G100 Course

What is the G100 Course?

Recruiting process for non-native Japanese speakers, applying for business positions as new graduates in Japan.

Up until now, emphasizing as a Japanese company, Panasonic's recruiting process in Japan has focused on communication in Japanese since we valued on the culture of Japanese craftspersonship symbolized by "Made in Japan."

Yet as we seeks to create new value with our customers all over the world for the next 100 years, it is essential that we retain diverse talent without regard to the languages that they use, to rapidly incorporate into society the ideas brought by “creative friction” between cross-cultural communication.

In order to embrace diverse talents to create such an innovative culture able to meet the changing business environment, we have newly established the G100 Course to ease conditions for Japanese language skills in some processes for hiring within Japan, to provide more accessible recruiting system.

Expected Candidates

Students seeking work in Japan wishing to communicate in English or Chinese in recruiting process rather than Japanese. (Regardless of nationality or experience abroad.)
