Q1

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

The main thing that made me decide to join was how easy it was to communicate with the people working here. There was an atmosphere at the information sessions where I felt that I could talk to them in a casual way. The interviewers at the interviews were also easy to speak with and I felt that this was a company where I could express myself as I truly saw things.

Q2

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

It's rewarding when I get a sense of achievement. I often work on abstract challenges, so I get a sense of achievement when I've been able to overcome a variety of challenges including identifying what the customer's true intentions are and what I can do to make a system that will better meet their needs, as well as (secretly) figuring out how I can personally work more comfortably and ultimately delivering a system that the customer is happy to use.

Q3

What do you like about CAC?

I like the open corporate culture where I can have a casual chat with managers and go out for a meal with them. The other day, some of my colleagues and I went on a trip to a hot spring with our department manager!
On a more serious note, I like how we are given the opportunity to take charge of certain jobs from early on, and this allows us to learn, even if we do not succeed at a task that we set out at full steam to do. These are valuable experiences.

Q4

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

My immediate goal is to become a person that my superiors and subordinates can have confidence in. So long as I'm working in a company, the most important thing is to be able to communicate easily and effectively with other people. And I think it takes a congenial and trustworthy person to allow that to happen.

MESSAGE

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

In contrast to preparing for exams, I think you will have many experiences where you don't succeed despite having given it all you've got. But these so-called failures that result from your best effort can provide you with valuable lessons that you can learn from. These experiences will undoubtedly help you develop your personal capabilities. So believe in your abilities and find the job that feels right for you. I hope for the best for you!
