(Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Hiroki Mori; hereinafter referred to as “Laibo”), which develops and operates the anonymous consultation service “JobQ (*1)” specializing in career, employment, and job changes. (*2)” conducted a “2024 Educational Background and Career Status Survey” targeting 629 working men and women.
This survey examines whether there is a relationship between educational background and career, the reasons for this, situations in which educational background affects people, and whether or not people are aware of educational background towards others other than themselves, as well as the values ​​and necessity of educational background in society, their proportion by age group, and educational background. We investigated the pros and cons to society and the reasons for them.

[Job-type employment and educational background awareness]
The lifetime employment system that has been established in Japanese companies since the period of high economic growth along with the seniority system is fading away, and the number of companies in Japan is gradually starting to shift to job-based employment. Job-based employment differs from traditional recruitment methods that place emphasis on academic background, and employs people with expertise and experience that match the job. According to a survey by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the number of applicants for university admission in 2023 will decrease by approximately 120,000 compared to the previous year, and it is estimated that by 2050, the number of university admissions will be 80% of the capacity. How is the relationship between educational background and career of working adults and the values ​​attached to educational society changing?
Therefore, Job Research Institute surveyed 629 working men and women to find out the relationship between educational background and career, the reasons for it, the situations in which educational background affects people, whether or not people are aware of educational background towards others, and also the value of educational background and society. We conducted the “2024 Survey on the Status of Educational Background and Careers,” which investigated the necessity and proportion by age group, as well as the pros and cons of an educational society and the reasons for them.

[Survey summary]
In the “2024 Educational Background and Career Status Survey” conducted this time, 80% of the respondents answered that
“educational background is related to career,” and the reasons for this were “social credibility and status improvement” and
“judgement based on educational background.” The top responses were “Many companies,” and “Influence on desired job.” When it comes to situations related to academic background, 80% of respondents answered “when job hunting,” and when it came to specific situations, the most common answer was “when screening documents.” Additionally, 50% of respondents said they were “aware” of other people’s educational backgrounds, with “colleagues” being the most likely person to be aware of. These results show that there is a strong relationship between educational background and career, and that people are conscious of their educational background from their colleagues, so it seems that competitiveness is considered necessary when job hunting. Furthermore, when asked about their pros and cons of education and society, 70% of the respondents said they were in favor of society, and the reasons for this were from a corporate perspective, such as “materials for determining adaptability to the industry/occupation” and “opportunities for young people to succeed.” In addition to the most prominent opinions, there were also values ​​based on personal experience, such as “I have worked hard to obtain my educational background.”
Although 60% of the respondents answered that “the educational society is old,” 70% of the respondents answered that “the educational society is necessary.” Although the “educational society” is said to be old from an individual’s point of view, we can understand from the results of the reasons for support, necessity, and values ​​that there is a certain necessity from the perspective of recruitment and management. Looking at needs and values ​​by age group, as the age increases, the percentage of respondents who believe that their educational background and society are old-fashioned increases, with the highest percentage among people in their 50s. However, people in their 20s were the most likely to say “educational background is necessary for society,” and the younger the age group, the more they were conscious of their educational background. The tendency for people’s awareness of their educational background to decline as they get older is thought to be related to whether or not the period of job hunting is around the time when the term
“educational background filter” has become popular, but what is more influential is It is considered to be a “history of working life.” It can be inferred that the more experience you gain, the more you will become aware of the necessity of factors other than your academic background in building your career, and the less you will become attached to your academic background.
It can be seen that the “values ​​of the educational society” of people in their 40s and 50s have become new, and it is possible that the trend of Japanese society will change in the future. Considering the state of acceptance of the academic background, the survey results predict that the educational society will continue and further penetrate in the future.
At Libo, we will continue to conduct various surveys related to employment, career changes, work styles, etc., and aim to realize a society where individuals can play an active role by disseminating real and highly transparent information.
