For a long time in Japan, most job searches were through agents. However, that trend is changing recently.As expected, Japanese people are beginning to learn to create business relationships with SNS due to the recent shortage of high-quality jobs.
Although it is a world-famous LinkedIn, the number of registered people in Japan is 2 million, which is still small in the world (2020).
However, when I come here, I hear that LinkedIn is becoming more and more popular in Japan. Many of my friends have also started LinkedIn. Just by registering, there are times when we talk about work, and its usefulness has begun to be recognized.
Japanese business SNS?
Also, there are many such business-type SNSs in the Japanese version. The most famous one is "Wantedly".
You can also register as a foreigner. There are many start-up companies, but it may make connections and talk about work.
If you can speak a little Japanese, why not register?
