Computer/EE Technology Specialist

“There's a sense of accomplishment in solving problems for your clients, particularly when they take your advice.”

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

The initial difficulties were fairly trivial, things like figuring out where to buy specific items or how much something costs in terms of dollars. Also, trying to sort trash when the instructions are all in Japanese was somewhat complicated.

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

I had previously visited Japan so I had a feel for what it would be like. However, the selection and price in supermarkets were very different from what I expected.

How would you describe your co-workers?

The atmosphere changes as new people join and senior members graduate, but overall they are a friendly group who are easy to get along and work with.

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

There's a sense of accomplishment in solving problems for your clients, particularly when they take your advice.

What are the challenging or difficult aspects of your work?

As previously mentioned, our job involves solving problems; sometimes the problems aren't so easy to solve. There are also procedural issues when prosecuting patents that are challenging but interesting.

I am looking forward to experience...

visiting Hokkaido and Okinawa. Okinawa in particular since the climate differs greatly from what I'm used to back in Canada.

What is the most important thing that working at the Firm has taught you about yourself?

Always double or triple check your work.

What advice would you give to entry level recruits?

Don't be afraid to ask questions; you're not expected to know everything when you start. Take your time to learn how to do your job properly and be open to advice and constructive criticism from your peers.
