Amazing and trustworthy…. are the words I use when people asked how “Specialized Group”is like.
[...] Not only Cho Haruka san have connected people and dots but also you have continued to thinking of my future career and what I want to realize in my career.
I had really good experence with Yoshika Kudo san, who is professional and patient, she is not only find me a suitable role with better career develop, also fight for my best interest.
I was very pleased with the support that I recieved from Chris. He was professional and personable as he listened to my career ambitions in the sustainability sphere and used his client expertise to find me a position with a good fit. I was satisfied with his follow-up through the recruitment process and recommend him to others seeking a career in sustainability, whether that be in ESG consulting, corporate decarbonization, or otherwise.
I appreciate Mr. Kevin Coupland for all of my hiring process. He is very supportive, friendly and considerate.
He found me a wonderful job opportunity which I couldn't find by myself.
Everytime before and after the interview, he was courteous in his consultation with me.
I am very happy to have found such a wonderful professional like Kevin san. If I ever change jobs again in the future, I would like to consult with him and Specialized Group.
I had the privilege to work with Rego Fareyhan. He was meticulous in explaining the role to me. He was also prompt in checking with the company I was applying for my enquiries and showed lots of initiative in following up with me before and after each interview. I didn’t have to guess my status. I felt he was genuinely interested in my career aspirations, and I liked his sincerity and warmth throughout the application process.
Thanks to my consultant, Risa Shiratori. She offered me very suitable position and helped me prepare the interview. It was a great experience working with her.
I had a wonderful experience with Specialized Group, as they thoroughly took the time to connect me to my ideal match. My consultant, Conor Evans, was extremely helpful and always checked in with me throughout my job search. I am very grateful to have worked with Conor and to have had his continued support through the entire process. Thank you so much!
I have worked with several recruitment agents in the past, and Fiona is by far the most supportive, understanding, and motivating consultant. Throughout the process, I felt respected as a person, rather than just another candidate to fill a vacancy. She listened to me, offered her thoughts in a not pushy way, and patiently waited when I needed some time, not to mention her excellent ability to manage all the communications and negotiations in a pleasant and timely manner.
Thanks to Pauline Ma advices through all the hiring process I was able to successfully obtain an offer with her client. She was extremely helpful and always ready to answer my question to be the best prepared for the interviews. I recommend anyone looking for an IT related position to use her services. She is an expert.
I am delighted with my recruiter, Nana Akagawa, who connected well with my future company. I had many complex requests, including financial things. She took care of them on time. There are no complaints. All perfect.
Yoshika Kudo san was my recruiter and she was very professional, friendly and supportive. Very good experience overall.
I've received tremendous supports from my consultant Alex Curl, who had been very professional and supportive throughout the long journey of getting a great offer. He helped a lot in terms of interview preparation as well as always keeping me up to date regarding the selection status. I'm excited to start my new career, with big thanks to Alex!
Rego F. Djamalus gave me an excellent service. I'm glad that he reached out and introduced me to a great company. He is very supportive, friendly, and professional with his service. He gave me pieces of helpful advice for the interview and tried to answer all of my questions.
I've had a very good experience with recruitment process here! The process was very down-to-earth and efficient. I was never forced to apply somewhere or talk on the phone for a job unfit for me just so the recruiter can get better KPIs.
In the end, I landed a job recommended to me by Rego. The communication with the recruiter was very smooth and the feedback I got from him was helpful. The company liking me helped a lot, but I got and accepted an offer in just 18 days after I got the job description. I'm not sure if I will be ever able to break this record in the future :)
I also enjoyed talking to Steve, he was very up to the point and friendly.
I luckily met my best partner Ms. Asuna Kaneko has a warm-hearted great headhunter in my life. She always listen to my heart and support well to achieve my final goal. I appreciate that she knocked and opened the door for my brilliant future. Thank you!
Highly appreciate all the support from Alex! He knows his clients well and gives you good advise for the interviews. Very good follow up through out the entire process and definitely a recruiter you can trust. Thank you so much!
Truly grateful to Margot from Specialized Group for introducing me to the new amazing opportunity and helping me out every step of the way from interview prep to my Day 1 at the new job. Whenever I had questions or doubts and reached out to her she always responded instantly! I couldn't be more grateful for the support she has given me. It was a pleasure talking to her and when I felt nervous about the interviews she helped me stay calm and confident. Lastly, I believe her negotiation and communication skills played a part in the outstanding offer I've gotten and wasn't expecting. You can 100% rely on her and I definitely recommend her!
