A day in the life of a designer recruiter at Cocone!
※This article is machine translated.
Hello everyone. My name is Sake, an intern in charge of public relations at Cocone Corporation.
In fact, I published an article last week that I think is very interesting, and I would like to share it with you.
It is an article about one of the many departments at Cocone, the Designer Recruitment Department.
(Previous article → https://www.wantedly.com/companies/cocone/post_articles/351766)
I was able to learn a lot more about the designer hiring manager in this interview,
There is still something I don’t understand.
Designer recruiters, what do you usually do?
This is the question.
I mentioned in the last issue that the designer recruiter is responsible for all tasks related to recruitment, including portfolio selection, interviews, internship events, company information sessions, and PR activities to make people aware of KOKONE.
However, the word ” recruitment” somehow conjures up a strong image of hiring new graduates,
I am not sure what they do outside of that period.
Perhaps the designer recruiters are just pretending to be busy.
If I leak that inside information to the president, there could be a cash prize.
So today, we’re going to get up close and personal with a day in the life of a designer hiring manager,
I would like to explore the reality of the designer hiring manager.
Dress discreetly and disguise yourself.
So I went all black to blend in with the darkness.
Speaking of which, Cocone has a comfortable office environment, so the room is always
I hear it is brightly lit with indirect lighting.
By the way, this is the same person we will be following closely as last time. He is Mr. Nakazawa, a senior designer recruiter.
I am concerned about the blackness of the clothing, but I will start the close contact immediately.
2. a day in the life of a designer recruiter
9:30 AM Departure
Ms. Nakazawa arrives at the office.
The mascots waiting at the entrance of Cocone say, “How are you?” and call out to them.
[9:40 AM Water change ]
I noticed that the water is running out and I am replacing the tank.
Mr. Nakazawa says his family is a rice dealer. Is he used to handling heavy things?
[Morning meeting at 10:30 AM ]
They have a daily morning meeting to share the progress of their work.
All personnel in charge will check to ensure that there are no omissions among the recruiters.
[11:00 AM – Online meeting]
The recruiter will meet online with those who are interested in joining Cocone.
At the most, they are interviewed five or more times a day.
The reason for this is that when hiring, Cocone has a casual interview before the first interview to talk with candidates about what they want to ask about Cocone and what Cocone is doing now, and to get them to like Cocone.
And since Cocone hires year-round, you can apply every day,
Both new graduates and mid-career hires will have this casual interview.
That’s why there are so many interviews.
I almost found it for a moment, but I cheated with a stuffed cat meow.
[12:30 PM Lunch ]
Lunch is served at the Cocone cafeteria.
The usually cool Mr. Nakazawa was all smiles at this moment.
This is how it is done at Cocone ‘s company cafeteria, Cocone Deli,
You can enjoy a nutritionally balanced set meal that changes daily.
It’s great that it’s both delicious and healthy.
By the way, I stupidly forgot to make a reservation at Cocone’s deli that day.
We could not eat lunch at the deli, so we had plain pasta that we brought from home.
It is just a mass of carbohydrates and has no nutritional balance.
For some reason, the plain pasta I had in one corner of the cafeteria was a little salty.
Everyone should reserve a table at the deli and have a well-balanced lunch when you come to Cocone!
[Online meeting ]
They have online meeting business this afternoon as well,
Mr. Nakazawa was confined to the conference room.
Incidentally, the Cocone was due to an increase in online interaction due to the Corona disaster,
A number of soundproofed meeting rooms have been added.
Under the emergency declaration in September, about 70% of Cocone employees were working remotely.
Perhaps it is these facilities that allow employees to work in a comfortable environment.
fleeting (glimpse, glance, etc.)
Huh! Ms. Nakazawa is not here!
Where in the world…oh.
When I took my eyes off the road, I was talking with Mr. Tomita, the president of Kokone.
If they see my antics, they will fire me before I can expose the realities of being a designer recruiter.
They hide in the shadows and ask how things are going.
They are busy with online interviews, meetings with employees, and coordinating work.
[PM15:00 Exercise for a break from work]
I am learning about recruitment while holding dumbbells in the gym.
It’s so stoic that the trainer at the gym stands with you and studies with you.
I thought, “I was on a balance ball,” but the gym trainer was on a balance ball.
I never thought I’d see the difference in class in a place like this…
[PM18:30 Leave the office ]
Well, I guess it’s time for Mr. Nakazawa to leave…
Huh! Nakazawa-san is not here again!
Where in the world…
Oh? There’s something on Mr. Nakazawa’s desk.
I’m going home!!!!
Whenever I took my eyes off the interns, they left exactly on time, leaving the interns behind.
I feel I have glimpsed the essence of the employees of Kokone Corporation, who value work-life balance.
This is how I closely followed a day in the life of a designer recruiter, but the job of a designer recruiter is more solid than I thought, and in addition
The work system is also white, and apparently it is difficult to get a golden ticket.
(me being left behind)
So, how was your day in the life of a designer recruiter?
I’m fascinated by the designer recruiter and what it’s like to be a Kokone employee at work.
We would be happy to know.
I think it’s time for me to leave too.
