I’m a third-year university student and a job-seeker. This year the time for job-seekers to register with enterprises has been changed from October to December, to reduce students’ burden of studying and looking for work at the same time.
Job-seeking, however, actually started before December. There already have been, and will be, a lot of job fairs. I have registered with several websites for job-seekers. It seems that major sites hold job fairs on weekends, while lesser ones hold them on weekdays to avoid conflicting dates.
Since these sites exist for job-seekers, shouldn’t priority be given to their convenience. I’m OK with individual company explanation meetings or job interviews being held on weekdays but not job fairs. I have classes to attend every weekday and don’t want to be absent from them. So, job fairs should be held only on weekends.
