Job hunting Rule 20: America’s Job Market



リーマンショック以降の落ち込んだ時期に比べると、ここ最近は就職市場が持ち直したと言われますが、実際、人材を必要とする企業が増えている手応えを感じます。特に活発なのはITですが、それ以外にも、銀行、製造業、旅行関係など幅広い業界で、営業,アカウンティング、技術などのさまざまなポジションで新たな人材が求められています。中には転職していったポジションの後任者を探すケースもありますが、多くが盛業により人手が足りなくなったことによる新規の人材募集です。

Compared to the time surrounding the subprime mortgage crisis, it’s been said that the job market has picked up recently here, and in fact, I feel that the number of companies hiring new employees is increasing. The IT field is especially vivacious, but other companies in various industries such as banking, manufacturing, and travel have been hiring many employees in sales, accounting, and technology-related positions. There are some cases where the company will hire to find a successor for employees who are leaving the company, but in many cases the companies recruit because they no longer have enough manpower to support their growing business.

しかし、ここ数年の傾向として言えるのが、求人数が増えてはいても、企業がリスクをおかさなくなっているということです。つまり、日系企業であっても未経験者を採用して教育するという、ある意味、ゆとりのある採用は行わず、最低でも特定のポジションでの2、3年の経験者を希望しています。

However, it can be said that the trend in the past few years is that even if the number of jobs is increasing, companies are no longer taking risks. In other words, even Japanese companies do have the leisure of training an inexperienced person and instead hope to find someone with a few years of experience at a minimum.

それでは、大学を卒業したばかりの未経験者、中でもOPT保持者はどのような覚悟で就職活動に取り組めばいいのでしょうか? その詳細は次回、お話したいと思います。
So, what should those who have just graduated from college, or those who are job searching with OPT prepare in order to tackle their job search? I will talk about it in more detail next time!
