Our Core Values.


Deliver the best internship experience, ever.
Your internship experience is important to us. At Zentern, our goal is to empower every intern to have a valuable and unforgettable time in Japan by creating the best internship experiences.

Support & Assist.
Traveling overseas by yourself and being away from home for a few months can be exciting but also scary. You're not alone, though. Our team strives to create a friendly, trusting environment where you can feel comfortable asking us anything. We're always here to help and close behind your parents; we're your biggest cheerleaders!

Grow 1% every day.

Personal growth doesn't have to come from huge milestones—even 1% daily growth can be life-changing. At Zentern, we're committed to growing at least 1% every day and helping others do the same.

Nanakorobi, yaoki.
七転び八起き。"Fall seven times, stand up eight." This famous Japanese saying reminds us that no matter how many times you fail, you will survive and learn so much more than if you'd never tried. With this in mind, we embrace the journey, including the failures, as opportunities for growth and learning.

We wouldn't be Zentern if we couldn't keep our Zen. Balance is key to a healthy lifestyle. That's why we strive to achieve a harmonious work-life balance and encourage our team and interns to do the same. We believe in being Zen in all aspects of our lives.

Welcome and celebrate all cultures.
The strength of our company lies in the people who make it up: our interns, partners and employees. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels welcomed and respected, no matter their background. Celebrating diversity makes us stronger!

Never too old to learn.
We believe in continuous growth and development, regardless of age. Personal growth is a lifelong journey, and it's never too late to start.

Stay Curious.
Stay curious, ask questions, dig deeper, and actively contribute. We want everyone to feel empowered to bring their best ideas to the table, and to feel confident in their ability to create something truly impactful.
