Mr. K started his career as a bureaucrat in Kasumigaseki a year ago.
I heard the true intention of the 24-year-old about what he thinks now that he actually worked in the place he admired for a year and how he will work in the future.
The reason I aimed to become a bureaucrat was to fall in love at a glance
In April 2019, Mr. K became a new bureaucrat on a sunny day. His working environment seems to be harsh, but he puts all his energy into his work and personal life, and he is living a fulfilling life.
How did Mr. K get this job?
"The opportunity was a tour that I participated in when I was in the first year of college. At that time, I saw the people working here and was convinced that I would be here in a few years.
It's very strange, but the image of working here suddenly came to my mind. It's a "fateful encounter".
I fell in love at first sight. "
At that time, did you learn something that would lead to your current job at university?
"Originally I liked literature, but when I studied economics in high school, I was impressed by the fact that I could express all the mechanisms of the world in theory.
It's interesting that everything I thought was moving according to my own will was moving according to the theory of economics.
So I majored in economics at university. As a result, there are some parts that lead to my current job. "
By challenging not only what I like but also economics, I gained new learning, and it seems that it became a great source of food for the present.
It may seem coincidental that she came across this job, but she may have been the result of her attitude to look at new things.
Isn't it painful even with hard work?
"Currently, I belong to a room that looks like a window in the ministry. I work with many people in the ministry, but everyone is really good for me as a newcomer.
That's why I want those people to work comfortably, which is the most motivating factor.
I work everywhere, so I don't look tired and I'm struggling not to pull my legs. "
However, depending on the time of year, I may not be able to go home. Will my heart break when such hard work continues?
"The fate I felt on the first tour is still the same, so I spend my days thinking that it's good or bad. I work every day with a breathtaking feeling (laughs).
However, I've been feeling some challenges lately.
Information is updated every few hours, and you can see that the world is moving at a tremendous pace, so if you can not catch it, it will be left behind.
Originally, I was the type to think about things, but I am conscious of actively getting the latest information so that I can catch up with this sense of speed. "
There is something I want to value more than status and honor
Although he is busy every day, Mr. K has an active side, such as going on a bullet trip if he has time on the weekend.
We asked her about her future life plan as she spends such fulfilling days.
"I find my work worthwhile, and I am blessed with the people I work with, so I would like to continue to do my best.
However, I want to change the way I work little by little (laughs).
If it is "position and honor" that you can get by working hard enough to collapse, it is not an ideal way of working.
If you can't take care of your work-life balance, you'll probably be too busy to take care of your loved ones. Even when I have a family someday, I want to live a well-balanced life.
That is why I would like to continue to have no regrets without forgetting to thank and consider the people around me. "
Even in the harsh environment of ministries, Mr. K keeps a bright smile.
While devoting all her energy to her work, she talked about her strong desire to "value balance" with an eye on her future.
Now that her work style reforms are underway, the way of thinking and power of generations like her may move the times.
