Japanese Launch Job Hunt Rallies

Cheerleaders are being used to drum up enthusiasm among students poised to enter the jobs market in Tokyo. Such pep rallies are more traditionally held to drum up enthusiasm and support for political causes and sports teams but several colleges and vocational schools in Tokyo are using them to build up job hunting momentum among their students.

Job hunters in a sea of black & white suits. Good luck on your job hunts!


  1. Lol! Rallies to tell student to get a job? But if companies cut jobs how to get one? Just lol. Wish them good luck and gambatte XD

  2. @Jim,
    The competition should be tougher for this year's graduates. :(

  3. I wish them luck too. Sadly, it's going to be harder for them, I know of a lot of companies having trouble and laying people off. I got a bit sad when I thought about it, many of my students are about to enter university, so I hope the economy improves for them before then.

  4. First time hearing something like!

  5. @Melanie,
    I too hope that the economy will improve soon!

    Wow, indeed.

  6. I haven't seen anything like this either. But I guess it's worth a shot. Maybe it will encourage those who wanted to be come freeters to try something else.

  7. I hope too the economy will improve, not just for the students, but for workers who were laid off and .... me :)

  8. @Thomas,
    I hope it managed to boost the morale amongst the fresh grads.

    and for me too!

  9. For Singapore, it would take at least 9 months before the economy bottoms out. After that, don't know what else will happen. :(

  10. @ECL,
    let's hope for the best.
