Simply standing around in Japan could land you a job. Literally. Especially if you're young, would rather not be tied down to a full time job, and have GPRS on your cell phone. Japanese youth lured by the freedom of part-time work can now turn to Otetsudai Networks for instant part-time employment wherever they are.

The service whips up a mini CV illustrating skill set and job focus, and users â€" which now number 45,000 - take a GPRS reading. Then they just hang around and wait to be matched with potential employers. It works both ways of course. Businesses looking for immediate staffing send out a request to the Otetsudai Networks, and within minutes receive a list of possible hires available in the area, along with ratings from previous bosses, and qualifications.
