from an employee

I am Cary Gran F. Gregory a Registered Mechanical Engineer. 35 years of age with a wife and a son now living together in Japan. I came to Japan in 2013 in search of a challenging career. Now working at Showa Kogyo who is working on Civil Works for the government projects. Mainly the projects are renovation of sewage pipes. With the companys training I learned and developed my skills specially critical thinking and reasoning. The first year of my career here was quite tough and its just normal just like when you got a new job. You have to learn, adjust and adopt on everything here in Japan. For me it was a challenging part for me to achieve but I DID IT not fully a 100% to say but still an on going process. I learned tradition , customs and ate delicious food here in Japan. Even I earned a Level 3 Japanese Language Proficiency Cerificate. Having to adopt yourself here in Japan you can learn easily how to work with japanese people and will know how dedicated they are at work.
Join me if and only if you can accept and believe in yourself that you can do the same also.
