We would like to inform you that Shonosuke has started using the slow job hunting site “CareerPod”.
About “CareerPod”
Overview of “CareerPod”
“CareerPod” is a new job-hunting site where you can learn about career planning from the basics and can be used by everyone from first-year university students to job-hunting students. We support “slow job hunting” and “preparation for entering society” to help each individual achieve their desired career.

In the past, most students rushed to start thinking about the industry and company they wanted to work in after becoming job hunters. The “slow job hunting” advocated by Concord Academy involves carefully considering your life and career from an early age, such as your first or second year at university, to find the job you want, plan your career, and choose your path. This is a new style of job hunting.

We believe that by using CareerPod, students will be able to go into job hunting with a higher level of self-awareness and job resolution, and will be able to start a more prosperous career.

It is also important to prepare students for entering the workforce by acquiring the skills required as members of society while still a student.

Participating in a long-term internship is a valuable opportunity to acquire basic business skills and a collaborative mindset. By gaining this kind of experience, you will increase your chances of being successful after joining the company and will be able to start your career in a more fulfilling state. Furthermore, for hiring companies responsible for training new graduates, being able to hire people who have gained business experience before joining the company should be a big advantage.

CareerPod encourages students to participate in long-term internships and provides information on recruitment as an opportunity to prepare for entering the workforce.
Long-term internship featured in “CareerPod”
Currently, “CareerPod” is posting long-term internships for carefully selected companies and NPOs completely free of charge.

Many new Japanese graduates who start their careers without being ready to enter the workforce worry about their own lack of skills and relationships with their superiors and clients. Essentially, providing value to customers, making them happy, and solving social issues through work is rewarding and a lot of fun.

Therefore, through the experience of an excellent long-term
internship, you can experience the joy of work and acquire “basic business skills” and “a mindset for collaboration.”
We would like to provide students with the opportunity to prepare to enter the workforce.

The purpose of these “CareerPod” activities is to “convey to students the wonders of working in society,” and we invite carefully selected companies and NPOs to participate so that students can have
opportunities to grow with peace of mind. I’m here.

Comment from Mantra Co., Ltd. Representative Director Shonosuke Ishiwata Mantra is a startup trying to eliminate language barriers in the world of entertainment. In addition to conducting research and development on AI technology specialized in manga, we also launched the
translation tool “Mantra” that realizes high-speed manga translation. We provide services such as “Engine” and “Langaku”, an English learning app using manga.

In recent years, with the rapid development of advanced technologies such as large-scale language models and image generation AI, the impact that a single person can create has become greater than ever before. Under these circumstances, we believe that the presence of human resources with strong expertise in both technology and business will become increasingly important. Therefore, Mantra runs an internship program to provide students with an opportunity to develop an interest in, learn about, and put into practice new technologies and business models.

Among them, we sympathized with the new job hunting style proposed by CareerPod, so we started posting new intern recruitment here as well. We welcome applications from anyone who is interested in building a career that combines technology and business at a high level. Comment from Hidekazu Watanabe, Chairman and Representative Director of Concord Academy Co., Ltd.
We are very pleased that Mantra Inc., which uses AI technology to support the overseas expansion of entertainment works, has adopted our CareerPod.

The use of AI technology has now become an important theme in any profession. Under these circumstances, Mantra Co., Ltd.’s long-term internship program, which allows students to experience cutting-edge AI technology and business models that utilize AI, is not only useful for the future career development of students, but is also a great initiative for the future of Japan. We believe that this is the case.

Through this listing of Mantra Co., Ltd., more students will gain valuable opportunities to grow as human resources who are strong in both technology and business. We are confident that this will be a big step towards realizing our company’s mission: “We want people to lead rich lives in which they realize their dreams and aspirations.” profile
