1. What are the details of your career to date?

I wanted to work on infrastructure projects and plant development projects so I entered a consulting company as an engineer after graduating from university and worked there for three-and-a-half years. After taking my master’s degree, I started to think about challenging myself in a new business field outside Japan and changed jobs to explore my potential. That is how I joined Sumitomo Electric Industries in 2010, and I am now working in the Global Business Department.

2. Why did you decide to join Sumitomo Electric Group?

Sumitomo Electric Industries is a global company. It does not only do business in existing markets but also seeks to challenge new markets and expand its horizons. It’s a spirit that I felt coincided with my own vision of wanting to learn and grow, so I decided to join Sumitomo Electric Industries.

3. What has been most rewarding aspect of your experience at Sumitomo Electric Group?

Soon after I started working for Sumitomo Electric Industries, my department successfully received an order from a big plant project. It was a project for which the department had long wanted to obtain an agreement, and I also took part in the negotiations with the customer, getting involved in proposing products, offering estimates and adjusting delivery times. It wasn’t easy and there were many hardships to overcome but we worked together as a team and succeeded in obtaining a 100% share of the project’s cable needs. Being engaged in such a big project from the time I joined the company and learning about the difficulties of infrastructure projects and trading issues was a rewarding experience for me.

4. What is the best piece of career advice you can offer people who are seeking a job with Sumitomo Electric Group?

Impossible is nothing. As long as you don’t give up, there is no hardship you cannot overcome. Always strive to do your best.
