Nov 24 2017 Haoyu (China) Student Intern in Machine Learning/AI Venture

How did you find out about Active Connector?

I found the information on an A.I. Panel Discussion event which is was organised by Active Connector on Linkedin. Because I am a foreigner in Japan, I want to know more about the job market here.

How hard/easy would you describe job hunting in Japan?

To some extent, job hunting is not so hard for all the students because the professional skill of the majority is not focused on shukatsu by Japan company. But If I want to be different from normal Japanese workers, it will be pretty hard for me because I have to follow the rules of shukatsu to compete with Japanese based on Japanese, math and characters and my majority become useless.

How different would it have been without Active Connector?

Without Active Connector, maybe I will keep suffering from shukatsu and lose my advantage of the majority and be disadvantageous in job hunting because I can’t speak Japanese so well as Japanese.

How are you finding your new job? Any challenges/highlights?

I have just found my internship of A.I engineer. Maybe my ability in professional but not my Japanese is focused on my company  

Do you have any advice for other members of Active Connector who are job hunting?

I think they need not to worry about job hunting in Japan, as foreigners our advantage is not necessarily going to be Japanese.

Would you recommend Active Connector to others? Why?

I will recommend Active Connector because staff from Active Connector helped me a lot in job hunting. Because I don’t know the manner in Japan, maybe I have done something which is not so polite. But the staffs are so patient with my message and reply me swiftly.

What was the most helpful/positive feature of your experience with Active Connector?

I think it is my experience of internship helped me to get the current internship, the more I have done, the easier I will be to find a new job!
