Learning and Career Support

SYSP (Share Your Story × Professionals)

This is one of U Share Student’s core programs. We invite working people who can be role models for our residents as speakers to share their experiences and thoughts. The purpose of this event is to provide residents with an opportunity to enhance their perspectives, broaden their horizons, and expand their networks.

Office Hour Mentoring

At top universities overseas, there is a system called “Office Hours” where you can talk to professors about anything, and U Share Student also offers this system. During Office Hours, you can consult with a member of our management team online or face-to-face on various topics such as career, employment, study abroad, etc. If necessary, we can also offer advice on your statement of purpose for studying abroad and hold mock job interviews.

Self-discovery Workshop

We hold “Self-Discovery Workshops” for residents to better understand themselves and what their strenghts are. The program will be led by an outside instructor and will use an online tool called StrengthsFinder, developed by Gallup (an American company), to help participants clarify their talents and strengths, and to provide hints for thinking about their career path and future.

Community Events

Social Event

Social events are organized by our Resident Assistants (RA’s). In the past, social events include movie nights, sport days, events based on the seasons such as spring hanami (sakura season), halloween, and christmas. They also organize the biannual Grand Welcome event to welcome new residents and Farewell events for leaving residents.

U Share Student Trek

U Share Student Trek is a student-centered program modeled after the “Trek” off-site learning opportunities held at Harvard Business School and other top business schools around the world. Interested residents form teams that mix school, grade level, major, and nationality to participate in themed camps. The goal of the program is for students to spend an intensive time in an environment different from their usual residence and gain invaluable experience.
