Doorkel Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Yohei Suzuki), which develops and provides SaaS “SchooLynk Contact” that DX recruits public relations for educational
institutions, will open universities and vocational schools this fiscal year (end of March 2023). We conducted a questionnaire survey of 500 graduating students about their career choices upon graduating from high school.
Survey summary
・31.4%, more than 1 in 4, answered that they felt a gap between their expectations and their expectations at the time of admission, and regretted their career choices.
・67.5% of those who regretted choosing their career path answered that they were unable to obtain sufficient information from universities and vocational schools.
・62.5% of those who regretted their career choice answered that they did not participate in the open campuses and school information sessions of all the schools that they were interested in.
・The number one reason why people who regretted their career choices did not participate in open campuses or school information sessions at all schools they were interested in was “I didn’t feel the need to participate in open campuses or school information sessions.” (It was troublesome to visit the university or vocational school directly.) 31.4% of university and vocational school students scheduled to graduate this year (March 2023) answered that they have regrets about choosing their career path, and will upgrade their choice of school after graduating from high school. It was a result of feeling the need. The characteristics of those who answered that they regretted their career choice were that they were unable to obtain sufficient information from universities and vocational schools, and that they did not participate in open campuses and school information sessions of all schools that they were interested in. No.” For this reason, we believe it is important for schools to create opportunities for high school students to learn more about the school in a format where they can easily participate, so as not to create a gap in expectations with incoming students. In addition, due to the change in the corona situation, more and more schools are canceling online events, but online open campuses and online school information sessions, which are not tied to time or place, are a good choice for high school students. I realized that it was a necessary effort above.
