I have founded my own recruitment company based on the questions and discomfort I felt during my own job search: 'What is the added value and significance of a recruitment agent?' I am actively involved in creating the 'ideal recruitment company' based on this. By handling a wide range of job opportunities regardless of industry or occupation, we take pride in providing 'unbiased' career support. We have also received numerous awards in the field of recruitment.
