Job hunting Rule 11:Your desired job


大学卒業が間近な方から「私はジャーナリズムを専攻しているので、専攻に関連した職種に就きたいのですが、可能性はありますか?」という質問をいただきました。

I received a question from a college student who is close to graduating college. He asks, “I am majoring in journalism. Is it possible to get a job related to my major?”

最近の登録者の方々には、自分はこういう仕事がしたいと明確な意志を持った方、ただ単に仕事が必要だからという方とのふたつに分かれる傾向があります。ただ仕事が必要だからということも十分、就職の動機にはなりますが、専攻したことを社会で生かしたいという目標をきちんと持つことは、働く上で非常に大切なことです。

Applicants who have recently registered tend to fall into one of two groups: those with a clear intention to do a specific type of job, and those who simply need any type of job. Just working out of necessity is enough as that becomes your motivation for a job, but having a distinct goal such as to make use of your major in society is very important to working.

しかし、一方でご自分の希望職種にこだわりすぎて「●●以外はやりたくない」というフレキシビリティーに乏しい方は企業側に敬遠されるということも、ぜひ知っておいてください。企業は「●●しかできない」人材よりも「●●に強いが他のことにも興味を持って臨める」人材を求めています。

希望職種を明確にしつつも、自分自身の可能性について別の角度から眺めることのできる客観性、また、適切な言葉づかいや服装、時間厳守など社会生活における最低限の常識をわきまえた上で、就職活動を成功に導いてください。

On the other hand, it is possible to be too particular about your job search. Please be aware that candidates who are not flexible and say things like, “I don’t want to do anything other than ~ ~” are often shunned by companies. Companies look for employees who say, “I am strong with ~ ~ but I am interested in other things” rather than those who say, “I can only do ~ ~.” Even if you have a clear job in mind, being able to objectively see your potential from a different angle, along with appropriate business sense such as proper manners and attire, will lead to successful job hunting.
