Used by many new graduates seeking for jobs who consider working environments and conditions as important factors
Career Connection (http://careerconnection.jp/) consists of three services: “company information that includes company reviews/salaries”, “career development support service” and “Career Connection News.” Approximately 790,000 people have registered with the site. The general working population has been the main user but it has been a popular website that lists company reviews, and 60,000 students register to the site annually. 75% of the users are students from highly ranked schools such as national and public universities, Waseda, Keio, MARCH schools, etc.
As the public starts to acknowledge the word “Black Company”, the number of students who consider working environments and conditions as important factors are increasing. It is difficult for the students to grasp the actual condition by just attending an orientation sponsored by the company. Students are starting to register for Career Connection which was mainly intended for workers wanting to switch careers, to see what the company is really like.
Currently, there is a function where students can register for multiple recruitment support sites (recruitment service for new graduates) within “Career Connection”. This function was under a trial stage, but in order to help students understand the reality of the company and to further support their job search activities, we have decided to release the function in full scale.
“Career Connection” has been a “Platform for the working population” mainly supporting career changing activities but our plan is to expand our business to the new graduates’ job search activities. The company’s goal is to support all areas of job search activity. In addition to improve the registering function above, we look forward to increase the number of partnerships as well.
