What users are saying

  • Student (20s, male)
    I consulted with UTokyo IPC and registered on DEEPTECH DIVE.Almost immediately, I received an offer from a startup, did an online interview and got accepted as an intern.We carefully discussed my preferred internship period and how I wanted to participate in advance.It would have been difficult finding this information elsewhere, so I’m grateful.I was able to gain experience in the deep tech field I wanted to explore.
  • Engineer (20s, male)
    In my fourth year working as an engineer at a manufacturing company that I joined as a new graduate, I began to think about my future career and registered on DEEPTECH DIVE.I received an offer and grew interested in startups.Currently, I have a secondary job contract with a startup.This allows me to feel secure as I prepare for a new career while continuing my full-time job.
  • Project planning (30s, male)
    I started thinking of making a career change before turning 30.Startups go through various stages, and the management of the one I received an offer from was already quite stable. Contrary to what I was expecting, it was an environment that I could feel secure working in, so I consulted with my family and decided to make a career change.I get to meet many people who are stimulating, and since a lot of matters are left to our discretion, I often make decisions on my own. This has allowed me to really feel that I have grown.
  • General affairs (40s, female)
    Since I was raising a child, I hadn’t worked full-time in a while. When I was considering returning to work, I learned about UTokyo IPC and that led to my employment.I hadn’t really thought about startups, but my broad knowledge of corporate organizations puts me in a unique position and I feel that my presence is appreciated.Being able to support the executives and employees of a business striving to achieve great social significance is very fulfilling.
