Road Planning Dept.
In order to gain work experience, I was temporarily transferred to our sister company, Oriental Consultants, for five years. During that time, I was in charge of designing a section of the Tomei Expressway. At the beginning when I didn’t have much experience, I took my own decisions and proceeded with the design, and because of lack of time did not consult others. Later, some calculation mistakes and misunderstandings were found in my work. Due to this, some work had to be redone and it took up much more time than it should have.
Thus, I put efforts into following basic rules, such as confirming beforehand with my experienced seniors, asking questions, and checking the completed work. Even if the result is the same, if the output comes out of an examination from a broad perspective, it’ll be more convincing to the client, and as a result, lead to a more effective use of time.
Now that I am back at OC Global, I have started working on overseas projects. By understanding the different needs of each country, I would like to contribute by using the techniques and know-how I learned in Japan.
