Q1

What did you do before joining GPSS?

I was a geological consultant(landslide surveying related to infrastructure such as roads; rockfall surveys, groundwater surveys, etc.). I was tasked with conducting geological surveys at factories that required access to mountains, highways, and groundwater.

Q2

Please tell us the reason why you decided to join GPSS.

I was fascinated by the clear vision and the ability to work with a global feel. As it is sometimes said that "common sense in Japan is insane in the world," I want to be a person who can work in any environment. GPSS is an environment created by representatives and staff who have worked in a global environment, so I emphasized performance-based and wanted to work in that environment myself.

Q3

What is your role at GPSS?

I am involved in the EPC business (design, procurement, construction) of geothermal power plants.
Currently, I am in charge of a power plant enhancement project in Miyagi prefecture and the construction of a new power plant in Gifu prefecture.

Q4

Please tell us "the moment when your soul ignited" after joining GPSS.

It's only been six months since I joined the company, so I don’t think I have had that moment...yet. However, since we are a company that respects individuals and allows employees to do various things and try taking on new tasks, I think that I will experience that moment while tackling one or several of various challenges.

Q5

Please give a word to future GPSS members!

When I interview for this job, I honestly communicated what I wanted to do and how I thought about it. Even if you don't know what you want to do, it's important to clearly communicate your direction. GPSS accepts it as it is, so if you have an honest interview, you will be able to work with a sense of conviction after joining the company.
