Returnees to Indonesia get job help

Kyodo

The Japanese Embassy in Jakarta has held an information session to help Indonesians who have returned home after failing to pass Japan’s exam to be certified as caregivers and nurses find employment, looking to capitalize on their knowledge of Japanese culture and language.

According to Japan International Corporation of Welfare Services, a total of 892 Indonesians came to Japan under an economic partnership agreement to accept foreign caregivers, but about 270 have already returned home due to the low success rate in the exam, which is conducted in Japanese.
