“I worked for a foreign company, but the range of my responsibility was too narrow because of the top-down culture. The company couldn’t accept my drastic challenges.”
“I worked for a traditional domestic company which has a strict seniority system. I was not comfortable with the working place and also wondering about the traditional sales methods.”
there are many opportunities to show your potential and abilities.

1. Maximize your presence. This company is different from other foreign-affiliated companies, it is not a large-scale company with about 200 employees globally. For this reason, each employee is a very important member not only within the Japanese corporation, but also global. Every employee shows high presence. Surprisingly, the headquarters CEO remembers all of the Japanese corporate staff, which has led us to high motivation. In addition, once a year, salespersons have a global sales award at overseas resorts. This is an actual opportunity that you can directly feel your presence.

2. Self-Development leads into company growth:Employees do not exist only for the growth of the company. Based on the idea that each employee's self-growth leads to corporate growth, the company has a corporate culture of supporting individual growth plans. The strength is different from salesperson to salesperson. Although the minimum rules are set, there is a good working environment to demonstrate your abilities and results in your sales style. Each salespersons have different backgrounds of sales experiences, you can learn from them about different sales techniques from yours.
