- ㆍName : Kim Min-seon
- ㆍEntrance : January 2013
I think SK Gas was impressed with my passion to work in the global business area and by my confidence and determination to succeed.
Please tell us about your job.
I am a member of the Supply-Demand Operation Team in the Global Business Division.
The Supply-Demand Operation Team is responsible for the handling of import cargo, analysis of oil prices and LPG market conditions, and development of new trading schemes.
I have the role of providing LPG market intelligence in a timely manner to support the making of correct trading decisions.
Can you tell us about an interesting episode in the workplace?
SK Gas is providing its employees with opportunities to improve not only their business knowledge and skills but is also encouraging our interest in the liberal arts through lectures and classical music performances.
While all the lectures were very interesting, I particularly remember the lecture by Dr. Kang Shin-ju who played a practical joke by calling me, a new hire, to the stage to give me a pep talk.
I was embarrassed, but my colleagues encouraged me with their smiles. I really felt the warmth of SK Gas.
What made you choose SK Gas?
SK Gas is the proud leader of the LPG industry in Korea, but we are not complacent about our status and continue to pursue growth through business diversification and overseas business development. I chose SK Gas because of the company’s potential for growth and the opportunities it offers me to develop and display my competency.
What are the strong points of SK Gas that you can sense while working for the company?
Above all, it is the family like environment. As the company is relatively small, I know most of the employees. That helps to enhance cooperation and increases mutual consideration.
Do you have any useful tips for those who want to join SK Gas?
Although I majored chemical engineering at school, I realized the field was not for me after a brief experience as an engineer. So I began searching for another line of work. During the interview process, I was challenged as to why I did not want to seek a position related to my major . I think SK Gas was impressed by my passion to work in the field of global business and by my confidence and determination to succeed. I recommend people to confidently display their passion for what they want to do.
What is your future vision?
I want to experience various roles and become a global LPG business professional. I plan to develop my competency day after day so that I will gain in-depth knowledge about the LPG business and insight about the global trading markets so that I may contribute to the company’s global growth.
