QPlease explain the traits about recruitment in Sysmex

We offers recruitment by “job type” and expect our new hires to excel in roles that match their career aspirations, in addition to the experiences and knowledge acquired throughout their studies and careers to date.
Learn more about job types.

The type of job will be decided based on consultation during the screening process.
You will be asked to select your desired job type at the time of entry, but this may change as you progress through the screening process.
Through the exchange of information during the screening process, we may discuss with you the possibility of changing job types.
I If you did not specify a job type at the time of Entry through our website, your first assignment will be decided based on information exchanged during the screening process.
We will provide you with further information in order to understand each job type during the screening.
Company information sessions, interviews with human resources, job-specific interviews, and visits to sites are envisioned as opportunities for providing information.
