We, Genesis Healthcare, pioneer in the genetic testing industry in Japan, are as such a group of professionals that are seeking to accelerate this new industry with innovative thinking and raising new talents. The nature of our service we provide, which was born out of a union of science and IT, attracts many professionals with different backgrounds varying from holding degrees in science, engineering to social sciences seeking a challenge to expand their horizons.
We put an emphasis on team work, which is why our hiring process does not end with just meeting HR personnel but members of staff across functions will participate in a candidate’s interview over a couple of rounds. Lastly candidates will be invited to meet executive level member of staff for a final interview. Each milestone will provide time for both the candidate and interviewer to reflect on the candidate’s career path, their desire to eventually hold an executive level position or choose a path of professionalism, where they envision themselves in the next 3 to 5 years etc. which will enable both parties to discuss each other’s thoughts together. Due to multiple rounds of interviews, candidates will be asked to visit the office multiple times, however through having a conversation with our employees and being in the office environment we hope that candidates can develop a sense and understanding for what we do and strive to become.
