Please remain vigilant to aggressive solicitations to participate in job hunting classes and careers seminars.
Recently, there have been incidences involving "leader training" and "global careers" events where people are compelled to participate in weeks-long self-help and careers seminars in Japan and overseas with high fees subsequently charged. Cases have also been reported of unauthorized use of classrooms to hold seminars.
An increasing number of consumer claims are also being seen involving university students lured by the prospect of finding employment being solicited to participate in employment courses and English conversation lessons over long periods of time. Aggressive solicitation tactics and high fees are both distinguishing features of such cases.
Devious methods of solicitation involving friends and acquaintances may also be employed. For example, another pattern that has emerged is the relentless solicitation over long periods by employees who create an atmosphere in which it is difficult to refuse by getting fellow students already affiliated with the group to shrewdly make invitations to the effect that "You should come along to this interesting class."
All Keio students are requested to ensure that they do not become implicated in such inappropriate solicitation and to tread cautiously while dealing with any problems that do occur in a decisive manner. If you do find yourself involved, do not suffer alone and consult with the section responsible for student services or careers at your base campus.
