A reason for effective job-seeking: 'Career Design'
Career Design' refers to efforts to support students’ employment, career paths and to lead a fulfilling life by compelling them to imagine 'the person I want to become.'
Finding employment is not the goal, the goal is considering oneself from the perspectives of both 'job/career' and 'life/career'.
With this goal in mind, we offer classes and support programs to help students build a satisfactory career
First Year
1st Year
Beginning a new university life.
What kind of future shall we devise?
What do you need to do in order to figure out in what field you want to work after graduation?
Generally, it is when you become aware of your graduation that you begin to seek employment. In the midst of this, students worry: ‘I do not know what field or what occupation is right for me!’ Your university years serve to decide in which field to work as a member of society, as well as where to acquire fundamental knowledge and perform research to do so. Let us imagine and expand your interests from the first year.
Subject /
Programme Examples
  • New Students Guidance: introductory Career Design seminars held for new students.
  • Career Design I: Creating opportunities to consider what is important for independent university life.

The time when you have already adjusted to student life.
How to address your interests calmly?
Second-year students have already adjusted to university life. This is the period of the four years in the university when you can work more calmly. You should challenge yourself in studies, club activities, volunteering and part-time work. Careers are a way to use your time in life, and you choose this path at university. Please design (decide) your career in student life.
Subject /
Programme Examples
  • Industry Seminars: The situations and markets of various industries and examination policies, among other topics.

Job hunting, seminars, and classes
The heaviest of the four years.
What do you need to design your own future?
In the third year, time-management is important. Being aware of your career and restricting your rough path, take the time to get to know many occupations. Let us move on with self-understanding, as well as job and company selection. Moreover, there is a tradition in which graduates who have experienced such concerns support current students in their job search at the ‘Interview Preparedness Seminar (nicknamed ‘Mentai’), conveying interview basics through to mental readiness in order to win.
Subject /
Programme Examples
  • Interview Preparedness Seminar: A seminar where faculty, graduated students, and forth-year students who have job offers get together to support students who are currently seeking employment.
  • Career Design Ⅲ: Creating opportunities to consider what is important to work in society with a sense of fulfilment and motivation.

Gakushuin University holds job-related seminars, as well as multiple on-campus company introduction sessions, while the Faculty of Economics offers its own practical courses to support job-seeking students and students with offers to take their first step as members of society.
