We aim to create an environment where students can think about their future from their early years of school and think carefully about their careers, not only about receiving job offers, but also providing skills and knowledge for career realization through a range of self-analysis tools and free courses
Mynavi Corporation (Head office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Yoshiaki Tsuchiya; hereinafter referred to as “Mynavi”) launched “My CareerStudy,” (URL: https://mcstudy.mynavi.jp/), a new career learning site for all university students, on April 12 (Wed.) to help them think about their future and to acquire knowledge and skills to realize their careers.
[Background and Purpose of The Service]
Due to the decline in the working-age population, labor shortages have become a serious issue for Japan. Furthermore, rapid advances in the digital field and changes in the industrial structure are expected to place even greater emphasis on the individuality and skills of each student in a society where the future is uncertain and difficult to predict. In the future, a diverse workforce with diverse values and skills will be in demand.
Under these circumstances, Mynavi is releasing this service with the aim of creating an environment in which university students can think about their future from their early school years and think more carefully their careers beyond receiving job offers, rather than just making obtaining job offers their goal.
