New Campaign Launched Offering Free Online Japanese Lessons for Foreign IT Engineers
～Two-month offer for any users finding new work through Daijob AGENT～
Daijob Global Recruiting Co., Ltd, (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Yuji Shinohara; hereinafter referred to as Daijob), a business subsidiary of Human Holdings Co., Ltd., owner of Daijob.com, a job site for bilingual talent, will be launching a campaign to support Japanese learning with Human Academy Japanese Language School operated by Human Academy Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Yoshitaka Arai.), also a subsidiary. The campaign is offering private online Japanese lessons free-of-charge for two months to foreign IT engineers who have found work through Daijob’s recruiting service Daijob AGENT.
◆Background of Campaign
According to the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry(※1), there will be a shortage of approximately 370,000 IT personnel by 2020. As a result, companies are increasingly hiring not only Japanese IT professionals, but those from abroad as well. Yet while many foreigners are keen to work in Japan, they are stymied by their inability to speak Japanese. This is why Daijob has partnered with Human Academy Japanese Language School. Our aim is to support language acquisition of foreign engineers wanting to work in Japan, while also helping to solve the domestic shortage of IT professionals.
◆Outline of Campaign
Japanese Language Proficiency Support Campaign for IT Engineers
Open to foreign IT Engineers who have found work using Daijob’s recruitment service Daijob AGENT by June 30, 2018
Two months of private online Japanese lessons (up to 8 lessons, 45 minutes each) Free of charge
