Job Hunting For New Graduates

Job hunting of new graduates in Japan may be a bit unique.
First, there is an unwritten rule in a dress code. For example, they have to wear a black suit and shoes and a hair style for women is almost fixed.
Haven’t you seen these job hunting students wearing the same outfit in Japan?

The recruitment standards of Japanese companies also may be different from that of foreign countries. It is not very important for Japanese companies if new graduates are immediately effective.
Japanese companies prefer someone who has a potential and can fit in their companies.
They do not mind supporting and providing training from a basic level.

Also, the step for job hunting is unique here. Students start job hunting approximately a year before graduation and in most cases, they find employment before graduation, then new employees start working all together in April.
