Any info, on which companies tend to do interviews?

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

I'm so anxious right now! I know that knowing the match making has started means nothing, and we will have some weeks more to wait for final results, but I'm still very anxious XD It means that the company could potentially be looking at your portfolio at any time, and take a decision on you. So, m...

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

Still, apparently no one received positive feedback in April. They either got accepted by the end of March, of they were rejected in April.
I suppose something similar might happen this time.

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

Last month, interviews happened around one week after the start of the matchmaking, and then confirmations at the very end of the month, if I'm not mistaken.

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

The very few videos that there are on YouTube of former Vulcanus participants are completely random and lacking context (like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMSfPX2KRBc). Its hilarious to watch, but I would love to see some better quality videos describing the experience. I'd be up for it ...

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

I guess this programme is too small to appear on Twitter discussions. Unless WE talk about it, no-one else will xD.
Adding it to the website would be excellent, since this place is extremely useful for applicants.

This is the blog, it is only in Spanish: http://arreisinjapan.blogspot.com Thanks! Thankfully I'm Spanish too ;P It´s true. We are quite less than last year. Why might this be...

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

If they follow similar dates to last year, matchmaking will start in just 10 days!

What are you all doing to keep yourselves calm/entertained?

Re: Ending date

SInce interships end on different days, everyone did something different. Some went straight home, some waited till end of August, some I believe returned directly, but on a 3-month holiday visa. So, basically no constraints apply, in difference to the entrance visa. I see, thank you! I wondered be...

Re: Ending date

@A2S7 Thank you for your reply!

Once the internship finished, did you all need to fly back on the same day, or did you fly back on different days?

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

I wouldn't read too much into it. Obviously, by numbers of other applicants your chances go down by changing the offer you apply for. But its not like they roll a dice (well...sometimes they do maybe...but lets assume not). If it actually matches your background and past experiences, you chances go...

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

I sent my motivation letter for the matchmaking, now starts the waiting.
I think other years they sent an email saying that the matching period begins, I hope they do it this year as well!

It's funny how they still did not fix the mistake in the example to name the letter and email. I used 4 dashes.

Ending date

Do you know exactly which day the program will finish, and if we are required to fly back home on a specific date? I am planning to start a masters (probably in Japan as well!) and I am worried about date compatibility.

What was the ending date last year?

Re: VinJ 19/20 applicants

As far as I know my country doen't have WHV with japan, may I ask is there any other option for internship in japan ? One option is to do a masters in Japan. As they are trying to internationalize themselves, it's becoming easier to get in. Don't focus solely on the biggest ones since they are hype...

My documents arrived on the 22nd according to the courier, but I have not yet received a confirmation email. :(
Did I do something wrong?
