Calling all personnel involved in recruiting and training foreign talent! Free Seminar on residency options and procedures for hiring staff from abroad.
Daijob Global Recruiting Co., Ltd, (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Yuji Shinohara; hereafter referred to as Daijob), a company involved in the recruiting and training of foreign talent, and owner of the Daijob.com, will be co-hosting a seminar with Human Academy Japanese Language School (Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Yoshitaka Arai), a Daijob group company, for personnel professionals involved in hiring and developing foreign talent .
Due to a shortage of human resources in Japan and an increase in companies expanding overseas, the recruitment of foreign talent is on the rise in Japan. In a survey given to 79 personnel staff at companies utilizing Daijob.com, we asked that if it isn’t possible to find qualified talent in Japan going foward, depending on the job, would companies instead consider seeking talent from overseas. (See infographic on the right). We received a positive response of 80% in regards to employing overseas talent, with 56.0% saying they would consider it, 26.67% saying they would strongly consider it, and 17% saying they would not consider it.
Additionally, due to an increase in foreign students coming to study in Japan, there will be a rise in foreign students looking for work in Japan. As a result, it is important to clearly understand residency status, a topic unfamiliar to those employing only Japanese nationals.
This seminar focuses particularly on immigration procedures and residency status, featuring Takuro Yamaguchi from ACROSEED, an Immigration Lawyer having worked with personnel in many leading companies, who will share know-how acquired while handling over 2000 cases.
