▼Please tell us why you chose the above.
《Reasons why you feel uneasy about “interview measures”》
• I think it’s the most important step. Also, because the element of luck is strong
・ Because it is difficult to practice alone and you can not practice the tension of the actual performance.
・ Because there are few opportunities to practice interviews – Depends on your relationship with the interviewer
・Because I haven’t been able to summarize what I will talk about in the interview yet, and I don’t have much in the first place. ・ Lack of experience in communicating with people
・ I am the type of person who gets very nervous, so even if I prepare in advance, I may not be able to demonstrate my true strength. ・Because I am not accustomed to communicating with people in society ・ I’m not good at thinking about things on the spot
・ I don’t always get prepared questions, and when I am asked unexpected questions, I am worried about whether I will be able to answer them well. I’m not confident that I can give a consistent answer.
・Because the interview criteria differ from company to company, it is often difficult to understand.
・ I’m worried about whether I can respond flexibly to various questions. ・ I’m worried if I can convey everything I want to convey well. ・ Because it is necessary to take measures online and face-to-face. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

▼Please tell us your specific situation and feelings about the above. 《Reasons for “anxiety about joining a major company/white company”》 ・ Through selection of internships, etc., I feel that the larger the company, the more difficult it is to find a job.
・ When I hear the term “education filter”, I lose confidence that I shouldn’t have the desire to go to a major company from the beginning. ・ When I look at the word-of-mouth site of a company’s employees, there are many bad reviews, and I wonder if I should apply for that company. Even if you know that there are no perfectly good companies, your eyes will go to the bad points.
・ Anyway, I’m worried if I can get a job offer. Several companies participated in the internship this summer, but there is no prospect for the final selection.
・ In fact, the company I participated in the internship had a bad reputation (black), and I continued to search for other companies, and it was stagnant, so I didn’t know what to do. I don’t have to do it.” ・ I feel that my current situation is extremely childish and hopeless compared to other students. I don’t have a lot of gakuchika or self-promotion, and I don’t know much about company research or my aptitude.
・Because we are mainly receiving orders from major companies, there is a fear that we will run out of pieces when everything fails. ・ I was rejected in the internship selection more than I thought, and I lost my confidence.
《Reasons for “anxiety because I don’t understand the movements of job-hunting students around me”》
・ I’m worried because I don’t know what stage I’m in now.
・ I participate in circles and seminars, but people around me don’t talk about job hunting so much that I can’t see the whole movement at all, probably because they avoid troublesome topics.
・ I am very worried because I am not sure if there is any movement in job hunting, and I have not yet completed ES
・ I am worried about the future because there is no one to tell me what to do. ・ The biggest concern is that there are few places for general employment at universities, so there are almost no places to share information and there is no instructor.
・ It’s not something that can be compared with other people, but I’m still worried about the selection process of those around me. ・ I feel very impatient because there are people around me who have already received a job offer from a company, I have been busy with my studies, and I have neglected to focus on job hunting.
■ Anxiety and doubts about job hunting
▼Do you have any concerns, questions, or want to know about job hunting? ・ The flow of job hunting that is unfavorable for students who work hard on research is tough
・ If there is no education filter, I’m worried because I don’t know where I can see myself. My parents tell me to take the TOEIC exam, but I don’t know if it’s really necessary for employment.
・ I don’t know where it’s coming from, but I receive frequent DMs and phone calls from companies I don’t remember registering, so it takes an endless amount of time to distinguish and handle reliable companies.
・ I don’t know how to behave in an interview to pass.I end up at the extreme of either speaking fluently or making eye contact.
・ I don’t know how to feel while taking a personality test. After taking the test a few times, I found that even if I answered honestly, contradictions would arise, so I started answering as if it were my ideal self. It is questionable how the personality test is used in the selection process.
・ I wonder if what I’m doing now makes sense? I’m walking down the road with vague anxiety, and I’m going to job hunting with a sense of floating in the air. For the time being, I’m filling up my schedule as much as I can, but I feel like it’s going to end in vain. I can’t help but be afraid of the selection process starting.
・ There is a point that real information is not conveyed only by corporate PR. I think that not only PR but not telling the truth is a point that not only job-hunting students but also companies should improve.
・ Although the industry is not narrowed down, I feel that there are an infinite number of companies, and I feel uneasy about whether there is an end to research on companies.
・ I don’t know how far I should go for self-analysis. I would like to know if there is no end and I have to do it from the beginning to the end of job hunting.
・ If the industry is different, the timing of acceptance of the offer and the period to think.
・ I started looking for a job in March this year, but by October I was mentally exhausted and was at a level where I was considering going to a psychiatrist.
・ I was studying abroad, so I graduated in a different year than my class, and I’m a little worried that there is no one around me who is looking for a job.
・ I don’t know where and how to start self-analysis. I want to work in a field that I like, but I’m not sure if it’s really suitable for me or if it’s possible with my current skills.
・ I would like to know what measures and studies are taken by people who receive job offers from major companies every year.
・ When I look at a company’s word-of-mouth site, I am left with only bad points, partly because they are written by former employees or those who are planning to quit, and I wonder if I should apply for that company. But I’m afraid I might end up joining a black company if I don’t read word-of-mouth sites. I don’t know how to deal with review sites.
・ Little by little, I’ve discovered things I don’t like about the company that I wanted to work for until recently, and I don’t know how I want to work. I’ve always been vulnerable to stress, and I’m worried that if I start looking for a job now, my job hunting will be delayed and I’ll feel stressed longer.
・ There are various tests such as SPI, Tamatebako, and Design Thinking Ability Test, but I am in trouble because I don’t have enough time to take measures. I want to know how far students around me are taking measures. I’m depressed because I wish I had started studying countermeasures earlier.
