-Studying Japanese was just a hobby-

After finishing my university entrance examination, I wanted to explore something new, something extraordinary. My sister, who had already studied Japanese and was working at a Japanese company in India, suggested that I learn Japanese, calling it a great language and a fun experience. She said, “If you’re looking for something new, you should give it a try.” From that point on, I began my journey of studying Japanese. 

Initially, I studied Japanese out of sheer interest and as a hobby, relying on various resources like textbooks and YouTube videos. It was during this phase that I discovered the FAST OFFER International program, which proved to be a turning point in my life. 

 

-Dreams of Working in Japan-

Once I discovered FAST OFFER International, I delved deeper into the program to learn how I could establish a career and secure a job in Japan. Through attending sessions hosted by ASIA to JAPAN, I discovered numerous job opportunities within Japanese companies. I also had the chance to connect with program alumni who shared their successful experiences with me. Hearing about their positive experiences made me realize how FAST OFFER International could help me secure job placement in Japan. 

In addition to learning about the program, I was fascinated by the advancements in Japanese technology. From the ubiquitous use of bullet trains to cutting-edge innovations like vending machines, AI, and 5G, I was captivated and wanted to learn more. As a result, I began to dream of working in Japan. 

 

-Studying Japanese and Internship Experience- 

To pursue a career in Japan, it was necessary for me to attain a higher level of proficiency in the Japanese language. As a result, I dedicated myself to studying Japanese with great diligence. I enrolled in Japanese classes called “Hirameki classes” at Pune University, despite the classes not being related to my major. During the COVID-19 pandemic in India, all classes were shifted online, but I continued to enjoy the classes. The instructors imparted not only knowledge of the Japanese language but also their personal experiences of the culture and life in Japan. Their guidance and support during the lockdown phase were invaluable to me. Thanks to their expert teaching, I was able to progress efficiently and effortlessly from JLPT N5 to N3. Although Japanese is commonly regarded as a difficult language, the Hirameki instructors made it an engaging and interactive experience, fueling my enthusiasm and motivation to study. Despite never having been to Japan, I remained motivated to study the language further and am currently studying at the N2 level. 

Furthermore, I had the opportunity of working as a web developer intern at ASIA to JAPAN Lab, where I acquired the knowledge and skills requisite for employment at a Japanese company. The internship program was recommended to me by my Hirameki class instructor, and despite initially harboring doubts about my eligibility, I submitted an application. Fortunately, I passed the programming test and interview and embarked on a fruitful internship experience. Through the internship, I learned several development languages and created an application. Additionally, I gained insight into the working culture at Japanese companies. During morning calls, we would review the previous day’s accomplishments, establish objectives for the day ahead, and set weekly goals. This systematic process enabled me to establish clear objectives for my work. The importance of teamwork was also underscored during the internship. I realized that completing a website or application was not achievable by individual effort alone, and that team members must collaborate to achieve success. This experience further strengthened my resolve to pursue a career in Japan. 

 

-Job Hunting for Japanese Companies- 

The job-hunting process for Japanese companies was made easy for me by ASIA to JAPAN. I followed their instructions and submitted the required documents, profile, and PR video. Throughout this process, my teachers were very supportive and provided guidance. Additionally, I was fortunate to have an extremely helpful and supportive mentor who provided me with detailed advice and conducted several interview practice runs with me, even on weekends. 

However, passing the initial company interviews was not easy for me. After several attempts, I began to feel discouraged and doubted my ability to succeed. Nevertheless, my mentor and the staff at ASIA to JAPAN continued to motivate and encourage me. They reminded me that I was learning and growing from my experiences and that I should not give up. I am deeply grateful for their kindness and support. 

After I received a job offer from a company, I promptly expressed my gratitude to my mentor. Without his dedication and support, I would not have been successful in obtaining a job in Japan. 

 

-Goals at the company-

The company I will be working for is a global manufacturing company that offers solutions based on consumer needs in a wide range of industries, including retail, hospitality, and logistics. With about 150 branches worldwide, I am honored to have the opportunity to work for such a renowned company. 

My goal at this company is to contribute to product development and see the products I develop being sold and used by many consumers. As a newcomer, I aspire to learn different technologies and gain vast experience to become a professional software engineer in the company. 

Furthermore, I have a passion for traveling and exploring new places. Japan has always intrigued me, and I am eager to visit the beautiful places I have seen on the internet. I strive to maintain a healthy work-life balance and pursue my love for travel while working.
 

-Message to Viewers-

In retrospect, discovering FAST OFFER International was the turning point of my journey. Without this program, I wouldn’t have even dreamt of working in Japan. I believe that the staff at ASIA to JAPAN and your mentor will provide you with the necessary guidance and support to help you realize your dreams of working in Japan. I am grateful to have been blessed with such a program, and working in Japan is one of my biggest accomplishments. Therefore, I encourage you to not give up on your aspirations and keep striving towards achieving your goals. 

Thank you.
