I think there are people who want to be executive drivers but don't know the specific method. There is more than one way to become an executive driver. There are also methods unique to executive drivers. So this time, I will introduce what kind of method is available.
■ Apply for a job offer / recruitment project
A common way to become an executive driver is to apply for a job or recruitment. Search for information published in job change information magazines and job change sites, and submit your resume. There is often an interview after the document screening. It is essential to have a driver's license as a condition of employment, and it may be advantageous if you have a lot of driving experience. Especially if you have a lot of driving experience in the area where the company you are applying for, you will get a positive evaluation because you are familiar with geography. Another point is the small history of accidents and violations. Traffic rules and safe driving are very important for executive drivers. If you repeat accidents and violations before applying, you will be less likely to be hired. Selection will be judged comprehensively through resumes and interviews.
■ Internal transfer at the company where you are employed
In some cases, a person hired as a sales position becomes an executive driver due to an internal transfer. Some people make a request to move, but some people move according to corporate policy. One example is when you remain in a company after retirement and work as a part-time employee. If the previous job does not have a post-retirement position, you will be assigned another job. There are cases where an officer driver is presented as an option at that time. As an officer driver, there are many officers who want an elderly person in the company. One of the reasons is that he has more driving experience than young people, but also because he has a long experience working in the same industry. It is desirable for executive drivers to be good at etiquette and familiar with the common sense and customs of the industry.
■ Introduction from acquaintance
Some people are introduced by acquaintances to become executive drivers. Although it is less than general recruitment and recruitment, there are cases where an acquaintance of an officer who is looking for an officer driver introduces him. This method only applies to people with such connections, but it is likely to be adopted when introduced. You may be interviewed after being referred, but often only a simple confirmation is required. This is because the hiring method is based on the credit of the referrer and the referrer. Therefore, both the referrer and the referrer must be careful. Introducing inappropriate people can be a nuisance to executives and companies. If the person who is introduced is also working loosely, there is a risk of causing trouble not only to the officers and companies but also to the person who introduced them.

Even if you know that there is a driver dispatch service in the world, you do not know where to contact even if you want to ask. You can find a lot of service companies by searching the Internet, but I'm worried about how to negotiate. What points should be kept in mind when negotiating?
■ Hearing about the desired driver immediately after making an inquiry
As soon as you contact the driver dispatch service company, we will hear about the driver you want. In that case, first go back to the starting point of why you ask for driving and select a person. If your goal is sightseeing, tell them and they will send you people who are familiar with the sights in the area. If you add a request to eat delicious food, you may be taken to a gourmet spot that only the locals know. Also, if you would like to ask for a location bus, you will be introduced to someone who has the skills to drive a large vehicle safely, knows the location suitable for the location, and is familiar with the shops that arrange location lunch boxes.
■ Estimate from the most requested dispatch form / operation system
According to the Specified Worker Dispatch Law, the dispatch of workers such as drivers is divided into three types: "general worker dispatch", "specific worker dispatch", and "introducer scheduled dispatch". The maximum contract period for "general worker dispatch" is 3 years, and there is no upper limit for the dispatch period for "specific worker dispatch". In addition, in "introducer dispatch", you will be dispatched as a temporary employee and will be working for a period of up to 6 months. You should carefully consider which contract method to use. In addition, it is also necessary to establish a concrete operation system, such as the time to be picked up every day and the time to wait as a driver. It is important to get a quote after firmly arranging the dispatch form and operation system.
■ Introducing a driver that matches your wishes, and if there is no problem, a contract is concluded!
If you tell the driver dispatch service company about the desired personnel, you will be introduced to the personnel who are likely to meet your wishes. If the purpose of use is for a day-only tour such as a sightseeing tour, there is no problem if you decide on the ease of talking and personality. However, when it comes to chauffeurs for executives with long-term contracts, driving skills are not the only skills required of that person. You should choose someone who has good business etiquette so that you will not be ashamed to accompany you anywhere. To do this, it's a good idea to have some candidates come out and have an interview. In addition, it is important to have a good relationship with the officer who will be the passenger for the longest relationship. It is a good idea to have an officer present at the time of the interview and select a person who is convinced.

