It takes a lot of courage for someone to pick up their things and put their life on hold to go experience another country for a month. Although the goal of it is to improve personally and professionally, it can be challenging to fully immerse yourself in a culture that you are not used to. Especially, since Japanese and American culture are quite different.
Going global means different things to different people. Although Always Hired is currently not capable of supporting international students, we enjoy interacting with people from all over the world. Our own CEO, Gabriel Moncayo, is a first generation American as his parents migrated here from South America. So when we heard that there was an opportunity to have an intern from Japan join us for a month, we jumped all over it.
We would like to formally welcome our Japanese intern, Seiya Ito. Below is a quick Q&A to help you learn a little more about him!

A: Cloud Engineer for Hitachi ltd.
Q: What do you want to accomplish in your internship with us?
A: I want to be comfortable going through all my tasks in English. I want to gain some confidence in using the language in a professional setting from this experience.
