As of April 2023, the employment situation for university graduates in March 3 is 4% (as announced by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare), an improvement for the first time in three years, and the seller's market is strengthening.In such a seller's market, what kind of jobs are students looking for?

Recruit Employment Future Research Institute has released a survey regarding the characteristics of the organization in which 2024 graduates would like to work.

The organizations you want to work for are those that ``aim for stable and reliable business growth,'' ``grow by learning the company's know-how and model,'' and ``have general skills that can be applied to any company to some extent.'' The results show that a high percentage of students think that there are many talented people around them and that they can be inspired by them.
