In order to proceed to an interview with a company, it is necessary to pass the document screening process.

The way for passing the document screening process

You should conduct a corporate research study of the company you are applying to and find out what are their weaknesses.

If you can propose a solution to the problem and how you can solve it, you can pass the application screening process.

If you were a recruiter, wouldn’t you want to meet someone like this?

If you allow me to join your company, I will be able to solve your company’s problems with my experience and skills, and increase your company’s sales.

Job search activities are the same in the sales business.

The key is to propose how you can use your skills and experience to solve the client’s problems and convey the benefits to the client.

From here, we will tell you how to conduct specific, concrete corporate research.

It is quite practical and useful, so please use it as a reference.

It is only natural to look at the company’s website, but you should also look at the company’s review sites.

What you can find from a site are,

It has the company’s strengths, weaknesses of the company.

What kind of business development and business expansion are they doing, etc.?

By using a review site, it is possible to obtain information that only employees who work for the company know.

Search for information on the following information on review sites.

①company’s weak points

②Improvements that employees think are needed

Let’s look at them one by one.

①Company’s weak points

For example, let’s say you apply for a job in the application development field.

Suppose that a review site contains information about a company’s weaknesses, such as the fact that its apps are not easily downloaded.

You can then propose the creation of an English application for inbound foreign tourists.

②Points of improvement that employee-employers think should be made

For example, let’s say you apply for a job in systems development.

You knew from word-of-mouth websites that the employees working for the company still have analog business operations, there is still a lot of overtime work, and a lot of people are leaving the company.

You can then propose the development of a system to improve operational efficiency by reducing employee overtime hours and simultaneously reducing the turnover rate.

In fact, what you will find on word-of-mouth sites are the real voices of employees, information that you would not normally have access to.

Just because you have made a proposal does not mean that you must necessarily do the same work after you are hired, but it is also not a good idea to overstate things too much.

Make proposals within the scope of what you are able to do.
