Showcase your company at the “Welcome to Japan Forum”

TOKYO — On Nov. 16 at Cirq Event Hall in Shinjuku, over 500 English-speaking job seekers will gather for the annual GaijinPot Job Fair. This year, along with a larger venue, there is an added “Welcome to Japan Forum” — complete with company showcase and networking area.

At the GaijinPot Job Fair’s new “Welcome to Japan Forum” companies can connect face-to-face with job seekers and non-job seekers alike via booths, seminars and an open community space to share their products, services and information about living your best life in Japan.

Kieron Cashell, General Manager, GPlusMedia

“Having successfully completed both Tokyo and Osaka job fairs last year — and with this year being our 20th anniversary as a company — our plan is to grow this into an annual community event,” says Kieron Cashell, general manager of GPlusMedia, the publisher of Japan Today and GaijinPot. “With added booths from Japanese schools, real estate companies and travel services, we’ll be able to offer touchpoints to all facets of the resources we offer our users.”

The GaijinPot website has grown substantially since it first launched as an information portal in 1998. It now publishes GaijinPot Study for users interested in learning or improving their Japanese language abilities, GaijinPot Apartments for those looking for a new place to live and GaijinPot Travel for up-do-date “insider” information on exploring Japan. Each of these resources will be on hand at the expo.

Other scheduled presenters will include a wide variety of schools, businesses and other organizations looking to help foreigners adjust to life in Japan. Opportunities for presenters are now open. Due to the expected high demand, there is a limited supply of just 30 company booths available.

The booths are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so Cashell recommends interested companies to register early in order to secure a spot. The deadline for booth reservations is Sept. 27, 2019.

“The GaijinPot Job Fair only happens once a year — and with the addition of our new ‘Welcome to Japan Forum,’ we expect a lot of Japanese companies will sign up for this unique chance to connect with clients and customers IRL,” says Cashell. “So, it’s a good idea register early.”
