The job hunting schedule for university students who are planning to graduate in the spring of 2016 has been "postponed", and the job hunting activity has been prolonged. Tomoya Yoshioka (President of Rikkyo University) issued an unusual urgent message calling for fair and equitable job hunting activities for companies.Chair Yoshioka urges us to refrain from submitting confirmation documents for acceptance of the offer and holding students for a long time before October 10, the official start date of the offer.

The urgent message is entitled "Implementation of Fair and Fair Recruitment Selection Activities". Refrain from requesting the submission of documents confirming the intention to accept the offer before ③ Appropriately evaluate the academic performance up to the year before graduation and the end of the job interview, etc. We requested four items of consideration.

According to a national survey conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and the Job Hunting Council, nearly 6% of universities and junior colleges think that job hunting has been prolonged due to the "postponement" of job hunting schedules for college students. It has become clear.This is because there are a mixture of companies that carry out job hunting "backward" and companies that do not, and it is thought that almost half of the universities and junior colleges have an impact on academics such as writing graduation thesis and attending classes. The harsh reality of wrinkles has been highlighted.

Since the job hunting start date on October 10, the job hunting council has been conducting a fact-finding survey of universities, junior colleges, technical colleges, and companies nationwide in the first year of the change in the job hunting period, and the impact of job hunting and recruitment activities on students. I will analyze in detail about.
