TMC to Offer Study-abroad Program for Job-offer Recipients
Toyota City, Japan - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) plans to offer a study-abroad program in 20121 for selected recipients2 of TMC job offers in Japan.
TMCís new program seeks to develop a more globally literate workforce by providing new graduates the opportunity to study abroad before they become TMC employees. The program is aimed to help participants develop a broad network with university students outside Japan and to learn more about the role expected of them within the international community.
TMC plans to send as many as 10 people from among the TMC job-offer recipients for 2011 to study in the international student program at the University of Pennsylvania in the United States from April to September 2012. Applications for the program will be accepted from a select group of job-offer recipients in October 2011 and, if more apply than can be accepted, applicants will be screened based on a short essay and language test. Program participants will be treated as officially entering TMC on October 1, 2012, and are to assume their respective postings on December 1.
TMC will cover costs for tuition and a roundtrip airfare, while participants will be responsible for living expenses while on the program.
TMC sees recruiting and training a global workforce as vital to increasing Japanís international competitiveness and will continue to offer the program in the years to come.
