NEC Corporation and PERSOL CAREER announced the start of a proof-of-concept (PoC) of a new direct recruiting service for companies seeking to hire IT engineers from India, particularly Japanese companies.
The aim of this PoC is to test the direct recruiting service for Japan-based companies considering the employment of foreign IT engineers. Six companies in Japan, including GMO Internet, Inc. and Wired Beans Co., Ltd., are participating in the recruitment activities for IT engineers living in India.
Engineers who participate in the service shall take an IT skill test, where their experience, skills, achievements and resume are confirmed. With this information, recruiters can expect to increase the success of their recruitment activities.
Moreover, the service is based on the concept of self-sovereign identity (SSI), where individual identity holders can fully create and control their credentials, including how their personal data is shared and used.
Roles of both companies conducting this PoC
|Development of a platform and application where resume information of a job seeker can be registered and browsed||Providing information and know-how required to perform the direct recruiting service|
|Provision and operation of direct recruiting service||Selection of recruitment companies|
Points to be verified by this PoC include the following:
- Evaluating the needs of India-based IT engineers seeking to work in Japan
- Simplifying the recruitment process for Japanese recruitment companies
- Ensuring the adequacy of the programming skill check
