Background Story

Companies all over the world are accelerating the efforts for DX in order to respond to drastic environmental changes; utilize data and digital technologies, and transform their products, services, and business models based on the needs of customers and society. Under such circumstances, Japanese companies have been recruiting more and more in India as they concluded a digital partnership in 2018 with India, home to the excellent IT and digital human resources in the world. However, many Japanese companies have voiced their concerns about recruitment in India. Therefore, Tech Japan conducted a survey on highly skilled human resources in India. In collaboration with JETRO since 2020, Tech Japan has also conducted a survey in Tokyo sponsored by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). In order to accelerate the recruitment of Japanese companies to India, Tech Japan has been organizing the "Working Group on Recruitment from India by Japanese Companies" with the cooperation of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Embassy of India in Tokyo to identify issues, brainstorm solutions and create a platform for discussions. Based on the research and requests from Japanese companies and Indian universities, we have developed the online platform to solve the problems and to accelerate the recruitment process. The online platform enables Japanese companies to efficiently and effectively discover and recruit students from Indian universities through internships.Survey of Indian Highly Skilled Human Resources in Japan

Severe competition with Major Overseas Companies, Unique Recruitment Rules of Universities, Japanese companies face a number of obstacles in their recruitment activities.

Conventional Approach/ If companies do not leverage Internship
Difficult to obtain desired day for the interview
Difficult to evaluate the student within a short period of time
Elevated risk of a mismatch
Less and scattered information to make a decision

The universities have their own unique rules when it comes to recruiting students. Companies are allotted a date and a slot to interview the students based on their brand, past record and student consensus. It is very difficult to get and keep the best dates as companies including the global giants such as GAFA are competing for the same dates. Furthermore, it is difficult to evaluate candidates within a limited time and to make an offer on the same day of the interview. There have been past cases when the company has traveled to India for a recruitment interview, but the interviews did not lead to any desired results.

Implementation Results
VoiceClient Voices
A well established Start-up

While recruiting interns from the IITs, we did not know which of the 23 campuses had the most students with the skills and strengths we were looking for, or where to contact them. Also, we did not have the knowledge or experience to communicate with each university and proceed with the process, and although we were interested in the idea, there were several roadblocks. Now we can recruit interns easily, even if we don't have the know-how in-house. We plan to use this system more extensively in the future as well.
A Graduate from Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai

I had been thinking about doing an internship or working at a Japanese company, but was having trouble finding a system that would help me understand which companies were recruiting. I think this platform will greatly expand my job opportunities in Japan.
An Electronics Conglomerate

We had to fill out dozens of application forms for each university in order to conduct the internship. In addition, the information of students who applied for the program was shared by email, making the management and selection process difficult. With the digital platform, we were able to implement the program in one-tenth the time.
A Graduate from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur

I think this platform is a good opportunity to learn more about the technologies and businesses of Japanese companies. I would be happy if this opportunity can be used to further convey the appeal of Japan to Indian students.
