11,325 hopefuls apply for employment on bases

Date Posted: 2003-06-07

More than eleven thousand people applied for on-base jobs in May, a somewhat smaller number than a year ago. Officials say 11,325 completed applications for jobs on the military bases before the May 31 deadline for the regular recruitment of Japanese nationals. They say 9,488 people left their applications in Naha and Koza Labor Management Offices, while 1,837 submitted their applications on-line, the first time it was possible to do so.

A record of 20,000+ applicants was set in May 2001, when the Okinawa Area Coordinator announced a plan to hire local nationals to work in mess halls as a part of U.S. military's "Good Neighbor Policy."

Officials at the Naha Labor Management Office say that the 2001 was an aberration, and the situation is returning to normal. They say that on average, slightly over 10,000 people apply each year.

The Naha Branch Office is the designated location to apply for jobs with the Navy and Marine Corps, while the Koza Branch Office takes applications for the Air Force, Army and Okinawa Exchange. However, the system is now fully computerized and integrated.

Those who did not submit their application by the deadline will have another opportunity with a supplementary recruitment from Nov. 1~30. The LMO website is www.lmo.go.jp.
