A Supportive Social Environment for Self-regulation in Job-Hunters in Japan
Job-hunting is a complicated process which requires applicants to recognise what job they are actually looking for and what the companies are looking for in applicants. Applicants must be able to carry out an analytical process about the job requirement and the company, their own skills, competencies and goals, and their application activities. This can be considered as a self-regulated learning process where job-hunters learn to use the skills of self-observation, self-judgement and self-reaction. In this paper we present a supportive social environment that aims to prompt job-hunters to be more aware of the different aspects of job-hunting and support the utilisation of different skills required in the process.
