However, employers need to reach the right type of candidate and many have begun using the GaijinPot Resume Bank to do so.

The Resume Bank takes the wait out of the equation by allowing employers to search over 100,000 resumes by criteria that matter most to them: education, language ability, related work experience, nationality, gender, age and location. Finally, finding the perfect candidate has gotten a whole lot easier!

Employer Comment: I prefer recruiting through the resume bank because of the time saved. The RB lets me tag and contact all the job-seekers I’d like to hire, making the interview phase so much smoother. (H. Kondo, Advertising Industry)

Job-Seeker Comment: I love getting direct emails from companies before applying. Most jobs on GaijinPot are so popular that I sometimes get discouraged after I submit a resume and right after notified that 100 other people have applied for the same job - depressing. The companies that find my resume keep my spirits up! (Z. Lott, America)
