UNIQLO introduces recruitment policy for 2013
Dec '11
On December 1st this year UNIQLO began to adopt a new method of recruiting people in Japan that replaces its previous, more conventional style of recruitment of university graduates.

The change comes just as UNIQLO prepares to recruit from both current university students and recent university graduates for positions starting from 2013. The company also welcomes applications from people of all nationalities, whether they are recent graduates or mid-career professionals.

The new UNIQLO hiring initiative is an important departure from the conventional Japanese recruitment process; it gives individual job-seekers more time to seriously think about their career paths, ensuring a more open application process that will be driven more by the needs of the individuals, rather than solely serving the aims of the company.

UNIQLO seeks people who will help it 'change clothes, change conventional wisdom and change the world'
UNIQLO is committed to break free from the conventional approach to clothing in order to truly benefit people throughout the world. This is an extremely ambitious goal, but UNIQLO is seeking new recruits who are willing to take on the challenge of changing the world for the better.

More specifically, the company plans to hire 500 people in Japan, including university graduates, mid-career professionals, and even dainishinsotsu, the Japanese term used to describe 'second-generation graduates' who have been out of school for up to three years and already have some work experience.

Job opportunities for university students, recent graduates and mid-career professionals of any nationality
UNIQLO believes that the job-hunting process should be enjoyable, so individuals can lay the foundation for their future career development with a sense of hopeful optimism. In addition, the process should be one that focuses on the needs of individuals, rather than those of companies. Based on this thinking, UNIQLO has adopted a new approach that gives applicants more time and freedom in choosing their future career paths.

UNIQLO will make its recruiting process more accessible to all by eliminating time constraints, to ensure maximum freedom for job seekers as they look for the best match. Now, students at any point in their university studies may apply, as well as fresh graduates and mid-career professionals--regardless of their country of origin.

The company hopes this approach will help to provide a wider range of opportunities for students and professionals alike to think about the work they are most suited for, while promoting a more active and flexible approach to the job-hunting process. UNIQLO is determined to promote individual growth as part of its aim to become a company in which all employees have the opportunity to succeed on a global level.
