The Welsh Viewpoint on Jobs

There are a lot of mountains in Wales. At one time, Wales prospered as a country of coal mines. In the 19th century, Wales began to expand its financial industry, and it flourished, too.

So, Welsh people began thinking highly of their own job. Today, I heard young Welsh people have a strong sense of getting a good job.

I never knew that there are many Japanese companies in Wales; for example, Toyota, Sony, Hitachi, etc. The Welsh plan of inviting Japanese companies succeeded.

There are no less than 90 Japanese companies in the UK, and among them, more than 40 companies are in Wales! As a Japanese, I am glad to hear that. :)

By the way, as I said before, young Welsh people have a strong sense of getting a good job. So I can say they have a vision for their career from early on.

On the other hand, I think most Japanese university students tend to be fervent only when they face job hunting activities, which in Japanese is called "shukatsu." They look very frantic! They suddenly start to be serious in front of companies. That's too late!

I don't think it is good for us to be desperate only at that time. I am bored to see it, and maybe it looks very curious to foreigners. But I have to start job-hunting this year. I believe in these expressions: "Take it easy!" and "It's a piece of cake!"
