Japan Centre in Pakistan


Plus W, Inc., the global recruiting company based in Japan, and Pakistan’s National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) are collaborating to establish Japan Centre in order to help the students chart their career paths after graduation. We set up the office on the campus, where our Japanese and Pakistani staff are on duty.

We strive for human resource exchange to assist Pakistani advanced IT engineers to find employment at Plus W, remote work from Pakistan for Japanese corporations, and other work opportunities.

Activities of Japan Centre

Support for Employment in Japan / Holding Job Fairs

We will provide the latest information on Japanese market, lifestyle in Japan, and traditions at work that they should be aware. We will help with obtaining visa, traveling to Japan, editing resume, and other needs. The Centre will also work with NUST to plan and execute a variety of activities. We will also hold events to match Japanese corporations seeking Pakistani IT talents and students who desire employment in Japanese Businesses, as well as planning and managing internship programs in Japanese corporations.

Endowed Program

To raise advanced IT engineers who are work-ready after graduation, AOTS Endowed Program will provide a wide range of seminars. Upon opening of Japan Centre, we will begin recruiting engineers to work for Plus W through our programs to share technical skills needed as an engineer, as well as information and knowledge required for work in the Japanese market.

Holding Business Hackathons

Plus W is leading the planning of hackathons for NUST students. These hackathons aim to provide chances to create and develop a variety of careers that surpass the conventional form of labor such as employment.
