RareJob started with the goal of encouraging millions of Japanese to speak fluent English. When Kato-san visited the Philippines, he saw the great potential of Filipinos and the English language. He experienced Filipinos' hospitality and proficiency in English first-hand. He believed that these two characteristics are very important in teaching the English language; thus, RareJob was born.
We started small with our first tutors from the University of the Philippines. Our capital increased through third-party investments. Our first headquarters was established in Tokyo. It was also in the same year that RareJob started accepting tutors all over the country.
We started offering our services to corporate clients. We reached our first milestone: 1,000 lesson-conducting tutors. The increase was mainly due to the expansion of our accepted schools. RareJob is no longer exclusive to students from the University of the Philippines.
RareJob continued to expand. We had around 2,000 lesson-conducting tutors.
RareJob's total number of free trial users exceeded 100,000. We started offering lessons from 5 AM to 12 MN (PH time) in the same year.
It was a very good year for RareJob. We got the "Privacy Mark" and the total number of free trial users exceeded more than 200,000. In this year, we have already provided more than 10 million lessons.
RareJob got listed in the Mothers, Tokyo Stock Exchange. By this time, we have already reached 3,000 lesson-conducting tutors.
We have already provided more than 15 million lessons. RareJob is still continuously growing.
English is the world’s language. Here in RareJob, we believe that everyone should learn how to communicate in English, including the people from the world’s third largest economy, Japan.

From "The English I know" to "The English I speak", and finally, to "The English I communicate in".
The English language is an important communication tool. It is commonly used to communicate with people who speak a variety of different languages. We believe that the acquisition of English results in a sense of achievement as communication increases.
The first time I came to the Philippines, I was amazed at the Filipinos' English proficiency and hospitality. Surprisingly, there were only a few job opportunities being offered because of geographical reasons.
RareJob tries to give opportunities beyond borders.
In RareJob, Filipinos can work and earn at home by helping Japanese students be better in English. At the same time, RareJob provides an avenue for Japanese to learn and master the English language in a convenient and easy manner.
