I was in customer service and sales at a kimono shop.
When I was a university student, I was studying environmental policy in Germany and had the goal of revitalizing the region with renewable energy. Originally from Sendai City in Miyagi Prefecture, I experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake when I was a junior high school student, and wanted to expand renewable energy in the Tohoku region so that electricity could be delivered to places where electricity is needed as soon as possible in the event of a disaster. As a new graduate, I didn't find a company in this field , so I got a job at another company, but I wanted to work in the field of renewable energy. When I started job hunting again, I was introduced to GPSS by an agent.
I am currently handling several responsibilities with the aim of creating an environment where employees can work comfortably at GPSS. In addition to specific tasks such as managing company mobile phones and training new employees, I also enjoy planning and organising various events.
In my first year at the company, I was tapped to be the event coordinator of an employee training trip and succeeded! Regardless of age or gender, the project was designed so that each person can demonstrate their strengths, and I think that is the reason that the event was so successful. If you don't mind, please take a look at the video of the 2020 GPSS Snowball Fight when you have time!
GPSS is a company where you can exert your strengths when what you want to do and the company's vision match. If you raise your hand to do it at any age, you have the chance to be given the opportunity. I'm 24 years old, but I'm actively involved in projects that I want to do, besides secretarial work. Instead of waiting for work to come down to them, I think people who want to be pro-active can play an active role in GPSS.
