SoftSource has completed more than 400 searches for global software, internet, and cloud services companies in Japan. This experience enables us to help you understand the market landscape including not only what types of candidates are available to you, but also how much it will likely cost to secure them and how much time it will take.

The single most important factor that influences our ability to secure compelling candidates for you is having a deep understanding of your value proposition, business strategy, and obstacles to success. Having this enables us to not only reach job seekers, but it also empowers us to compel people who aren't actively searching for new positions to come forward as well.

We leverage targeted referral generation, Internet research, and cold-calling to map out competitive organizations and identify those who are the strongest contributors as well as those who are most likely to be receptive to new opportunities. Additionally, prior to interviewing a prospective candidate we will make clear the candidate's motivations, level of interest, and hot-buttons in order to optimize your chances of securing the top choice.


SoftSource has introduced many quality candidates to us, and they were also a trusted agent when I was searching for a new position. I have a strong appreciation for their professionalism and their vast network.

SoftSource delivered for us big-time. Within 2 weeks of starting our Japan Country Manager search SoftSource had secured a short-list of “A” caliber candidates who could all handle the job. This made the selection process difficult, but that was a nice problem to have.
