Orientation for students and companies were held separately and at the same time. After orientation, about 2 hours and 30 minutes was prepared for explanation session by companies and question and answer session between companies and students. There was cheerful and lively atmosphere. International students listened eagerly to the explanation by companies, actively asking questions about the process and work conditions before entering company.
