Many companies are turning to shared housing as a place to promote products or offer services like job-hunting support.

Come on UP Co., a company operating share houses, and Disco Inc., a human resource consultant, both in Tokyo, jointly launched a service for Japanese students who studied abroad and are searching for jobs in Japan.

Disco, when it holds a job recruitment event targeting Japanese students who have just returned from overseas and need somewhere to live, gives them information about Come on UP housing.
