5. Ms. Yumi Hareyama

 

When asked about 'How they felt about the industrial visit to these 2 companies'  Ms. Ito wrote about Kawasaki as below,

 

 

グローバルになれば、その分国ごとに工夫が必要なことがわかりました。日本を離れて海外で働いている方にお会いすることも初めてのことでしたが、Mさんはとても楽しく活力を持って働いているように感じ、わたし自身も刺激を受けました。10月にご家族にお会いするとお聞きしました。

 

As regards the Global IT Giant Fujitsu, she says, 

 

 

At first, I was surprised to hear that about 2000 people work at FUJITSU at Pune. In addition, I learned the history and business expansion of FUJITSU through presentation. I am interested in working at office using English and Hindi. Therefore, this chance is precious for me. I want to work at global office more than before through visiting FUJITSU. In addition, people working at FUJITSU are very friendly and kind. I thought FUJITSU is very good company in all points. 

 

IJBC President Mr. Atre comments that "It is the duty of Pune's industries to tap resources' true potential, only by making them aware of the work opportunities. IJBC stands committed to this cause and will work to bridge the gaps."
