First of all, people here have an affection for their own work and for other people. As a result, everyone can come together to complete tasks, and nothing is done in a half-hearted manner. Everyone actively helps to find answers to even trivial questions with a smile and without irritation. So, when you are faced with a big problem, you can overcome it without having to work on it alone, and I am able to be more excited to help people when I receive a question as well.
Second is the fact that the company places an incredible emphasis on communication. To be honest, it is very rare to find a company in Korea that does not have forced rules based on seniority and age, and Buzzvil is one of those rare companies. How many companies are there where you can proactively express your own opinion anytime, anywhere, and speak up when things do not seem right. I think the culture of Buzzvill actually attempts to respect the all opinions and this is a great motivation.
Last of all, the people here constantly strive for self-development. More synergy is created because the company actively supports them. As a result, I also have been motivated to consider ways to become an even more skilled individual. I feel a good amount of positive pressure every day.
6. Do you have a personal goal or dream? If so, how does your experience at Buzzvil help you?
It is to ‘become an entity that one can lean on’. This is because I feel the reason for my existence when somebody talks to me or relies on me when they are in trouble.
Personally, I want to become a person that people can come to when they are in trouble. At one time, I was satisfied with being ‘a warm person’, but recently I have changed my mind and want to exceed this goal to become a person that people can come to in times of need. In addition, my major goal in life is to open a business with products or services that people can lean on in times of happiness and in times of trouble. To be honest, I think that the things that give us strength in our lives are not things that are hugely impressive. Just like the fact that you have a lunch date with people you love can make you jump out of bed in the morning, or that hugging your warm cat at home can make all the fatigue from an all-night work session melt away. That is why I want to run a business that may not be a service that provides the opportunity to hit the jackpot or turn-around a life, but still can remain in your mind during the quiet moments of every life or in times when you are at your wits ends and tired. Because my interests lie with food, animals, and psychology, I would like to do something that intersects these subjects. I think I would be most happy if I could prepare the meal of the day surrounded by cats every morning.
First of all, I think that my job at Buzzvil fits well in relation to my dream. While it is very hard on me when I cannot solve their issues properly, I am always happy and thankful that I can reply with “Yes?” when someone calls my name. Moreover, even my current state is a great help in making me achieve becoming the person I would like to be.
Second, I am gaining a lot of insight that will be helpful for my business in the future. When I was younger, I dreamt of becoming a simple entrepreneur, but I changed my dream to becoming an enterpriser who can help even more people. Similarly, by experiencing the B2B business after joining Buzzvil, I was able to earnestly realize that even more expansion was possible by leveraging the experience and users that a partner company has. Therefore, when I am running my business in the future, I am certain that my experience at Buzzvil as a BD manager and my current job as a TAM will be invaluable when cooperating and communicating with other parties. In addition to this, I believe that the contemplation on what makes a good company, and my participation in deriving action items and executing those items that arise from such contemplation will also be a great aid.
Last of all, apart from everything else, the fact that I can laugh, talk, and work with really good people makes my life more enriching. Although there is not a single day that went by without an event, at the same time not a single day goes by where I do not laugh with joy. Although I do not know what my life at Buzzvil will be like in the future, I believe that the time, experience, and relationships I gained here will remain a precious part of my life.
