Candidates

Our Unique Strength

High Interview Rate / Tailored Recommendations to Clients

One of our key strengths is the extreme focus we put on the initial counseling meeting with professionals who are positioned for career growth. We don’t just gather the basic information necessary for a job change, but also collect success stories and achievements that are not included in the resume, but which are important points to appeal to the company when recommending candidates to a company. The caliber of candidates competing with you from other agents may also be strong, but we will introduce you to differentiate yourself from the crowd. We will provide you with career counseling and work to help you find a job that advances your career.

Rare & Confidential Position & High-Earning Jobs

We are industry specialists and have access to exclusive positions that are not available to even major agencies in Japan.  We network at senior level both in Japan and at Global HQ and we have earned the trust of our clients to be engaged on rare and confidential positions. Therefore, we can provide support for a wide range of positions, not only at the staff level but all the way to representative director roles. 

Unparalleled Industry Knowledge

We are specialized in the automotive and mobility industries and as this industry has changed, we have closely tracked the trends working with related Technology and Consulting firms. Our industry knowledge allows us to maintain a large volume of market information, and a network of contacts that connects us to global offices.

Why the Mobility & Automotive Industries?

The automotive industry is at a major turning point – a once-in-a-century change and the market for infrastructure, logistics, mobility services, and other aspects related to the movement of people and goods is becoming more integrated with daily life and society. In the next 10 to 30 years, the means of transportation, including automobiles, will have undergone a complete transformation.

IT x Mobility, such as smart cities and self-driving cars, will accelerate, and more and more companies are focusing on skills rather than industry experience in terms of recruitment, so the range of careers will change depending on experience and skills. We will introduce you to exciting companies that will also make use of your experience and contribute to a better society.
