Operations & international sales When it comes to my job, there are many things that are worth experiencing. My involvement in operations helps me to understand the specifics of important documentation as well as to how the specifics of basic shipments work. While on the other hand, my work in the sales part of my team allows me to use my skills and knowledge to go to different places and events to meet people & hopefully gain customers. This is a great combination for a job because not only do I always get to keep learning and improve my knowledge, but I also get to experience new things and meet new people. I have gained many new friends outside of the company in doing so!
This job makes me feel accomplished as a team Of course, logistics is a very challenging & insightful job, so the when it comes to mistakes, everyone will make them. So when I make a mistake, I make sure that I remain calm through the process and think logically about what can we do to solve the issue at hand, and if the mistake is a larger mistake, how can we/I prevent this from happening again. So it's important to realize that while mistakes are quite common especially when you're starting out, how you approach and handle them is very important not just for an individual, but also within the team you work in. This has been one of the greatest learning points I've had since I've been at Sankyo.
To expand on my experiences & knowledge in the logistics industry Prior to joining Sankyo, I had worked as a truck driver for one year. During that time I learned many things about transporting different products by truck. However, I felt like it wasn't something I wanted to keep doing in my life. So I began to search for other opportunities, and I was introduced to Sankyo Corporation. I saw Sankyo as not only an additional opportunity for me to live and work in Japan, but also to improve my knowledge in the industry. And through the many interviews I had with the people in Sankyo, I could see myself contributing to the goal of this company in hopes that I could bring an outside perspective and introduce a different way of doing things.
Currently I am only 7 months in the company.
(5 months in the Sales Promotion Team → 2 months in the International Sales Team)
It's no question that finding jobs is hard. But the most important thing to consider when looking for jobs in my opinion is your independence. Think about yourself and what a company can do for you as well as what you can bring to the company. Sometimes you may have to work in a hard or distasteful environment in the beginning, but set your goals and really stand up for yourself to achieve those goals.
