Jobboard Finder’s opinion

Summary: Founded in 2006, J-sen is a Japanese job board only for part-time work. The site has impressive traffic: 2.49 million visits per month according to SimilarWeb.  However, we could not find any social media for the page. The site belongs to Livesense Inc., a Japanese company involved in collecting data and analysing it. By understanding users, the company can offer the right services. There is no “About Us” section but there is a company profile, which leads to the Livesense website.

Design: Through the homepage, you can start your job search by clicking on a prefecture, a popular characteristic (of the job), a popular job title, a popular suburb, a train station, a brand name shop. By clicking on one of the icons at the top of the page, you can bring up additional keywords, for the location, national roads, type of employment and other features (like benefits). Some pages lead to an interactive map for the region filter, and you can find different articles concerning the type of job a keyword refers to. This can be general information or a more specific look at different jobs within the field. Job offers appear in large boxes, indicating the type of employment, the salary, the location and the hours. Your filters are the location, type of employment, salary, preferential conditions and any other keywords. You can apply without an account, but you’ll need to include the same type of information.

The job board objective: The goal is to promote positive change in the world, by helping Japanese people find work, which adapts to their lifestyle.

Recruiter observations: The website uses the term ‘adopt’ to recruit. To order a credit (or learn more about it), you must fill out an online form. The form requires both the company name and contact name is Katakana characters and the Latin alphabet. You also need to provide a URL, address (the prefectures) and postcode, which the algorithm has to recognise. There is some free posting.

Jobseeker observations: To create an account, you must provide a phone number, your gender, your age and your current occupation. Once that’s over, you have a page of information concerning your location, the type of work you want, the hours, the characteristics and more to fill out.

The job offers: There are currently 201 381 online. Among the most popular positions, we have maid, tutor, handyman and more.

Reactivity: --

Special features: the app (which was only launched recently); the links to other websites (for housing, other job sites and more); the interactive map; the job sheets; the statistics (on the type of workers, the salary and the gender for different jobs); the Q&As; the testimonials; the advice articles.

Verdict: J-sen is an interesting job board out of Japan. Much like many Asian sites, without language options, it can be difficult to navigate your way around this one, but it is full of useful information, statistics and job offers. We recommend learning the art of patience and discovering how to post on J-sen.
