As the number of new graduates hired in industries traditionally popular with female university students, such as the travel industry and the airline industry, has decreased due to the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a noticeable change in career paths to other industries, as well as employment in the information and communications industry, such as IT engineers, following the previous year.There were also students who thought carefully about their future careers and went on to study at overseas graduate schools and universities instead of finding employment, or went on to vocational schools to improve their skills.
Professor Jun Ito, Director of the Career Support Department, made the most of the tangible and intangible resources unique to Showa Women's University in the process of job hunting, which is said to be ``early'', ``long-term'', and ``overcrowded''. I highly appreciate the students who did. “I would like my juniors to emulate that attitude. I also feel the importance of diversity in an organization in an era of uncertainty about the future. I hope that you will not forget your attitude of continuing to learn as a graduate and that you will shine brightly."
At Showa Women's University, career education to design your own way of life, a job hunting support program tailored to each individual, and a mentor system for working adults so that students can acquire the ability to design their own way of life with a focus on occupation and employment. We provide career support with three pillars.
Under the unique adult mentor system, the university provides opportunities to directly meet and interact with working women in their 30s to 50s who have built up diverse careers in a wide range of fields.About 370 mentors have been registered through public recruitment and selection, and students can meet mentors in various careers, not just in their desired industry or occupation, and discuss career plans and lifestyles after graduation.
