Japanese Job Requires Applicants to Sing Anime Karaoke

In their junior year of university, Japanese students go through a special kind of hell called job hunting season.

Unlike in the States, where finding a post-college job is a pretty flexible process, Japan’s job hunting takes place in a fixed time period, and is, for most students, an incredibly stressful time in which they must don identical black suits and go to interviews with dour-looking corporate execs.

But entertainment and hospitality company City Communications does things a little bit differently.

Specifically, in order to advance to the interview stage, applicants to City Communications must karaoke one anime song – while representatives from the company listen in cosplay, natch.

The sessions take place at an anime song cafe run by City Communications in Yokohama.

A far cry from the typical Japanese job hunt indeed.