My agent, Pauline, is very professional and gave me every information I need throughout my career change. Finally I got an offer with her support. Really appreciated her efforts and highly recommend Specialized Groups.
Rego contacted me regarding regarding a position that matched my profile. From the outset Rego showed that he considered each position and each candidate carefully. We had a good chat where he not only seemed to take a genuine interest in me, but that he knew the position and company to some degree. This is not the norm unfortunately for recruitment agencies who typically try to cover as wide a range of companies and candidates as possible. From then on Rego and I were in constant communication, right up to and after I got the job. Overall a pleasure to work with and a very welcome change from my experience with recruiters up till then.
Thanks so much to my consultant, Alex.
He supported me all the way through the process, although we had to face some difficulties, with his professional support and some positive advice, I was able to get a great offer. I would recommend him if you will be looking for a new job. He understands clearly about clients and always gives precise answers. Thank you very much :)
Miss. Akagawa handled my case! I was most happy by the fact that she didn't just encourage me to change jobs, but actually listened to my needs and showed me the best approach. I was also glad that she helped me prepare for the recruitment interview for a long time, and was always there for my consultations. I felt so confident with her that if I change jobs again someday, I would like to ask for Miss. Akagawa again.
(Translated from Japanese)
Alex supported me throughout my job interviews. He is very supportive and without his advice and pre-interview information, I could not have gotten the job from one of the top firms in the industry. Thank you so much for your quick response and kind advices!
Thanks to Haruka Cho san, I found a great opportunity. She gave me advice on my future career plans and shared candidly with me about the company management and the atmosphere of the company. I trusted her as I felt she was sincere and constantly updated me immediately with information.
Thank you very much for everything, Miss. Kudo.
You introduced me to a really awesome job and supported me all the way until I was able to successfully make the switch.
I was glad to have Mr. Kafung Chan helped me out through the entire hiring process. It was the first time I had switched jobs with a help of a recruiter but the transition went smoothly thanks to him. I would also like to thank Haruka Cho san, who initially I approached me, as she had done a great job hearing what kind of role/corporate culture I was looking for and handing me over to Kafung swiftly.
I was using a few other agencies but Specialized Groups KK has more positions for foreign start up & small medium size companies compare to other big recruiting agency.
I communicate with Alex Curl on a position that I am intreated. Alex is a friendly person, and has enthusiasm on what he is doing. He is very fast on follow up on both candidate & client side as well as help to negotiate to meet the salary expectation.
I would recommend my friends and colleague to use Specialized Group for job hunting.
Friendly, professional and receptive, he made every single steps of the process very smooth
I am very satisfied to work with Conor Evans from Specialized Group. He provided professional suggestions and I was very impressed with the advice for the interviews and the prompt feedback, so that I was well prepared. He is very kind, supportive and a friendly person to work with. It was my pleasure to work with him.
Thanks to the support from your company agent, Yuki Akiyama, I was able to get the job at the company I wanted. I received thorough support with pre-interview input and schedule adjustments. As I felt confident with her handling my job change, I recommended her to several friends, and now there are a lot of them also switched to their dream jobs thanks to Akiyama's support.
Thank you very much for the advice and constant support.
I've dealt with many agents and this time I was left with a very thorough, professional impression.
・Great interviewing skills to find out my aspirations.
・Good coordination skills based on comprehension of both sides needs
・Through knowledge of the industry
・Close and detailed follow-up
On top of that, we were able to improve the annual income above the range originally offered by the company.
I’ll come to you next time!
They really understand my next career goal and introduce me great companies. My agent Rego is always supportive and helpful, and can’t thank him enough.
Thanks to Yuki Akiyama, I was able to pick my next job with peace of mind. I have changed jobs through an agent about three times in the past, but I have never met such a wonderful person.
The information before the interview and the follow-up was excellent. She flexibly handled the schedule with the employer side and her detailed interview and care really saved me.
Thank you very much, Miss Akiyama
This time, thanks to the speedy and fine handling of my case by your agent, Yuki Akiyama, I was hired by the company I was interested in. Despite the schedule straddled New Year holidays, I was provided with her most accurate advice and devoted support. I can’t thank her enough.
