What is a Recruitment Agency?

A recruitment agency (called tenshoku agent in Japanese) helps to successfully connect foreign nationals living in Japan who are looking to change jobs with Japanese companies who want to hire foreign nationals.
As a career advisor with extensive know-how will support you, there's a higher chance of successfully finding a job rather than searching on your own. And as companies who are struggling to find the right personnel can make specific requests, successful placements are that much more likely.

As WeXpats receives payment from the hiring companies after a successful placement, users can utilize our services completely for free.

Merits of Using a Recruitment Agency

You will be assigned a full-time career advisor

When people consider changing jobs, most take a look at job sites. They're suitable for getting lots of information in one place and browsing at your own pace. The biggest merit of using recruitment agencies is that you have a consultant assigned to you.

At WeXpats Agent, we call our consultants Career Advisors. Their goal is to successfully find you a new job. To do so, they'll first set up a consultation to know your strengths. There's surprisingly few people who truly understand their own strengths and characteristics. The career advisor will draw out your full potential and find you the best suited job, thus preventing future cases of mismatch and dissatisfaction after being hired.

We will take care of the tedious paperwork

When applying for jobs on a job site, you must schedule the interview and negotiate your desired job conditions yourself. However, if you use a recruitment agency, the career advisor will do everything for you.

If you are working while also job hunting, it can be difficult to find time to schedule interviews and negotiate your desired conditions, so it's convenient to have the recruitment agency do the tedious paperwork for you. As stated earlier, the career advisors have inside knowledge of Japanese companies, so a huge merit is being able to know how to prepare for the interview and what the hiring company is looking for.

Another big merit is that career advisors can provide support from a professional standpoint, such as advice about how to write your Japanese CV which is often difficult for foreign nationals, preparation for interviews, etc.
