“I want to die”. During February 2013, this e-mail was sent by my best friend in my university, who was doing his job-hunting then.

In Japan, more than half a million students participate in job-hunting simultaneously every year. Students go into this frantic game with their desire and anxiety for their future careers.

“Recruit” is a personal story of Yo Toshino, my best friend from my university, and his job-hunting experience. This is also just one of the stories amongst more than half a million job-hunters in Japan.
