HONG KONG -- Job placement platform Wantedly has expanded to Hong Kong's labor market, where the Tokyo startup aims to increase the chances of a good match by providing a detailed profile of potential employers.

Wantedly receives fees from businesses and connects them with job seekers. It differentiates itself from other job search sites by posting philosophies, goals and videos from companies. Job seekers interested in prospective employers can even converse with current hires.

Hong Kong is home to many workers who frequently switch to employers with more to offer as they seek to build careers. Job seekers typically send a huge number of resumes to potential employers, but many quit in a short period after failing to adapt to the corporate culture.

The company has also entered Singapore and Germany.

Wantedly lists more than 400 fee-paying employers in Hong Kong. Within a maturing local economy, the preferences of young workers are diversifying, with more placing less importance on pay or job stability.
