The Okinawa Prefectural Government and the Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau held a job fair at Hotel Royal Orion in Naha on the morning of August 27. The fair was aimed at 17 college and university students from China’s Fujian province who visited Okinawa to take a regional guide-interpreter examination for the fiscal 2015. Ten Okinawan companies including Okinawa Tourist Service, Okinawa Watabe Wedding, and the Sweet Bakery Porsche Co. took part in the fair and held interviews with the students. Fujian Normal University student Gen Yuen Han, who majored in Japanese language, said, “I used to interact with exchange students from Okinawa in China, which made me have a good impression of the prefecture. By taking advantage of my Japanese skills, I would like to land a job in an Okinawa travel company.”
