“In order to succeed at the Firm, I think that having an open mindset and keep-on-going attitude will definitely help to overcome the challenges you’re going to face on a daily basis.”

How was Japan in reality to what you had imagined before you arrived?

I have always loved Japanese culture ever since my first visit as a tourist way back in 2005. I was expecting the working lifestyle in Japan is going to be tougher than other country, since everyone seems to be so driven and hard-working. However, it has been a nice surprise to see that not only they work hard, they also play hard too! The working lifestyle here in Japan has exceeded my expectations so far and I’m enjoying it to the fullest.

How would you describe co-workers?

They are all so smart and helpful! In the Bio Team especially, the leaders and seniors have been really friendly and they are always ready to share some advice whenever I need their help. They make me feel part of the team since the very beginning :)

What were the initial difficulties of adjusting to life in Osaka?

I think the initial difficulties are the “setting-up” period, where you have to settle a lot of things in Japanese, for example making your phone contract or making your apartment contract. Personally, it’s easier because I know basic Japanese but the whole experience can be quite overwhelming at times.

When I am not at work, I am

relaxing at home, doing yoga or travelling to new places.

Do you feel like you're having an impact directly on the clients that you work for?

Yes definitely! For each and every case, we have to understand the technology and what the client intends to do with such technology. In other words, all the correspondence we are doing with the client is always directed to help the client to achieve what they want to pursue.

What have been your three fondest leisure experiences in Japan?

1. All the theme parks! (USJ and Disneyland)
2. Traveling to Japan countryside, e.g. Shirakawa-go, Miyajima island
3. Autumn leaves and Hanami

I am looking forward to experience

the winter festival in Hokkaido and watching the 2020 Tokyo Olympics live!

Of all the adjectives floating in your brain, give us three that best describe your life in Japan?

Enjoyable, Challenging and Fulfilling.

What attributes do you believe will make a recruit succeed at work in the Firm?

I think having an open mindset and keep-on-going attitude will definitely help to overcome the challenges you’re going to face on a daily basis.