What kind of day would you spend if you were dispatched to work as an executive driver? Are working hours irregular? What about overtime? Some people are curious about it. Let's take a look at the life cycle of how executive drivers live.
■ Main driver's wake-up time and how to spend the morning
Although the working hours of officers and drivers vary slightly depending on the dispatch contractor, they are generally restricted from 9 am to 6 pm, 9 hours including 1 hour break. The wake-up time will be adjusted to the start time of work, but in the morning you must have enough time to inspect and clean the vehicle. In particular, cleaning should always keep the inside of the car clean so that the officers can spend as much comfort as possible. Therefore, it seems that many people get up early. When the car is in good condition, put it in place. If you are asked to go to work before working hours, you need to wake up at that time. In the morning after the transfer of officers, we will perform simple cleaning and checking inside the car.
■ The main way of spending the afternoon of the driver
Depending on where you are dispatched, you may have some free time to spend the afternoon. It is also possible to take a break or a nap in the workplace where there is a driver's waiting room. Sometimes you can chat with your fellow drivers over a cup of tea, read a magazine, or play on your smartphone. On the other hand, there are times when the schedule of visits is full in the afternoon, and when officers have an appointment for a night banquet, they may have to wait hours in the car until the banquet is over. There are days when the officers are sent to their homes at midnight, and then the work is finally completed after cleaning and inspecting the inside of the car, and it is difficult to manage their physical condition when working hours become irregular. Furthermore, although the schedule of officers is decided in advance, there are many cases where the car is suddenly released in the afternoon. The way the executive driver spends the afternoon seems to have plenty of breaks, but it can also be said to be time to prepare for a sudden job or an evening transfer.
■ Driver's work end time and bedtime
If the officer's schedule is as determined in advance, the business end time will be the fixed time agreed in the contract. There may be some work left to do, such as filling out daily reports and cleaning the car, but overtime work is rare. Therefore, there is plenty of time at night. However, it is the job of the executive driver to stay on top of it. Sometimes you have to answer a sudden night call. For example, due to a sudden trouble with a business partner, a call may come in after the business is completed. In this way, bedtime is not usually irregular, but if a sudden situation occurs, the work end time will be considerably delayed, so bedtime will extend to midnight. Let's do it.

Now is the time to hire executive car drivers by dispatch. However, I'm worried about leaving the driving to someone who doesn't know what kind of person it is. How can you tell the driver's aptitude? This time, I will introduce what points you should keep in mind during the interview.
■ Sudden absenteeism is NG! Diligence
One of the merits of using temporary staffing is that "when and as much as you need". To put it the other way around, it doesn't make sense if you can't use it when you need it. First, make sure you have a solid sense of professionalism in your work. Absence without permission is out of the question, but as a member of society, make sure that you are a member of society, such as how much you manage your physical condition on a daily basis and whether you are punctual. It is even better to have diligence, such as learning the way and studying the business of the company you are hired on a regular basis.
■ Closed room while driving! Whether you have the ability to communicate with people
While driving, the time I spend alone with the driver is more uncomfortable than I expected. In the car, you often use your smartphone to work or check materials, but on the other hand, the inside of the car is a little break time between work. You may discover new ideas and discoveries by slightly switching your work brain here. In such a case, a smart driver will call out at the right time. A person with high communication skills is not a person who is good at speaking, but a person who can read the "between" of the other person. It is a so-called "person who can read the air". When you don't want to talk, you keep silent, and when you want to take a break, you go out with a light conversation. I would like to choose a driver with such ability.
■ Whether you have a drinking habit or a fighting habit
Finally, make sure you don't have a drinking habit. I'm not saying it's bad to drink, but the driver and alcohol are the most incompatible combination. As a result of drinking too much the day before, alcohol remained and I was caught by drunk driving ... I can not see it. It is out of the question for those who are drunk and indiscriminately violent or who have a fighting habit from the beginning. Basically, it is safer to choose a person who does not drink alcohol. If not, people who can drink only on holidays and people who can drink alcohol with moderation are good. If you fail to select a driver, it will have a negative effect on you, so you should be very careful.

There are many opinions that even a secretary does not know what kind of work he is doing. Certainly, as the name "secret" implies, secretaries often know confidential matters and boss personal information that can only be known in the executive class, and it is a profession with many mysterious parts. This time, I would like to introduce a secret job that only such a secretary can do.
■ About schedule management and clerical work
Coordinating and managing the boss's schedule is as important as managing the schedule when it comes to secretaries. Normally, a businessman manages the schedule by himself, but the secretary is attached to the officer so that he can release the officer from troublesome chores and concentrate on his work as the original officer. Adjusting the time so that internal meetings with each department can be held efficiently, and paying attention to the type of restaurant when having dinner with important business partners, it seems that the faces of officers are not smeared with mud. , Accurate work and careful consideration are required. Be aware of the speed of clerical work correctly and carefully, and manage the schedule assuming various situations.
■ About telephone, email, and customer support
As an officer's secretary, it is important to be ashamed when dealing with phone calls, emails, and visitors. We may contact our business partners on behalf of our officers, so be careful not to be rude. It's natural to use the correct honorifics, and to write emails and letters in a business-friendly format. When it comes to phone calls, you may get the boss's personal phone call on your behalf. You will also receive the boss's mail every day. Even in such areas, it is necessary to strictly adhere to the personal information of the boss and take appropriate measures. If it's easy, you need to make your own judgment without asking the boss, but be careful not to make a bad judgment and embarrass your boss.
■ What are the rare tasks that actually exist?
In addition to clerical work and schedule adjustment, other tasks that are rare for ordinary clerical workers include arranging dinner and souvenirs. After coordinating the dinner schedule with the other party, you probably have to meet with the other party's secretary or sales representative to think about which place, which food to serve, and which sake to make a delicious restaurant. .. As with any dinner, you can't afford to fail, but if you're a very important business partner who needs to be enthusiastic, you have to be careful not to miss every detail. After work, I sometimes stop by the store to see what the private room looks like or eat some food. The same is true for souvenirs, and you will need to choose one that is popular these days or one that suits your tastes. Therefore, secretaries need to keep an eye on trends and trends in the world.
