5. Is there something that you can say “this is the best part being Buzzvillians”?
My team leader that I mentioned earlier is a French guy and his name is Max. In order to talk to him, I have to speak English, but in my whole life, the only English sentence that I know is that “My name is ~ and nice to meet you.” So, it was very hard for me to talk to him at first. Besides, I have been scared of speaking in English. So, I did not study English very much. (A lot of my acquaintances told me that they never imagined that I would study English.)
Max is a very warm-hearted and open minded person. Furthermore, sometimes his meticulousness and delicacy as a French guy makes me really surprised. In fact, when I speak to him, I do not really feel comfortable as much as I communicate in Korean. Nevertheless, as Max sincerely takes care of me, I was able to deeply study on UI / UX during the off-hours, and I could be deeply interested in the field of design with more enthusiasm.
The introduction was a long story. For the reasons above, I would like to say that the great advantage of working at Buzzvil is that we can have the opportunity to work with people from various countries around the world and, we can also study and learn Second Language. (Recently, a new UI / UX designer from Vietnam named Derek joined our team. So, currently, my design team has four designers who are from all different countries including France, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea.)
I think that another advantage of working at Buzzvil is the ‘corporate culture with opportunities’ that enables the employees to challenge various tasks. It is not only limited to fulfilling one’s duties. However, based on doing one’s job, it means that I can choose the work that I want to do among the various tasks and I can try to complete it myself. As such, I could have strong responsibility for my job and I could have a lot of burden for it, but I think it’s great that I can challenge it myself.
There are so many passionate people with and diversity in Buzzvil. They are surely smart and they do their jobs very well. So, I often feel that I should be humble and I need to improve myself. I am inspired by these Buzzvillians a lot, but, even if I try hard being inspired by them, sometimes I feel depressed and I get sick and tired of my jobs. Sometimes I get skeptical about why I have to work and try so hard. in addition, since I have to set up my own business scope and I have to work on my own, I do not feel like I’m being cared for by someone and I do not have a strong sense of belonging to my company.
It is not easy to survive at Buzzvil, which regards the self-leader who autonomously performs his duties as the ideal employee. However, I think it will be a valuable experience for me.
