Q1, What past accomplishments gave you satisfaction.
I was a nurse in Japan.
The past accomplishment which gave me satisfaction is that I was in charge of organ donation for brain death patients for the first time in 13 years at the hospital I worked for.
Actually the nurses are not only considering the patient’s wellness but cares for their family’s emotional state as well.
Additionally nurses collaborates with other professionals such as doctors. Organ donation involves more than 100 medical staff for only 2 days in order to save patients.
However the person who will donate the organ must be taken care of to keep the organ well functioning while it is not yet being transferred to the other patient who will receive the organ.
Indeed, it was a great honor for me to be involved in that task as a member of that team.
More over being in charge of the job at the hospital for the first time in 13 years has given me a lot of confidence.
Q2, What makes you want to work hard.
It motivates me to work hard for the reason that I would like to have a career growth and have a good position in the company.
If I am successful with the project where I am in-charge for, I feel very much accomplished specially when my work has greatly contributed to the company’s success.
Q3, What type of environment do you like best.
I like working in teams because there is a limit to what I can do, but the possibilities are endless if i work in a team.
As I consider myself very productive and cooperative while working with my colleagues.
Therefore, having the type of working environment with an open communication with not only my boss and juniors is the best for me.
Q4, Explain how you overcome a major obstacle.
I have two reasons I was able to overcome a major obstacle before.
The first reason is an entity of colleagues.
I worked as a nurse in ICU (intensive care unit).
The tasks there were taking care of patients who were in serious condition and a mental care of the patient’s family.
Additionally we collaborated with other professionals such as doctors to decide treatment plans.
These weren’t a piece of cake rather tough jobs that made me to self-doubt my capacity and skills.
However, Me and my colleagues encouraged each other because we can understand each other’s feelings because we have the same experience.
The second reason is that I like a challenge.
I had more opportunities to be in charge of these tough jobs than other nurses.
By increasing the opportunities, I was recognized by senior nurses.
It gave me a lot of confidence.
I came to understand the enjoyment of work since my second year as a nurse.
Q5, Where do you see yourself five years from now.
In five years time, I could see myself a successful in your healthcare and service business department.
I will work while making use of my experience that I worked as a nurse and volunteer activity in India and visiting to see medical system in Cuba and so on.
Q6, Why do you want to leave your current job?
As much as I wanted to keep my previous job, that has brought a lot of unforgettable memories, but I felt strongly I want to be a person who can contribute not only to Japanese but also to people all over the world, regardless of culture or religion.
My previous job was to mainly support Japanese children and mothers living in Singapore.
I don’t want to miss the opportunity to work with international people in Singapore, which is full of international colors.
So I decided to leave my previous job to take up the challenge.
