The book covers eight themes related to job hunting: self-analysis,
industry/occupation/company research, visiting seniors/people you have connections with concerning their companies, writing a letter showing your reasons for applying for a job, creating application documents, participating in internships, participating in explanatory meetings, and interviews. In this way, the student can follow the actual flow of job-hunting.

Each lesson consists of the following three steps, so the student can learn in step by step:
Step 1: The student studies the words and knowledge necessary for the lesson.
Step 2: Through listening comprehension, listening/reading comprehension, and reading comprehension questions/exercises, the student deepens his/her understanding of job hunting in Japan.
