TOKYO -- Japanese staffing agency Pasona Group will hire up to 1,000 young adults who have not found a job, helping them gain work experience while providing training so they have a better shot at landing full-time employment in a few years.

Pasona will take on college and high school graduates as two-year contract workers in April. The graduates will join divisions such as personnel or sales at the agency's office on Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture. They will learn about business and rural revitalization while also receiving foreign-language lessons.