She’s familiar with the industry, so I felt confident that she was handling my case. I think she is one of the few agents that can empathize and put herself on the side of the worker changing jobs. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Thank you
During my job transition, I was very grateful to the Specialized Group. In particular, Yuki Akiyama, who was in charge of introducing me to a position that suits me, advised me for the interviews, quickly handling matters with the employer’s HR department and supporting me with a lot of other things. In particular, i think it’s thanks to the speed of her response and her frequent communication that I was able to get the job. Thanks a lot.
They clearly understand what companies and candidates want and need. They really help connect the two.
Rather than introducing a number of unsuitable jobs, Specialized Group introduced me to jobs specifically based on my skills and experiences. Also, I was able to have enough information prior to the interviews, so that I was well prepared and confident.
The support I received from Specialized Group went beyond what an average recruiter does, they were phenomenal. They listen to what you want and understands career paths. I wouldn’t have gotten the position without Specialized Group's endless support. Cheers to Specialized Group.
Specialized Group has a wide range of job opportunities for bilingual professionals. My consultant believed I was a good match for a position, he talked me through the process and arranged the interview for me. I was very impressed with the prompt feedback and advice. I have worked with many agents in the past and he is one of the best.
Luckily for me, the Talent Acquisition Specialist who worked with me was very understanding and patient. Daniel kept an eye out for new opportunities, even if one did not go as we both expected. He persisted for a couple of months until he found me the job. I am very grateful to Daniel and his service. Specialized Group might not be a big recruiting company, but I think because of that, the service I received felt more personal and genuine.
Mr. Chris Agomuo was very sincere and always helpful. I have never met such a nice and friendly recruiter such as Chris. He supported me and explained the situation to the client when I mistakenly answered a question regarding consumption tax in a final interview.
Specialized Group has been very accommodating in assisting me with my job search. My consultant, Chris, consistently provided me with updates on jobs and always checked in with me before and after interviews. He gave me helpful insights and has been very supportive.
I am very satisfied with the services provided, especially with Daniel who spent time understanding my needs and tailoring the job recommendations to my personal preferences and strengths. He also responded quickly to any questions and was very professional in managing the entire process.
The Recruitment Agents are really helpful, they went the extra mile to find a job that fits my requirements. Chris is friendly and very approachable.
A lot of attractive positions were available through Specialized Group. My consultant, Daniel Biggs, was very attentive.
Joe Oller, of Specialized Group, supported me through my first job change. He totally understood my situation and the company's needs and took the best approach for success. In just one month, the match between myself and the employer was complete! Great job Joe, many thanks!
Brandon has shown great professionalism and went above and beyond to assist in the process. Highly recommended and very informative experience, especially from the perspective of an ex-pat not speaking Japanese yet.
Daniel Biggs was very responsive throughout the entire process. He had thoughtful advice and suggestions because he gave my specific situation a lot of thought.
I had the pleasure of working with Chris Agomuo for my job search. He reached out promptly after I submitted my application to Specialized Group for an advertised position and patiently walked me through the process of interviews and tests. The debriefing sessions following interviews were always helpful to discuss what I could improve. Having Chris’ support throughout this draining process gave me all the tools and confidence I needed to do my best.
Thank you very much. I was very grateful for the detailed explanation of my role, and in the negotiationsfor my annual income.
Specialized Group’s recruitment consultant follow-up was quick and always polite. If you believe in yourself and work towards your career goals, you will find the perfect place. Please do your best.
I’ve got a chance working with Kelly, she supported me along my onboarding process. Thanks so much.
Andrea was a very helpful recruiter in the interview process with insightful hints for my preparation. She also helps accommodate a lot of personalized requests from my side with the company I was interviewing. She played a key role in my success to win the offer.
My assigned recruiter was Tu Minh Pham. He got me the job at a company that satisfies all my criteria: foreigner-friendly, open communication, remote work, startup, good product, good salary. Tu was keeping a constant communication line with me before and after each interview phase to make sure I was doing well. He gave me advices on what to prepare and what to expect. This is my first time I use a recruiter for my job hunting and I am very satisfied with Tu and Specialized Group in general.
Alex Curl from Specialized Group helped me land my dream job. I don't think I would have had the courage to apply for the position if it wasn't for Alex's encouragement. He supported me through every interview process, making sure I had all the information I needed to prepare and giving me pointers as well when needed. He also made sure that I was being updated on the next steps and their feedback throughout the very long interview process and that allowed me to sit back and relax, giving me space to really focus during my interviews. So thank you!
