  1. Q1. What was your most impressive work?
    It was when our department won the grand prize for the in-house video competition aimed at fostering “wa,” a Japanese cultural concept that implies a peaceful unity and conformity within a social group, in which members prefer the continuation of a harmonious community over their personal interests. Our department created a video using several thousand photographs in which all our employees unified to create a bright future.
  2. Q2. What does your company do?
    It is a joint venture between Toray Industries, Inc. and Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co., Ltd. that manufactures and sells tape substrate for mounting display driver IC used for liquid crystal display (LCD) panels and plasma display panels.
  3. Q3. What does your department/section do and what work are you in charge of?
    Using my Chinese language skills in the sales and marketing department, I am in charge of Chinese Taipei clients. I am engaged in a wide range of operations: from product development to mass production, purchase orders and sales management, identifying market trends, etc.
  4. Q4. What kind of job do you mainly put a lot of effort into?
    Since Chinese Taipei is becoming a very important market, I try to provide prompt and reliable service in order to enhance customer satisfaction.
  5. Q5. When do you feel rewarded at work?
    I feel rewarded when the sales from Chinese Taipei increase as a result of my finding new customers and when I contribute to the company through various sales activities.
  6. Q6. What is it that you put a lot of effort into in your personal life?
    I had a child at the end of last year and currently put a lot of effort into raising my child while I work. During the weekday, I focus on my work and on the weekend, I focus on child-raising. Although child-raising is sometimes more difficult than work, I use my ingenuity to the maximum to retain the “two hares.”
