J-Global is a small startup. As such, we prefer our interns to be flexible, supportive, and continually desiring to broaden their experiences. An intern at J-Global should thrive on challenge and be able to work independently. An internship at J-Global also provides a unique opportunity to experience what it’s like to work for (1) a smaller, international organization such as J-Global and (2) bigger, Japanese organizations which are J-Global’s clients. As J-Global interns routinely attend client meetings they have the opportunity to get in contact with and learn about a variety of businesses.

The Company: J-Global helps organizations succeed with a powerful new framework for managing, working and communicating in an international environment. J-Global does this by providing (1) seminars, (2) consulting and is currently producing (3) e-Learning modules. The J-Global method trains leaders and staff in a system of inter-cultural mindsets and skills that combines the strengths of Japan’s team-based work style with fast-paced, competitive global business practices. J-Global organizations are more motivated, more proactive, more collaborative and more effective.
