Today, I want to emphasize the significance of proper interview preparation. Now, what steps should you take for interview preparation? Let me share some methods:

Some might think, "Isn't that a given?" However, the reality is that a significant number of individuals enter interviews without adequate practice.

In summary, not preparing for interviews substantially heightens the risk of failure.

Here's why:

1. Difficulty expressing oneself effectively


  → Interviews hinge on the ability to articulate thoughts clearly and coherently. Without organized communication, even if you explain concepts, others may struggle to understand without a well-structured presentation.

2. Insufficient knowledge about the company


  → Those who neglect interview practice often fail to thoroughly research a company's characteristics. Job transitions necessitate alignment between oneself and the company. Hence, it's crucial to articulate clearly why you can contribute to the company and what the company offers.

Now, what steps should you take for interview preparation? Let me share some methods:

3. Document your thoughts on paper or a PC notepad


  → Write responses to common questions like "Reasons for changing jobs, why choose this company, and your strengths" in Japanese. This helps organize your thoughts. Feedback from a recruiter, if applicable, can be highly effective.

4. Engage in actual role-playing


  → After putting thoughts on paper, practice articulating them through role-playing. Explaining smoothly is surprisingly challenging. Script your responses and practice until you can articulate effortlessly. Seeking interview practice from a recruiter provides an environment closer to the real thing, boosting your confidence.

Preparing for interviews is often overlooked but crucial. Effort in these seemingly tedious tasks can set you apart. A recruiter offers valuable support, but success requires personal effort and skill enhancement.

I'm here to support your efforts and provide assistance.

For those considering a career change, reflect on your goals and take action. If changing jobs, I'm happy to offer advice. Those understanding company needs, putting in effort, and delivering results will find a rewarding career.

I hope this article boosts your motivation even a little.

Cheers to your success!
