Panasonic's Vision of Career Choice

"We do not want you to spend your student life just looking for a job, and above all, we want you to value the learning opportunities you have as a student." In order to protect such valuable opportunities, and to help you make the best career choice at the most appropriate time, Panasonic offers year-round recruitment.

The time you can spend as a student is precious, and there are learning opportunities and experiences that can only be gained now.
We do not want you to miss out on those precious opportunities and experiences by rushing through the job hunting activities in comparison to someone else.

We live in a complex, rapidly changing society where it is difficult to predict the future.
Student life is full of opportunities to build a foundation for solving such social issues and becoming a globally competitive human resource.
That is why we want you to value the "strengths that make you unique," which can only be developed by facing those learnings seriously.

Panasonic's Vision for Human Resource Development

"Develop people before making products." - What generates business is people. Every business can only develop by having the right people. -
These are the words of our founder, Konosuke Matsushita.
The founder's passion for human resource development, expressed in these words, has been firmly passed down to the present.

In our view, human resource development is not limited to training people after they join Panasonic.

We believe that it is Panasonic's social responsibility to develop human resources who can contribute to society not only by acquiring new knowledge and skills, but also by having the ability to practice and apply them, and to discover and solve problems on their own. To this end, we undertake a number of industry-academia joint initiatives so that students can use the experience and learning they have gained during their student life to play an active role in the business world.
