Self-introduction / PR(sample)
I was born in Beijing, China. I was interested in Japan when I watched Japanese animation, Doraemon, and I wanted to know more about Japan. At that time, I strongly felt that I really wanted to see Japan with my own eyes, so I decided to study abroad. I entered ◯ ◯ Japanese Language School in July 2010 and studied Japanese for 2 years. After that, I entered ◯◯ college (vocational school) and graduated in March 2016. I wanted to do a job that can bridge between Japan and China, so I studied Japanese hard at school and also participated in a speech contest.
I studied accounting at the university (vocational school), and passed the Nissho Bookkeeping 1st grade examination in June 2015. In addition, although I have passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 1, I keep on improving my language skills by reading business-related books to prepare myself for a job.
I feel that it is fun to study, so I am always eager to learn everything. In addition to improving my knowledge, I got accustomed to Japanese rules and etiquettes when working part-time at restaurants, etc., allowing me to understand a little about Japanese society. Until now, I have never given up or stopped midway in my life, even in the face of hardships.
I would like to work as a professional accountant to contribute to the company, a job where I can maximally use the expertise of accounting learned at school, experience gained in part-time jobs, and my language ability (Japanese, English, and Chinese).
