In Japan, everything ends in March and starts in April except for new years.
This means that practically every student is graduated from school in March and starts working in April. Therefore, in the last year of school, students need to look for a job as well as study for their graduation.
Two of my students, one Ph.D and the other Master’s, are graduating next March, and they are looking for jobs. Today, Saturday, I helped them with their interviews both coming on Tuesday.
Getting a job is very difficult this year especially due to the earthquake. Employments of many graduates were canceled, meaning they might loose one year. I am not optimistic about their pursuits of their careers, although I will try to do my best.
In the evening, Katya and I played tennis in Kose Sports Park. The courts have been under repair, and we were not able to use it till April comes.
Courts were completely renewed.
Katya is getting better. She was a sprinter when a student, and she runs very quickly. I think she will make a very good player.
