Q1

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

During the information sessions and interviews, I got the impression that I was being treated as an individual with a unique personality as opposed to a dispensable cog in a machine who was expected to perform a rote duty. I joined CAC because I felt that the company provided an environment where I could be my genuine self on the job without having to worry about conforming to others more than I needed to.

Q2

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

Expressions of gratitude that I get from our customers are very rewarding. I understand that I should be doing my work without expecting to be thanked by our customers. But when they are happy with what I have spent my time making, that tells me that it has had a positive affect on the operations of their entire organization as well as on individual users, and that it has made their day-to-day work easier. These things give me a sense of fulfillment, and the motivation to do even better.

Q3

What do you like about CAC?

●I am able to work in an environment where I can learn IT skills on the job.
●We can all speak to each other in an informal way without worrying about seniority or position.
●The company has a relaxed corporate culture and we can talk about anything.
●I have the opportunity to do international work.

Q4

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

I would like to become someone who is able to lead projects that span across multiple countries. The way people engage in operations can be quite different depending on their nationality or the country they are stationed in. So, in order to direct a global project, you will need not only project management skills, but also a good understanding of different cultures, indirect management abilities, and an understanding of different working styles. The difficulty level for positions like these will be high exactly for these reasons, but I would like to take on such positions since the sense of achievement will naturally be that much greater.

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

There are many points that you may be concerned about when you are choosing which company to work for, such as salary, benefits, the industry the company operates in, and its corporate culture. All of these points are important. That being said, you need to keep in mind that, from here on, most of your time on weekdays will be spent on the job. From that viewpoint, I think it would be best to choose a path that will give you joy on a day-to-day basis. For this reason, I would recommend that you make your decision based on whether the company offers the kind of job that you truly want to do and whether you are interested in its business.
