Japan was my logical choice, not only because I love the culture and the language, but also because I wanted to see a different approach to business. In order to get used to a new country, I joined TCJ for a year, prior to my MBA, to improve my Japanese to a conversational level.
I have not yet decided on a specific career path but I enjoy meeting new people and a challenging work environment and especially a place where I can practice Japanese everyday.
I have always been interested in new technologies, so I would love to find a job in an IT firm or a recruitment firm, helping people from all over the world experience Japan and its culture.
When I joined TCJ, I had never studied Japanese before. So I was unable to communicate on many levels, however in only one year, my Japanese went to such a level that I was able to communicate in every day situations (from opening a bank account to renting an apartment). TCJ was also really supportive in helping me to integrate into Japan by providing advice and support daily with all the new challenges of moving to a very different country! I really love the memories of my time at TCJ!
