Japan is known as one of the most advanced countries in terms of industry and technology. The more the existing industry develops, the more workers are needed. Meanwhile, in Japan the population of productive age is decreasing, so it requires workers from foreign countries to support these activities. PDS is one of the best employment services companies in Indonesia which operates in the fields of HR recruitment services, education, job skills training and document management, etc. Since 2016, PDS has opened sending interns to Japan based on a system regulated by the Japanese government and the Indonesian Ministry of Manpower. To be able to meet various user requests, we provide language and skills training that is appropriate to the field of apprenticeship (construction, agriculture, manufacturing, caregiver, automotive, etc.).

Types of work that Japan requires for Japanese interns:

Care Worker


The formation of a gap between the productive age and the elderly means that Japan needs quite a lot of care workers. This job is a type of job looking after the elderly that doesn’t just focus on feeding and accompanying them. The position of care workers themselves is more focused on monitoring the health of the elderly, such as medical companions and medication-taking routines.

Machinery and tool parts industry


Another job needed by this country is machine parts and tooling industries which are related to the machinery industry. In this field, workers will focus on several jobs such as electroplating to machine inspection. Not everyone can apply for this job because it requires a skills test classification first.
