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

During my job hunt, I was given many opportunities to meet with people who worked at the company, and I was able to get a feel for the company's atmosphere. I think that was significant for me. Specifically, I felt that seniority was seen as being irrelevant, in a good way. I got the impression that senior and junior colleagues, superiors and subordinates got along with each other very well. And that impression hasn't changed in the time since I actually joined the company.
The company has a very open environment where I can comfortably express my opinions.
Another reason was that, since the company was actively engaged in international projects and new technologies, it was exciting to think about what I might be able to offer in that context.


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

I find the opportunity to interact with end users to be very rewarding. When you are working exclusively in development, it can often be the case that you don't get to interact directly with customers.
For this reason, situations that involve interaction with our end users―the people who actually use our solutions―have been very rewarding for me. They have also been an opportunity for me to develop a different perspective than what I would have from a development standpoint.
I also think that it has been great for my personal growth to have these experiences at a young age.


What do you like about CAC?

I touched on this in my reason for joining the company, and what I like about the company is that the relationship between people working here is very up front, which makes it very easy to do our work. People are able to express their views without much concern for seniority. For me personally, I think this has led to personal growth. The scope of jobs that you are equipped to do or you are asked to do tend to expand the more you state your own opinions. And that naturally makes things more fulfilling, which then allows my passion for my job to grow.


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

My goal is to become someone that our customers can rely on.
Having experienced a number of projects, I've come to feel that our ties with our customers are very important, and that the ideal relationship is one where our customers have confidence in leaving the job to our company and myself. There are actually many people like that around me so I keep in mind how I can be like them in my day-to-day work.


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

Although job hunting can be daunting, it can also be a great opportunity for people to take a hard look at themselves. It was for me. Take the time to rediscover your strengths and weaknesses, as well as likes and dislikes. Going about it in this way has a way of adding other dimensions to job hunting, rather than it just being daunting.
