Re: What's next after Vulcanus?

Hello, everybody! I finally made it! I came to Yokohama on a 6 months contract at Bosch. It would be helpful if you would detail how you managed to get a job at another company, especially if you hunted after you returned home. Is it working the same as in Europe, you sent your resume and they inter...

Re: Welcome!

Hello! Thank you for posting that information!

I was not selected this year either! It was a nice journey and I wish you all the best!

It was my last year of eligibility, so I can take my mind away from this!

Re: Question about graduation timing

Hello, FlipFlop! In the regulations it is stated that you must be enrolled at least 3 months prior to departure, which means that is you graduate in July you are fine. I am in the exactly same situation. By the way, I am also studying in Italy, at "Politecnico" di Torino. What is your major?
