Tokyo, July 9, 2018 – Rakuten Min-Shu, the employment information community site operated by Rakuten, Inc., today announced the launch of “Min-Shu Career Agent,” a recruitment service aimed at new graduates in search of work. The service, launched today, is operated by Rakuten Career Agent, Inc., a subsidiary of Rakuten.
Min-Shu Career Agent is a recruitment service that matches companies with new graduates. Students who register on the service can receive a free consultation with a professional advisor and, based on the results of the consultation, have the opportunity to be introduced to an ideally-matched employer. Plans are also underway to make it possible for students to reserve a consultation with an adviser via the LINE messaging app.
For companies, this service enables them to focus on approaching students who meet their hiring criteria and, as a fee is incurred only at the point where the student agrees to a job offer, it can also serve to improve the efficiency of the recruitment process.
Since its launch in 1996, Min-Shu has provided a platform for students to take the initiative with their own careers. Through Min-Shu Career Agent, Rakuten Min-Shu aims to provide a service focused on the needs of students, made possible by its years of experience in the recruitment industry.
Going forward, Rakuten Min-Shu will provide insightful information and opportunities related to recruitment to help companies and students find their ideal match.
