Recruiting agencies innovate to find local talent abroad

Exclusive interviews, support services help Japanese companies hungry for qualified workers

Job-seekers in Taiwan gather for interviews arranged by Neo Career.

TOKYO -- Japanese companies are keen to hire more foreign employees, but many of them do not have the know-how to find the right people. Responding to this growing need, recruiting agencies have begun offering unique services.

Neo Career in October last year began a service to arrange intensive interview opportunities so that client companies can meet dozens of local candidates abroad for exclusive interviews. Recruiting agencies often hold "hiring fairs," inviting a number of companies and job seekers to meet. But inviting candidates exclusively for a single company can be more effective for the best matching of candidates to jobs, according to the agency.
