  e-placement : Interractive resume manegement and reference proccess on internet

    With the economic bubble having burst, today we are in a recession called "the
Heisei Recession".

    In spite of the government announcement that the economy is in the road to
recovery the unemployment is record high,
and job promotion has become an important issue.

    This business model, "e-placement", supplies to both individuals and
corporations a service which converts reume for employment processes into
electronic forms and stores them while maintaining both privacy and security.
The service takes advantage of the bi-directional nature of the Internet.

Main Features of "e-placement":

Conversion of resume to electronic form - because it is administered and
made available centrally, there is no need to create a new resume over and
over.

It is possible to search for jobs using input data on specific companies or
job descriptions, and find companies that match the user's requirement to
make job application.

A registrant can select to Opt-in or Opt-out for certain information,
allowing the preservation of anonymity or restricting the companies that
can view their resume data.

An easy-to-use interface using the Internet.

It is possible to register, modify or delete resume data, etc. while
preserving the registrant's identity.

It is possible to search for suitable personnel by keyword search.

      Depending on user options, it is possible to make contact with an
individual either via the e-placement server, or directly.

      By registering interest in certain personnel, it becomes possible to
accept applications from those people.

Running costs are covered by registration fees (maintenance fees) from
companies and applicants and from advertising fees from cooperating
enterprises.
