Hello, this is Minami. I'm here to do a bora bite in Okayama.

Volu-Bite is a service that comes from "volunteer" and "part-time
You can learn and experience things like agriculture, livestock, lodging and more.

I'm interested in a life in agriculture and lodging, but I don't have the environment to actually work, or I can only do it for a short period of time, or for a fixed period of time, but I want to do it.

I'd recommend this service to anyone who's used it, and I've actually used it!

So, in this article, we've compiled an overview of Volu-Bite, how to participate in it, and what you should bring with you.

If you are interested in Volu Bite, or if you are thinking about applying for a job right now, please read on.

(1) What is Volubite?

Volubite is an organization called Sanka Network, which has experienced It is a service that increases your chances of experiencing something you have never had the chance to do before.

Basically, it is recognized as a platform to find volunteer (part-time) farm work, but there are also jobs available for recruitment during long holiday periods, such as assisting in hotel management in tourist areas.

The genres range from farmers and ranchers to lodging, shops and eateries, and campgrounds. The number of genres seems to increase every year, so you may have a variety of choices in the future.

As you can easily see from the official website, this service is very useful for the following reasons

Anyone is welcome to apply.

According to the information on the official website, applicants for Volu Bite A whopping 90% of them have no experience.

You don't have to worry about your lack of experience. The people who will accept you will also accept you warmly.

In addition, you can choose where you want to go to work (i.e., where you will be accepted).

Accommodation It doesn't cost much or cost little.

It's free or very cheap, and you can do some work experience while sightseeing
You may be charged a fee for the use of a very beautiful place, but if it's a very beautiful place, you may be charged a fee.

Normal I mainly apply in places I don't go, so I can travel.

These three points are very appealing.

It's not a resort job, but it's as close in nature to that as you can get. . Some people may want to make money at a resort job, but a bola job is not. Experience is only a priority, so that's what people are looking for.

For more information on the good things we've done in practice I summarized it in this article.

②選考内容

When you want to participate in Borabite, you must first ask for detailed information about the place you are interested in on the website, and when you receive an email from the management, you must narrow down the places you want to apply for, send your resume and go through a selection process of phone interviews.

Well, I imagine there are few places they do in a formal way.

The first step is to send your resume, but the system only requires you to write a brief description of your background and education, etc., and then talk about the interview over the phone about when you can start working.

In my case, I also had the mindset of an interview rather than an interview.

The selection process is not carried out by the management of Boravite, but directly with the farmers. The Sanka Network, which is run by Sanka Network, is just a way to connect farmers with people who want to try Boravite. We do not conduct any intermediary screening.

I've never talked to a farmer before, so you might be nervous. To be honest, I was also nervous when I had the phone interview, but I was glad to hear that he seemed to be kind (he was actually very kind). (It was the wider one).

I assume that many of the people who have registered with Borabyte are using a new service and are willing to be flexible to new ideas.

(3) What you need.

What you need will be sent to you when you ask the management office for more information before you apply, but you should check Make sure you check out the ones that you feel you should have done. The following are things that you might want to check out personally, or would have been good for you in particular.

meal

(Basically, the place where we work is in the countryside and we have to use our car to go shopping, or if we don't have a car, someone else will. So buy what you think you'll need while you're at it, because you can only ask the Ugh.

If you're cooking for yourself, you should check how far you can go to check the range of food you have prepared and buy the things you are missing. It is. (In my case, it was marked as having rice.

dryer

I took it with me because it wasn't listed on my belongings, but when I got there, there was a hair dryer.

It's important to take care of yourself, so make sure you have a hair dryer to dry your hair quickly, especially if you have long hair.

desk

There's a difference in the work you can do if you have it or not. Some places don't seem to have it.

I took my computer with me and did some video editing and writing a few blogs there.

Of course, it's important to talk to the people who are there as much as possible to get new ideas, but at the same time, there will be things you want to do individually.

This is especially important if you are a long-term bola bite.

You might want to ask about the number of outlets, too. I also asked when I called.

Wash your face and bath-related goods.

In my case, I'm not in a hotel at the stage of gathering information online, so basically, I'm not a hotel, so I'm basically a bath towel and a washcloth. I got the information that you will need to But the best thing you can do is to ask questions during the phone interview.

The place I went was prepared for me.

You should ask if it's there unless you're a stickler or have a problem with it if it's not what you're using.

Asking is only once of shame, and not asking is a lifetime of shame. It's better to ask during a phone interview so you don't have to do any heavy lifting.

And of course you can ask again after the interview by phone or email, not only during the interview, but also for yourself.

(5) If you have any problems, you can consult with the management of Bora Bite.

I think a lot of people end up being frustrated because they don't make much money for the purpose of earning money.

However, Volubite is also a great support system. The way Volabyte does things itself is pretty clear, Q&A section is also available.

First of all, the management seems to hold occasional information sessions for Volubite. My impression is that it's particularly common before GW, summer break and spring break, when there are a lot of openings. For more information, please visit from the official facebook You can look for it.

Honestly, if you're unsure, you might get more information if you go.

You can also respond to questions by email as well as by phone.

Most of the people who accept us are also very flexible.

How was your experience?
I am very satisfied with the experience of participating in this program. There are many different kinds of host families, and all of them are very attractive places to visit.
