[Here is the press release from "Work in Kyushu."]

Work in Kyushu
* "Work in Kyushu" is a website dedicated to matching Kyushu businesses with international students. It officially opened on 27th January 2017.
- This is the site for businesses: http://blog.kghrpc.org/company/
- This is the site for international students: http://blog.kghrpc.org/candidate/

* Working in cooperation with the Kyushu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Kyushu Economic Federation, and seven Kyushu prefectures (Fukuoka Prefecture, Saga Prefecture, Nagasaki Prefecture, Kumamoto Prefecture, Oita Prefecture, Miyazaki Prefecture and Kagoshima Prefecture), "Work in Kyushu" was developed with the aim of utilizing and establishing a talented global workforce in Kyushu.

* There are approximately 23,000 international students in Kyushu, with a large proportion coming from Asian countries, such as China, Vietnam and Nepal. This figure accounts for about 11% of the entire country. At the same time, the amount of international students who get jobs in Kyushu is noticeably less, making up only around 5% of the nationwide total. One of the major reasons for this is thought to be that Kyushu's companies and international students are not receiving enough information about who is looking for work and what work is out there.

* On the site there is recruitment information, both with regards to job opportunities and potential employees. And that's not all; international students will also be able to record and post a short "self intro videos" where you call talk about your skill-set, meaning that you can actually tell potential employers about yourself, which gives you the chance to express your qualities more than you can in text. And on the company's side, they can check the linguistic ability of candidates beforehand, simply by watching the uploaded videos. There is also a video chat function on the site, which means that distance is not an issue as interviews can be conducted online; helping to make a highly efficient recruitment process.

In addition to providing both insight into the world of job-hunting for international students in Japan, as well as information about the visa applications that are required for employment at a company, they will also post updates that all users will be able to reference, including messages of support from students who are already active in the workplace and success stories from the side of businesses who have dipped into the pool of talented international individuals.

* It's free to register and use. They are waiting to hear from businesses and international students alike, so check it out!
