Why Don't You...?

履歴書は破り捨てて、ストーリを語らせたらどう? 


この社会は夢のないもので溢れているわね
日本が西洋のように景色が美しくないのは
ディズニーランドのように楽しくないのは
景色がグレイなのは

効率を求めて美やロマンを切り捨ててしまったからよ

それと同時に人々の語りぐさというのも
論理や効率を求めすぎているのか
どんどん単調なものになっている

現代をもがく若者を
すっごく端的に描写した友人の
その夢とロマンのなさに絶句したがあったわ

自分の今までの人生を端的にまとめるものが
履歴書、レジュメ、CV
(読み方はなんでもいいわ)

だと思うんだけど、
あれって見ていてとっても退屈よね

その人のカラフルでドラマのある人生が、
最も端的な一文でまとめられてしまうんだもの

採用担当が退屈で寝てしまうのも分からなくもないわ

たしかに面接で、その人がどういう経験をして、
うちの会社では何ができるかということを知るのは
採用側は重要よね

機械的な仕事なら、やはり効率が大事でしょうから
それもそれで納得よ

でも、クリエイティブ、なにかを創るという仕事の上では、
履歴書はナンセンスよね

事実をクルーに物語を聞き出す手だてにはなるけど
私だったらその人の物語がみたいわよ

その人が今まで自分の人生に起きた
ドラマをどう表現するのかが知りたいのよ

わたしは、目の前にある人生は一種の幻想のようなものだと
捉えているの

だから、その人の捉え方でまったく物語も違ってくるのよね

「商社勤務の34のOL」よりも

海を越えたヨーロッパの国々から、
人々の人生を彩る濃赤な魔法のドリンクを運ぶ船の司令官

の方が素敵でしょ?
(あれ?微妙だったかしら)


この間ね、ふと外国人が営んでいるワイン屋さんに入ったの
そこの店主が最初にかけた言葉が
「So What's your story?」
という一言だったのよ

素敵じゃない?
いいじゃないね!

未来の景色を創っていく人はこのストーリーを魅力的に語れる人であるべきだと思うのよ

ぶっちゃけてしまえば人間の経験なんて大差がないんだから
ようはあなたの語りぐさなのよ

それが人を惹き付けるか、ワクワクさせるかどうか

グレイなビルに覆われた都会を続けるのか
ディズニーランドにも勝る、夢のある景色が実現するのか
は、そういう人々を選べるかにかかってると思うのよ

ロマンのある未来が欲しいのなら、
履歴書は破り捨てて、ストーリを語らせたらどう?



This society is just overflowing with people with no dreams.
Much like the West, Japan's is not a beautiful backdrop.   
It's not fun like Disneyland; the scenery is just gray.
It's because beauty and ambition have been cast aside in favor of the pursuit of efficiency. 
I've even said this before.
At the same time, the logic of the topics of the stories that people tell tends to look too hard for efficiency and rapidly becomes monotonous. 
I was left speechless by my friend's extremely candid depiction of young people struggling in the modern era, their lack of dreams and romance.
The thing that briefly summarized it all for me up until now is my résumé, my CV, you can call it whatever you want.
That was what I thought, but, looking at it now, that's really boring, isn't it?
An item that summarizes those peoples' colorful and dramatic lives, like a machine.
No wonder even recruitment officers fall asleep out of boredom.
Certainly, during interviews, finding out what kind of experience a person has, what they can do for the company, is important for the recruitment side of things.
In terms of mechanical jobs, efficiency is naturally important, I also agree with that.
But for a job where you create things, a résumé is nonsense, don't you think?
For the crew, it becomes a way to draw the facts out of the story, but if it were me, I'd like to see those peoples' stories 

I want to find out how their drama is expressed in their own lives up until now. 
For me, I grasp the life that's in front of my eyes as some sort of fantasy.
So, those peoples' stories will completely change depending on how they perceive them.
Compared to a 34 year old female office worker in the trading service, isn't the life of a commander of a ship that's crossed the ocean from Europe, carrying a magic deep-red drink that colors peoples' lives, so much more fantastic? 
(Eh? Maybe that's a little too convoluted?) 
Not too long ago, I entered a wine shop owned by a foreigner and the first words out of the shopkeeper's mouth were, "So, what's your story?"
Isn't it amazing? 
Isn't that great!
I think the people who are going to create the landscape for the future should be able to tell their "story" in an appealing way.
To be honest, human experiences aren't so different, so it all boils down to your own story.
Whether that attracts people, or excites them.
Will they continue with these cities covered in gray buildings?
Will that dreamlike landscape, surpassing even Disneyland, ever be realized?
Ha, I think it all depends on if one can choose those people.
If you want that future full of adventure, why don't you toss out your résumé and just tell them your story?
