Elsie Soh (EA Personnel Number: R1105510)
Elsie was born and bred in Singapore and majored in Human Resources and Finance in her studies. She was always interested in both numbers and people interactions, so this was the natural choice for her. With a growing interest in the culture, she took up the Japanese language as well as a student.
Before joining the recruitment industry, Elsie was working as a coordinator in an MNC company, and later working in HR in a local boutique PR firm. She became more intrigued by the sense of fulfillment in helping candidates find the right jobs, so she took a leap of faith and made a career switch into the recruitment industry in 2011. She marked her professional career in recruitment with one of Japan's larger recruitment companies, and then joined JAC Recruitment in 2016 as part of the Accounting/Finance & HR Division.
She has since accumulated a wealth of knowledge working with Japanese organisations, and specialises in the search for the right fit for her growing base of Japanese partners. With her flexibility in working across industry verticals and with different clients, she also works with several non-Japanese MNC businesses, sourcing the right talent for their teams.
Elsie believes in being sincere and honest to both candidates and clients, as trust and integrity are both strong values in her recruitment career. Being able to place candidates in their dream jobs brings great satisfaction to her and is the motivation for her to continue in this industry.