Specialized did a great job in helping me transition to Japan, especially helped by Kafung Chan. Highly recommended for those in the real estate industry.
As this was my first time to work for a foreign company, I was worried at first during the selection process and at the time of the offer, due to the differences from Japanese companies.
Mr. Kafung Chan supported me, and I am very grateful for the appropriate advice and communication with the client, which made the process go smoothly. We also had an irregular situation where the person in charge was changed in the middle of the project, but he handled it very smoothly and we were very satisfied overall.
Mr. Kafung introduced me to a good job opportunity, and I was able to change jobs successfully.
Mr. Kafung is well versed in the industry and the client's situation.
I am very satisfied with the detailed support.
Kafung helped me landed the best job I can get at that moment. He was very professional in listening to candidates’ needs as well as analyzing their strengths and weaknesses through which he manages to find the most suitable job for candidates.
Daniel-san is a good headhunter and his performance is so good for me. Also his behavior is so polite and his support and help is so kind.
I think he is the best employee , and his contribution to Specializes Group KK is always good.
Thank you for everything Daniel-san.
It is great knowing you in this Hyatt Seragaki issue.
This year vacation, please kindly visit our property.
Again thank you Daniel-san.
I believe you will have many happy days ahead.
My experience with Steve Gobinet, a recruiter from Specialized Group, was outstanding. Steve took the time to understand my professional experience and skill sets as well as my aspirations professionally and technically. He is a very friendly, professional, and creative thinker who made me think "out-of-the-box" about job opportunities in business sectors I had not previously considered. Once the interview process started, I appreciated e-mails and calls from Steve that kept me up-to-date on the status of my application and tips on how to look my best to prospective employers. I would be happy to recommend Steve to my friends who are looking for a career change.
My agent, Steve Gobinet, was very responsive and positive throughout the entire process. He had a lot of helpful advice, and I am delighted to make the correct choice with his support.
Pauline from Specialized Group has given me great support through the whole recruitment process. She is always patient and always responsive. Really appreciate his help.
I'm very thankful to Specialized Group K.K. for showing the best opportunities to work with top organizations. Thanks to Yoshika Kudo-san for understanding all my requirements, helped at every level of the interview by giving tips for the interview process, which helped me in passing interviews to get my dream job smoothly.
Mr. Chris Agomuo reached out to me through LinkedIn and helped me find a new career path that I had never thought of. He was very encouraging and supportive, and I am very much grateful for that.
Had a great experience with Alex Curl, who was very professional, helpful, friendly, and made some great suggestions throughout my time working with him.
I was able to land a new job very quickly thanks to Alex's support, and I think he was very good at caring for candidates. He has excellent skills in taking care of candidates' mentality as they usually feel uncertain about job changes. I believe you will do great in your recruiting career.
Very professional, and highly responsive; provided timely support & regular follow-up; very reliable
I am very grateful for all the support from the Specialized team, especially Mr. Motoi Tanaka who helped me during the whole selection process, giving me tips and explaining in detail about the open position. I believe that we will continue to work together in another scope, and it will be a pleasure to continue that connection.
I tried working unsuccessfully with quite a few agencies until Chris from Specialized Group reached out. I am amazed by the quality of service he provided. He helped me land a dream job at a great company. Thanks you, Chris.
My consultant, Kelly Yu, is super helpful and supportive during the whole process. She always provides with very detailed information and advice prior to each interview. I would not have be able to make this far without her continuous supports.
Thanks to my consultant Kelly Yu, I was able to get the offers that exceeded my expectations despite that I was in a difficult situation. She is very supportive, reliable and prompt because she respects my opinion, encourage me when I wasn't confident.
Chris from Specialized Group helped me tremendously in landing a great job opportunity. During the 5 months of us working together, Chris has been very generous and resourceful about sharing the details of the positions I applied for. He is also supportive and analytical, always followed up after each step promptly, shared his insights and tried to align with my objectives or concerns. I was fortunate to work with Chris at the beginning of my professional career and would recommend him to any job seekers out there.
Thank consultant Pauline Ma from Specialized Group K.K. for helping me to found the ideal job. I was fortunate to meet and work with Pauline. She not only recommended the opportunity but also followed up the each process through the interview. I would like to recommend her to every job seeker.
