IDO Tomoko

Assistant Professor

I am specialized in career counseling for university students. University students’, such as internships and job hunting, will make first time selection among their careers. The choice involving a big change in the transition from school to society has often expectations and uneasiness. I am interested in the university student’s career formations. why they have anxiety, how they lead to a better career formation, and how will human characteristics affect career formation, and I am doing research.
Until now, I have been counseling and supporting university students' internships and finding employment that have a great influence on their career development. Among them, I have been looking for factors with excessive expectations and anxiety with them, aiming to be able to select careers with confidence.

I will continue to pursue the career formation of university students, especially focusing on connection between university and society, and I hope to use it for support as well.
