If September has you dreaming about autumn foliage, the changing of the leaves and personal resolutions (like putting all those hacks and tips for a mobile-first life into practice as you get back in the flow), then now is the ideal time to update your GaijinPot Jobs profile — or create one if you haven’t registered yet.
It’s not just because the fall season leads into one of the peak hiring times in Japan. It’s also because the brand-new interface for users of the GaijinPot Jobs website is responsive and designed to be used on-the-go.
Search for jobs on your morning commute. Fill out your profile, create or edit multiple resumes and apply for positions on the journey home — all on your phone or tablet.
The “Step Up System” encourages applicants to fill out their education and employment histories, credentials, certificates and social media information so potential employers get a more comprehensive view of who they are.
If you haven’t included enough information on your profile, then a series of useful tips will let you know that you have more work to do to fill out your resume. Fill out these details until you receive the “Essentials” badge and you can start applying.
You will then be prompted to upgrade your profile with other relevant details to get other badges in a step-up manner. Add badges for “Employer friendly,” “Details” and “Social” so you can be sure that your resume is attractive to prospective recruiters, detailed enough to interest hiring managers and has enough online information to highlight your social media and web-savvy skills.
If you’re already a user, simply visit GaijinPot Jobs to log in, update your resume and show potential new employers the new, improved you. Capitalize on that autumn energy change after a revitalizing summer. If this is your first time — registering is fast and easy. Create your CV in under five minutes and start looking for your next job immediately!
