Job Posting

  • Ease of use – Employers can post jobs online by filling out the simple web form; clone, edit, delete or deactivate posted jobs.
  • Attractive Job Descriptions – Plain text is boring. We use Rich Text allowing you to put job description information in Bold, italics, underline, bullet points, hyperlinks, and much more.
  • Bring the job to life – Add photos and videos to make a very attractive job posting. If you do not have a company video, add a video of the city to give the job seeker and idea of the location.
  • Your job will show on the interactive map allowing job seekers to find positions near where they live or want to live. Set for the job location as this may be different than the company address.
  • Refreshed to top – Instead of your job advertisement losing momentum as the days go by, the Featured jobs are periodically refreshed to the top of the list getting you more exposure.
  • Screening questionnaires – Use our customized filters to effectively block those that do not fit your requirements.
  • Built for mobile – We make sure your job posting looks great regardless of device the job seekers uses.

Company Profile Page

  • You can let job seekers know more about the company, benefits, and why the company is an employer of choice.
  • Same as the job postings, use Rich Text and video to show of your company.
  • Company location shown on the interactive map.
  • Employer reviews are an invaluable resource for job-seekers. You have the choice to allow employees or interviewees to share their experiences on your company profile page. Moderated to ensure that only helpful comments are allowed. (Employers have the option to disable).

Resume Data bank: Effective Resume Search

  • For employers with this option, you are able to search resumes by different criteria including keywords and location.
  • It’s also possible to save resumes and resume searches; create/manage resume alerts and receive latest resumes by email.
  • Resumes can be downloaded in PDF file for later review.
  • Employers can add personal notes for saved resumes.

Managing Applications Made Easy

Employers are provided with all necessary tools to view, accept or reject applications from job seekers. Various filters allow you to easily sort and rank applications making your hiring process streamlined saving you time. General statics are tracked giving you feedback on how each job is doing.

  • Choose between using our online application process with email notifications or redirect job seekers to a certain URL (e.g. hiring landing page on your site).
  • Resume Archive – Different from other job sites, we do not close down access to your account and resumes soon after your posting expires blocking you from your applications.

Video Interviews: Save face-to-face interviews for only your most qualified candidates

Managing Applications Made Easy

When you’re blocking out an hour for each and every screening interview, the hiring process becomes extremely time-consuming. This is especially true when many of these applicants don’t live in the same time zone or don’t have the qualifications necessary to be a good fit. Use the JobsinJapan.com video interviewing system to quickly sort who deserves an in-person interview.

The video interview system lets employers request job applicants to answer a number of set interview questions in a relatively controlled way with the video attached to the resume for the hiring manager’s review.

It has never been faster to assess a job seeker’s communication skills, body language, and how they present their ideas. Even assessing how one dresses for the video interview tells a lot about one’s personality.

No juggling schedules, save time, collaborate with your team members and make a faster and better hire.

How much does this service cost?

Nothing! It is included with all packages.

Our AI assesses the English pronunciation and fluency!

The video interviews are also a spoken English fluency test.

JobsinJapan.com’s video interview system evaluates spoken English language and returns Grammar, Pronunciation, Vocabulary, and Coherence scores aligned with standard rubrics such as CEFR, IELTS, TESOL, etc. This gives employers a report, as accurate as certified human testers, an instant insight into the applicant’s spoken fluency. This greatly speeds up the evaluation process allowing employers to judge on ability and not be swayed by name or nationality bias. (The scores are highly reliable and can accurately grade within ±0.54 IELTS points of a human grader.)

One’s English level is no longer a “self assessment” where some applicants may exaggerate one’s ability in order to get a job.  Watch and listen to the video interview along with our assessment .

The AI assessed English language score listed with the video is not some EFL/ESL rating. The evaluation rates the ability of highly fluent English speakers.  Even native English speakers will not get a perfect score.

(Japanese language assessment is being developed now. We are excited to launch that feature in due course.)

How We Drive Traffic to Your Job Posting

Your Job Prominently Displayed on “Google for Jobs”

Google for Jobs is a job search platform that compiles job ads postings from registered job boards and career websites recommending relevant jobs to people in Google’s search page results.

Jobs listed on JobsinJapan.com are prominently listed in their job window showing jobs by location, industry type, employer, date posted, salary, and more

The Google for Jobs platform is candidate-centric and recommends what Google believes is the most suitable position without regard to the job board, cost of the job ad, etc.  With Google estimating 73 percent of job seekers starting their job search with a Google search, there is little to no merit in using expensive job platforms when listing on our platform gives you the same, or better, exposure with Google for Jobs.


Social Media

JobsinJapan.com has a strong and active presence on many social networking sites, including Instagram and Facebook. Promoting your jobs throughout our network is absolutely free, as this helps you to get more candidates and it helps our fans to find the best job for them.

Detailed description here

The Featured job posting is listed on the home page, has a larger more attractive preview block including key visual and extended explanation attracting more attention than the Standard job listings.

More importantly, the Premium job listing is “refreshed” weekly to the top of the listing which greatly increases the number of views and response offering a constant flow of applications throughout the month. While each job is different, you can expect double the number of applications with the Featured listing allowing you to make a better hiring decision.

While we are confident you will find our site easy to use, we are happy to help. Please do not hesitate to contact us and we can walk you through using the site and functionality.

If you still feel uncomfortable, you can send us the job description to us by email for us to upload on your behalf. We also check the content of every job posting before making it live on the site.

Everyone loves FREE right? When we started JobsinJapan.com in 1999, we offered free postings and had a very large number of jobs on the site while monetizing banner and featured jobs. While this sound great, it caused a lot of problems.

Free listing sites are full of scams and less-than-reputable jobs which causes distrust with job seekers. Being free, there were many garbage listings.

Having paid listings allows us to improve the site and advertise your listings properly giving your job advertisement a better response and features to manage your applications efficiently.

Jobs are posted online for a period of 30 days. The time starts from when the job is posted online and does not correlate with the job posting purchase date.

For those job seekers that have applied to your job, you can request for them to answer a number of set interview questions using our video interview system which are then stored for your review.

In your applications folder, there is a video invite/view icon just above the job seeker’s resume download button. That’s it. No extra fiddling around with technical stuff. Just click the video invite button to ask for a video interview for your next hire.

More information on this is found in the Employer User Guide.

There is no additional charge no matter how many people you hire from your job listing. JobsinJapan.com charges per job description published so the price is the same if you hire one person or one hundred from your job posting (package options here)

We accept payment by Bank Transfer, Credit Card (Visa or MasterCard) or PayPal. As payment is to be made in advance of your job posting be published online, there is a slight time delay for those using the bank transfer option to allow for payment confirmation.

The employer is responsible for creating their own job description text. Advice on how to write an effective job description can be found here (link).

Before job postings are approved online, we check to see if they meet our rules and regulations. At this time, we also check the job description text for spelling and grammar mistakes which we will fix.

We do not restrict how many words or characters for your job description, so you can write a proper explanation on why your job is a good one. Be sure to add photos and/or video to really highlight the position. You can find tips here.

Our listing prices are all inclusive. We do not charge extra for items such as being promoted in our newsletter, being promoted on our social media network, full company profile page, etc.
