Information On The 1998 Job Fair For European Scientists

Author: Author unknown, Issue: February 1998, Topic: Employment


Those of you who have been here for a while probably remember the first 'European Job Fair' organized in Tokyo last April. The success and the necessity for such a Job Fair encouraged a new team, a small group of 8 people at present, to get together in order to set up a similar event. This Job Fair is organized for European Scientists in Japan wishing to find a position in industry or commerce.

In this respect, we would like to create an electronic booklet of CVs which would gather CVs of European scientists who have worked or studied in Japan. A site for this has already been found on the Web. As this site will be using a search engine, access to information will be readily accessible and user-friendly for the recruiters. During the Job Fair, candidates looking for a position may also wish to present posters illustrating their skills and experience.

The 1998 Job Fair is scheduled for this spring, the date and place of which will be determined very soon. This web page will be officially open a few days before the Job Fair and at the latest on 1 April, 1998.

We are presently having discussions with various organizations based in Japan, so as to establish the possible partnership terms with the AIST, European Embassies, Chambers of Commerce and Industry of various European countries in Japan, and European Union representatives which include the Europe-Japan Industrial Cooperation.

We already know that the 1998 Job Fair cannot just be attached to the one organized by the European CCIs in Japan, as happened last year. The electronic CV booklet will be promoted to the companies and recruitment agencies, either directly or through fairs. Therefore, we would like to receive your CV(s) as soon as possible, and no later than 2 March 1998, although it will be possible to modify them at any time.

Requirements for the CV:

  • in English, and, for those who consider it necessary, in another language.
  • a file in the html format is preferred, otherwise send a WORD file (maximum 2 pages) as an attached file to: deces[at]ffpri.affrc.go.jp mentioning in the 'subject': [CV]
  • one digitized photo can be attached
  • a link to your homepage can be given
  • among the 10 main sections, please mention which one(s) you would like to appear in: Architecture, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Physics, Electronics, Engineering Sciences, Computer Science, Economics, Human Sciences
  • there will be several subsections in each main section. Please mention the key-words which will describe your subsection(s) most appropriately so that we can compile titles for the subsections, e.g. materials, environment, semi-conductors, industrial design, geophysics, robotics, etc...

In order to keep you informed about the Job Fair 98, a moderated mailing list has been created. You would receive few messages, sent by the organizing committee only. Joining the list is easy: go to http://www.coollist.com; in the section: "Subscribe to a Coollist mailing list:" enter for "list name": jobfair; for "your email": your e-mail address.

Please help us contact as many people as possible by passing this message on to anyone who may be interested. Moreover, if you wish to participate in the organization of this Job Fair (all helping hands are welcome!), or if you have any remarks, contact ocafrain@nirim.go.jp. The Job Fair Organising Committee Raoul Beauduin, Cyrille Deces-Petit, Georges Dupret, Christian Dussarrat, Amina Lafrance, David Meneses, Arlette Ocafrain and Paul Reay.
