The idea that there are many people who have it harder than you is pretty bad. I'll tell you the end result of being paralyzed in thinking by corporate livestock.

The cost of transportation for job hunting is ridiculous. A story about how I struggled to pay for transportation to company information sessions.

Job hunters are often seen in town around fall every year.

Whenever I see them I often think back to my own job hunting days. They are all painful memories, but...

I was going to company information sessions every week at the time, and that gave me a hard time.

I would like to tell you about that time.

2022 Note: It seems that there are also online events these days. It's a good time to be alive!

I feel like I don't need a company information session for job hunting.

At the time, I always thought. "Company information sessions... aren't necessary...?" I thought.

At that time, I went to information sessions of various companies (about 40 companies), and most of what I heard at the sessions was just a brief description of the company's website, which was about 70% of what was on the website.

For example, "You can only hear the secret story at the briefing!" but most of the time

  • Corporate Origins
  • I do this kind of work.
  • Here are some of our seniors
  • Q&A

was most of the time, right? It was, well...a little refreshing to see the seniors in the flesh.

But if you go to a company information session.

  • More details can be learned
  • Attendance conveys motivation.
  • If you ask questions, it might be easier for them to remember your face.
  • Attendance at company information sessions may lead to additional points

Maybe there is a benefit to this kind of thing.

I don't know what the company actually thinks.

Some of them required me to attend a company information session, and I often wondered why it was necessary.

Job hunting funds that disappear every time I go to a company information session.

The 600,000-700,000 or so I had saved for job hunting at the time? Almost all of it disappeared in transportation expenses.(I was commuting to Tokyo from a rural area)

I had a part-time job at the time, but the only flexible part-time job that would allow me to prioritize my schedule for information sessions and interviews was a one-time job. (I was much indebted to the one-shot job.)

As a result, my funds for job hunting disappeared at a brisk pace.

Of course, when I went out to the city center, I concentrated on that day and packed my schedule with information sessions and interviews, but it was still quite difficult to arrange a good schedule in one day.

I am sure that most of the people who come from outlying areas stay at hotels or at friends' houses, but there were also some who came from time to time, like me.

Some students were carrying quite a bit of luggage.

As you can see, there are many job hunters who come from rural areas.
For companies that require participation in company information sessionsSeriously, think about the cost of transportation!"I was thinking, "I've been thinking about this for a long time.


Job hunting is stressful enough as it is, so we want to reduce the burden both mentally and financially as much as possible.

So I was thinking that it would be great if more and more new forms of job hunting like this were introduced to make job hunting as comfortable as possible.

Stress is enough only during the interview, right?
