Sony has opened up new world that used to be unknown to me
I was born in Poland, and my first contact with Sony came when I was a child and my father brought a Walkman® back from Japan, where he was working. I remember listening over and over to an album by Whitney Houston, the only cassette tape I owned. I came to live in Japan around the time I was in my second year in elementary school, and attended Japanese school through high school. I then went to Edinburgh University in Scotland, but in my third year there, I returned to Japan as an exchange student. In Japan, university students start looking for jobs in their third year of the standard four-year course, and I decided to apply to Sony for a job after friends I had made at the time suggested that it looked like an interesting company.
When I actually attended the interviews, I was astonished at how friendly the interviewers were. The interviews also gave me the impression that the atmosphere at Sony promised it would be an interesting workplace. I received an informal job offer as a result of the interview, but I honestly had a difficult time making up my mind because I also had the choice of working in Poland, my home country, and in the UK, where I was studying. In the end, I made my decision because I believed Sony, which manufactures so many products, would give me the chance to test my potential while bringing me into touch with a world that I had not yet known.
