The Importance of Language Skill and Having Good Awareness of Yourself
In the current situation in Japan, most of the international students have to study Japanese in order to be able to work in a Japanese company without any obstacles. However, as the world becomes more and more global, some Japanese companies have started to use English to communicate in daily life. Furthermore, Ms. HIANG also wants to give us some advices about what to do before entering the working field. She mentioned that one of the most important things is we have to know ourselves before choosing the jobs. We have to know what kind of jobs we want to do and what fits you.

The Reasons Choosing to Work In Sendai and 77 Bank
Two of international employees said that is due to the number of population. Tokyo is too crowded for them. The lifestyle in Sendai is more relaxable. On the other hand, they would like to accumulate the work experience in the biggest regional bank of Tohoku area not only for the background of business school but they could contribute what they have learned to construct a communication bridge between their own countries and Japan, especially help with their customers recovering from The Great East Japan Earthquake.
Difficulties For International Employees
As we had a chance to ask a question to international employees, we would like to know the difficulties they had to face during their newcomer. To summarise, they mentioned two main problems they had faced. They said that the hardest part is how to adopt to this company culture and the way they work. It is too much information in details for them. Also, the hierarchy in Japan is so complicated for them to understand.
