"Hello Work" Offices to Facilitate Job Searches from Home

Politics

Tokyo, May 11 (Jiji Press)--"Hello Work" public job-placement offices across Japan will facilitate job searches from home and also enhance usability for employers, by adopting more information technology.

The changes are aimed at smoother matches between job seekers and companies, said an official of the labor ministry, which operates the offices.

Job seekers can now browse a limited amount of information on job offers on the Internet. To get the full information, they need to visit a Hello Work office.

Starting in January, they will be able to access the full information via personal computers and smartphones from home, after registering their information at an office.

By setting up personal pages on the computer system for the Hello Work offices, they will also be able to save their search conditions and job offers.
