The Japanese government has started a paid internship programme for Pakistani students in partnership with Pakistan’s PM Youth Programme.
According to the information, the number of Japanese organizations planning to hire global talent is growing. However, smaller companies, in particular, face obstacles due to limited experience dealing with foreign employees and a lack of professional networks.
The “METI Japan Internship Programme” has been established to solve this issue. This programme promotes the international expansion of Japanese SME’s by employing foreign university students and global talent. Participants will gain an understanding of employment duties in Japan through internships.
Here is all you need to know about METI Japan Internship Program:
Types of Internships

Commuting Internships (A/A2 Course)
For this type of internship, you will travel from your home to the company where you will be working every day. You will have the chance to interact face-to-face with your colleagues and supervisor, which promotes effective communication.
Online Internships (B/B2 Course)
