About the Self-introduction Video

Selfy
  • I'm still not confident about my Japanese, but I want to get a part time job and make money!
  • Writing a resume is difficult! I want an easier way to appeal to employers!

The Self-introduction Video was created especially for people like you who want to appeal directly to employers. Even if you can't write well in Japanese, speaking skills can translate to being hired.