Kelly Yu as my recruiter was fantastic! She always responded almost instantly and gave me great advice. Even though I thought I could never get that kind of position I received incredible support that helped me through the interviews. Thanks to Kelly I finally get to take the next step in my career.
I would like to thank Ms. Asuna Kaneko in Specialized Group K.K. for representing me this time. She has been very engaging and dependable throughout the process, and thanks to her full support, I've got an offer for my ideal role within a month. I have known Specialized Group for several years and not only Kaneko-san but also other consultants I know are all dedicated and professional, so I would definitely recommend this agency for those who look for a new opportunity.
Specialized Group is different compared to other recruiting agencies in the market. They focus on building the relationship with the candidates and helping them in a professional and supportive way. Daniel has helped me search for a job during COVID, which is a challenging time in the market. He introduced many different companies that fit the type of jobs I was looking for, followed up, guided, and supported me during the whole process. I am very grateful that Daniel had reached out to me when I had a hard time looking for jobs. If you are looking for a job in Japan, I highly recommend using Specialized Group.
I’m happy to meet Kelly Yu san, and you change my life. You introduced me lots of nice companies, some of them invited me to the interviews. You tried to understand me and my life by talking to me a lot. Especially, you’re also mom, so you thought my life as mom. I don’t have TOEIC score. But maybe I talked to you in English, and the company knew it. The companies never doubted my English skill. You gave me advice, helped my interviews and negotiation at the right moment. I’ve never worried about my next schedule. I met the best consultant. When my friend need help to find a new job, I’ll recommend you to him/her.
Kafung from Specialized group has given me great support through the whole recruitment process. He is always patient and always responsive. Really appreciate his help.
You can find professional headhunters specialized in each industry. I personally recommend Steve Gobinet who is dedicative and never give up until you find the right job.
Mr. Freddy Beadon was in charge of me. He was always quick to respond and explained everything that was unclear to me in a way that I could understand. It was very helpful. I received a job offer from the company of my choice, and I am looking forward to working there. Thank you very much.
Chris is very diligent & supportive professional. He goes the extra mile to assist clients. I was very satisfied with the services he provided to me.
Pauline from Specialized Group reached out to me when I was just starting looking for some opportunities in Japan from Taiwan - it was not so easy to find one due to COVID19, and I am very appreciative that she provides such a great opportunity for me. She is very friendly, easy to talk to, and enthusiastic to help. She provided professional suggestions for not only the interview but also the salary negotiation after I received the offer. It was my pleasure to work with her. Moreover, she listened to my concerns patiently about moving to Japan and supported me a lot. If you are also looking for a job in Japan, I definitely recommend you to talk to Pauline first!
I am delighted to know Kafung Chan, who gave me much support during my job search. Unlike some agents who simply provide info. already known, send resumes, and arrange meetings like robots. Kafung provided previous insight, market dynamics, tried to know me in detail and brought the opportunities to me by strongly recommending me to my dream companies. In addition, Specialized Group seems to have an excellent reputation in the financial industry (I found this when communicating with the companies). This is also a plus for the candidates. I would be happy to recommend Kafung, and Specialized Group to my friends.
It is nice to have a chance to cooperate with Specialized Group K.K. I got many opportunities and learned more about the interview skills and career path in Japan. Special thanks to Pauline Ma. She is kind and patient.
Pauline was very friendly and supportive. She really gave me lots of help!
I worked with Chris Agomuo and Yiwen Li. They always gave professional advices to me. They made me be well prepared for interviews, they listened carefully what kind of job I wanted, and they helped me make difficult decisions so that I could make up my mind confidently. Thanks to everything they do for me, I was able to land my dream job.
I got to know Daniel Biggs via LinkedIn and he responded swiftly at all times. In my case, there is a time difference in my job-hunting activities, but I attained instant support without any problems. I am looking forward to attaining an offer from a company I would like to work at. Thank you very much.
The most terrific agent company I've ever had. They work quickly and truly friendly to me, easy to talk about my carrier. Freddy Beadon was my assistant, and I will ask for his assistance again with future opportunities.
The service of Specialized is very professional and efficient.I’m very thankful for Joseph Oller that he gave me a lot of great advice to me and help me to find the new position.
I used multiple agencies for job hunting purposes. Specialized group is one of the most efficient one. I obtained most of my interview opportunities from Specialized group. The agents are professional, friendly, and persistent. I eventually found an ideal job through this agency. I really appreciated the persistent and professional help from Chris Agomuo.
