According to Paiza Survey,an IT career support service provider based in Minato-ku, Tokyo, released the results of a survey identifying the most popular companies among students aspiring to become IT engineers. The survey targeted students from universities, graduate schools, vocational schools, and technical colleges registered with Paiza's job information search service "Paiza Shinsotsu," focusing on those graduating between 2024 and 2027.
