoj (from Nepal), Nagoya Department, JTB Corporation spoke about his own experiences of studying in Japan, job-hunting and efforts to adjust himself to Japanese corporate culture and environment. His speech was full of useful advice for international students who are seeking jobs in Japan.

Their presentations were followed by Q&A session where students asked many questions to the speakers. In the following informal gathering, students and the speakers shared information, and exchange views over work, business, etc. in a friendly setting. All the messages found in questionnaires were very positive, representing students' appreciation for the opportunity to meet with the officials from one of the largest travel agency in Japan.
