Kisotsu: Former graduate

Former graduates are people who have already graduated from university or graduate school without any working experience as a permanent member of staff at a company. When a person cannot get a job offer at the time of graduation, they will be categorized as a former graduate. Most Japanese corporations usually prefer recruiting new graduates in their graduation year. In recent years, however, an increasing number of corporations have targeted former graduates as well in their recruitment activities, so there is now more chance for them to get a job after graduation.
