As to new grad hiring, there is a specific recruiting schedule which is a common way for getting job offers  while attending college. It has been said that many international students can’t understand this specific schedule.
This hiring schedule stems from Japanese life-time employment culture. Due to retirement of many employee all at once, companies hire new grads all at once, too, to compensate a number of employees in a sense on April.

A general job hunting schedule is shown on below.






It is common to start job hunting by participating internships*1 around summer, which is during July and August of junior or 1st year of master degree. Then, company visiting start around Junior’s March (or 1st year of master) , and job hunting starts in full swing on Senior’s June (or 2nd year of master)*2.

By October, new grads get job offers.

So, you should make a plan with grasping a flow of overall recruiting process and schedule.
