State-run comprehensive jobs site HelloWork.go.jp has decided to cut out face-to-face interactions with job-seekers by allowing them to complete all the prerequisites online, JapanTimes reported.

HelloWork is run by Japan’s Employment Security Bureau, which falls under the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. It currently lists more than 120,000 regular, temp and contractual jobs, along with job offers for people with disabilities.

Job-seekers previously had to visit one of HelloWork’s 540 offices to apply for a job. Thanks to a revamp, they can now access all necessary information and submit applications online. Job-seekers can also complete a digital profile to receive offers from recruiters.

HelloWork has more than 4.95 million registered members. More than 1.5 million job-seekers have already found a job through the site.

The site saw 5.95 million visitors in April, according to SimilarWeb, despite its reliance on offline procedures. It stacks up well against other career-change sites like Rikunabi Next (8.15m), Doda.jp (8.2m), Employment.En-Japan.com (4.5m) and CareerIndex.jp (1.15m).
