Welcome to all readers of our World Stage Blog!

Finally March came by, and the cold of winter is fading away little by little. And from now on, as many of you may be aware, is the start of the recruitment process for jobs in Japan aimed at students cursing their last year of university education.

In order to inform all the future applicants that wish to land into a job position in a company in Japan, we want to introduce you all to the Japanese recruitment system called Shūshoku katsudō, better known as shūkatsu. Shūkatsu refers to the simultaneous recruitment of new graduates or shinsotsu saiyō done by companies each year in Japan. This unique style of job hunting that currently only exist in Japan can be quite challenging for many foreigners that are not familiar with it. That’s why we, as World Stage, would like to help you with the process and give you the help that you need through your job search!

First, as mentioned before, the recruitment process for students expected to graduate in April 2016 started on March. The shūkatsu system has a particular calendar that is followed by most of the Japanese companies each year that considers the process from March 1st until the hiring of the new graduates in April 1st of the following year.

From March 1st, many companies will start to hold special seminars and job fairs were you can find which kind of companies are recruiting, requirements, and other details of the job while informing yourself about all the possible option available in the market. Is because of this that we would like to invite you all to participate in our next English Career Fair in Kyoto this Friday 6th of March!

This fair will give you the opportunity to get information from companies in Japan completely in English! Do not forget to check the following link and join us in this new recruitment process!

From now onwards we invite you to follow our blog and our social media webpages! We will publish information about the recruitment system, its structure, and some advices that may help you during your process!

Please do send us any question that you may have or if there is a specific topic that you would like to know more about!
