Q1

Please tell us about what made you decide to join CAC.

The company was doing things that I wanted to get involved with, and there were people that I felt I'd like to work with. As I came to know the company better, I found out that it was a great fit in terms of the characteristics that I was looking for in a company, which are "global" and "monozukuri" (the making of things). During employee visits and interviews, I got the general impression that the people working here were earnestly engaging in their work. That's what made me decide to join.

Q2

What are some things about your work that you find rewarding?

It is rewarding to have a customer thank you for the work you've done. I'm responsible for supporting our customers' IT needs at the Asia IT support desk. There was this one incident where a customer's file server was infected by a virus and we provided emergency support including infection source identification and file recovery. The customer thanked us after we completed our support. To know that you are providing a useful service for your customers makes your days all the more rewarding.

Q3

What do you like about CAC?

I think it would be how we are able to work in close proximity with our customers. While I'm sure things are different between different departments, I get actual feedback from long-term customers about things that we are set up to support and also about potential cases where we may be able to offer support. I think there are a lot of opportunities like these at CAC.

Q4

What are your dreams or goals? (What type of person do you aspire to be?)

My goal is to become a global PM (project manager) in five years. I'm still not there yet, with many challenges in areas such as IT, English proficiency, and management abilities, but I would like to be able to manage overseas projects one day.

Please give us a message for students who are currently job hunting!

I'm sure that you are going through many new things such as doing research on companies and going to interviews. You may often feel lost in trying to make decisions for your future. I think the most important thing to keep in mind is what you truly want to do, and to think hard about who you are. The answers are inside you!
