ICU Career Design Week was held
Update: December 8, 2016
ICU Career Design Week was held from November 28th (Mon.) to December 2nd (Fri.)
This event was held intensively over five days during the autumn break, with the cooperation of "Job Study*," an inter-industry organization of personnel recruiting divisions. The event was initiated in response to students' requests for information on who, where, and how people work, to give them a concrete image of what it's like to work before actually looking for a job, and to employers' apprehension about students' being too busy during the job hunt to really think about what it means to work, and their narrow perspectives.
On the first two days, November 28th (Mon.) and 29th (Tues.), programs such as an industry study workshop and panel discussions were held by Job Study*. In addition, a special program titled "Hot Debate: Reveal the reality of job hunting!" was held on the 29th. In this program, four students who have finished their job hunting talked about questions they encountered during their job hunt and asked these questions directly to recruitment officers to find out the true intentions of business corporations and their recruitment systems.
This was a rare opportunity to hear directly from the people responsible for hiring decisions. Students listened intently and many could be seen taking careful notes.
A seminar where recruitment staffs from different industries get together to think about what seminar will be helpful for students and, plan seminars by different industries according to what they talked about. These seminars are not just joint information sessions, but great opportunities to think about "working" through panel discussions, and has the policy, "adults and students talk heart to heart". Currently, there are 22 companies in this program. （Job Study HP）
