A global recruiter and domestic parallel-job supporter, Plus W, Inc. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President: Wakako Sakurai), would like to announce that we have opened the Japan Center at the Pakistan National University of Sciences and Technology on Monday, May 23, 2022. To celebrate the day, an opening ceremony was held linking Pakistan and Japan online. In the presence of ambassadors from both countries, we expressed our willingness to create job opportunities for Pakistani advanced IT engineers by designing a platform and setting up a community.
The Japan Center is opened at last to link Japan and Pakistan
This past March, Plus W signed a memorandum of agreement with Pakistan's National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) who produces many outstanding IT workers. We aim to introduce these excellent IT workers to Japanese corporations to help resolve engineer shortage in Japan. Our first step was to open Japan Center on NUST campus. It is set up in the national Science Technology Park and will begin offering various activities to the NUST students.
The opening ceremony was conducted online between Pakistan and Japan with ambassadors from both countries and many other guests.
Japan has a serious engineer shortage, and industries are holding a high hope in the human resources from Pakistan, the advanced IT country. Japan Center will offer these opportunities to the students enrolled in NUST:
- Career support
- Various events
Workshops have four themes, each with 10 classes, High tech contents such as AI, data science, IoT along with current Japanese market and business traditions. By sharing Japan's appeals, we work to increase the number of students interested in Japan.
These workshops are selected by AOTS in the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as Endowment Seminar Enterprise. Plus W is currently focusing on not only domestic human resources, but also overseas recruiting. Through the workshops, we will train and hire work-ready human resources as well as strengthen our organization.
We will support job hunting for students who wish employment in Japan. Plus W will offer not only Japanese business' hiring information, but also help with resume-writing and interviewing effectively. Japanese language lesson and information on Japanese culture and lifestyle are also offered to build a comprehensive support system.
Along with these efforts, we are planning a hackathon in August and a job fair in October. Plus W will collaborate with Japanese corporations and educational institutions on researches, and link industries and academia. Our hope is to contribute to solving social problems.
