Japanese human resource firm Human Resocia Inc. has signed agreements with three Korean universities and one educational institution to provide their students with language training and help them pursue careers as IT engineers in Japan.
The agreements were signed with DaeJin University SunMoon University, Kongju National University, and JSL Human Resource Development Institute. Resocia will provide Japanese language expertise, curriculum development support, and career guidance after graduation.
The group hopes to employ 100 Korean IT engineers annually as a result of the broad-based partnership. It also plans to hire 100 IT engineers from Nepal every year, after signing agreements with Tribhuvan University, Nami College and Nepal Engineering College last month.
The company has signed another agreement with the Bucharest University of Economic Studies in Romania. This one aims at employing 1,000 graduates in different fields. The university has since set up a Japanese culture center on campus.
Founded in 1988, Osaka-based Human Resocia operates a temporary jobs site at Haken.Resocia.jp, a career-change site at Career.Resocia.jp, a regular employment site for global IT talent at Git.Resocia.jp and a job site for c-suites at Remasters.Resocia.jp.
The group also owns DaiJob Global Recruiting Co. Ltd. — the operator of the foreign-funded career-change site DaiJob.com in Japan, China, North America, and Europe. It runs a site for companies looking for staff for global expansion plans at WorkingAbroad.DaiJob and a job listing platform with industry insights at WorkInJapan.
Many Japanese recruitment firms have begun looking for external sources to meet the country’s growing labor shortage needs. Grooves.com was given government approval to scout job-seekers from East Asia in October. The company operates multiple job sites. Adecco.co.jp runs a six-month career development support program for university students in Taiwan.
