YOKOSUKA, Japan (Oct. 29, 2016) －Ship Repair Facility and Japan Regional Maintenance Center (SRF-JRMC) Yokosuka participated in the @type job fair, held at Tokyo Dome Prism Hall to recruit new employees to fill engineering job vacancies.
@type is a Japanese career-change consulting agency and website that shares and disseminates information on engineering and information technology jobs available throughout Japan.
Representatives from SRF-JRMC’s Master Labor Contract manpower division and engineers, Commander, U.S. Forces Japan (USFJ) Human Resources Office, and the Labor Management Organization (LMO) for USFJ Employees came out to seize this employee recruitment opportunity.
Booths were set up where prospective applicants were briefed on the available engineering jobs and the command’s work culture. It was also an opportunity to consult, ask questions and directly interact with Japanese national supervisors and engineers who work at SRF-JRMC.
“We have four positions available at our section,” said Azumi Kanazawa, an engineering technician from the command’s project engineering division. “I spoke with one of the attendees and was asked about our job […]. I think he was very interested in joining SRF-JRMC.”
Seven information sessions were held; they provided a general view of the command’s jobs, including employment status and benefits.
According to @type, there was a good turnout. More than 1,000 job seekers attended the fair.
