Q. What kind of career path did you take after graduating from TCJ? Also, please tell us the reason why you chose your career path.
I came to Japan after graduating from my home country's engineering college with a degree in civil engineering, and then graduated from TCJ and got a job. I came to Japan with a JLPT N5 level, but I studied hard at TCJ. I was able to pass N2 before graduation. Thanks to the kind teachers.
My first job was at Kyodo Engineering Co., Ltd. for nine months, and then I joined a company specializing in civil engineering called Jizaki Road Co.,Ltd. I am currently working full-time as a civil engineering supervisor.
Q. What are your goals and dreams for the future? Please be as specific as possible.
I have wanted to be a civil engineering supervisor since I graduated from high school, and now I am fulfilling my dream at that time. However, in the wide world of civil engineering, I am studying to become an expert on mixtures for civil engineering works.
In three years, I would like to study mixtures thoroughly in graduate school and be able to write a thesis. The company I work for has an annual technical presentation, and next year I plan to give a presentation on concrete. Currently, I am working as a supervisor at a site called the Electric Cable Joint Construction, and I am learning about this new world every day.
Q. Please give some advice to students who will join TCJ in the future and current students based on your experience.
Please study hard and follow the guidance of TCJ teachers. The teachers may seem strict, but that's because they love you and want you to have a good future. When I was looking for a job, I went to many interviews and failed many times. However, my homeroom teacher always cheered me on, saying "Nue-chan, you can do it, don't give up".
To all the students, please look at your future dreams and be patient with the current hardships and overtake them. There is a happy world waiting for those who work hard. Please do your best. As a senior student, I will always support you.
