(Japanese Only)From AlumniDIOT, YulClass of 2020Works at Google JapanExpand your horizons and develop your skills to nd what you want to do nextWhen I say I am working at Google people often look at me as if I were a genius. The truth is I was a student with average grades from elementary school to Junior High and had a GPA of 2.5 at university, which is not even close to the Dean’s list. In my view, in order to achieve your highest career goal, the 4 years you spend at university should be used to expand your horizons by developing a sense of curiosity and a set of skills rather than to aim at becoming an academic genius. Indeed, at SILS I chose elds of studies I was not familiar with, which led me to unexpected discoveries and enabled me to foster a challenging mindset for myself. At the same time, I did several internships thus improving my understanding of the work environment. Those experiences have not only allowed me to acquire a position in the company of my dreams, but have also given me some precious skills to adapt to a variety of situations. Because of the actual pandemic, I have not set foot in the ofce yet since my 1st day. But after 3 months of virtual training where I learned theories of “know how”, I am currently consulting more than 100 companies in various elds. Every day, I need to update my knowledge to cope with new situations, and without the physical presence of my team members it can get very challenging. However, I feel that the skills I acquired during my 4 years at SILS prepared me well to overcome this kind of challenge. The importance of exibility and adaptability is growing in this fast changing world. Thus, I would say that whatever the career you are aiming for, it is crucial to be curious of new things and accumulate different kinds of experiences.16
