If you think your credentials are not as good as your competitors, do not become frustrated; instead, believe in yourself and have confidence in your abilities when you are looking for a job.
Please tell us about your job.
I am now working in the Auto gas Sales Team which conducts LPG distribution business in Korea.
LPG distribution business can be largely divided into butane for cars and propane for homes, and I am selling butane to dealers. Our team is the core of the LPG business in Korea and plays the role of a control tower for the overall business of more than 500 butane dealers nationwide.
Can you tell us about an interesting episode in the workplace?
The most memorable episode for me was the experience of hosting an event named Leaders Forum which gave me an opportunity to meet customers face to face. The Leaders Forum is an annual event held to share news and important information with our partners in the LPG business. As a new employee I was lucky enough to participate in hosting this large event. It was a good opportunity for me to communicate with many people who are working hard in the industry and add to my personal knowledge.
What made you choose SK Gas?
It may sound like I am exaggerating, but I thought I could kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. SK Gas is a very stable company which continues to be as profitable as any other company in Korea. At the same time, the company is not complacent about its present status and keeps diversifying in different areas in order to sustain good growth potential. That is why I chose SK Gas.
What are the strong points of SK Gas that you can sense while working for the company?
I haven’t worked for other companies, but I think at this company I can experience a wide range of work in a short period of time as our company is relatively small. I have a lot of responsibilities, but I think this can be a good opportunity to develop my abilities.
Do you have any useful tips for those who want to join SK Gas?
I think self-confidence is the most important thing. Working for a company may be much more difficult than you think. I, too, am facing various challenges every day. Thus, what is as important as so-called “credentials” is to think that “I am a person who can do my best with confidence in any circumstances.” I dare say that all my senior colleagues in the company think the same way. Therefore, if you think your credentials are not as good as your competitors for certain reasons, do not get frustrated but have more confidence in yourself when you are looking for a job.
What is your future vision?
Having worked here for a while, I personally think it is important to have a feeling of belonging in one’s field. My vision is to make people think of me when they talk about a certain field of work by making continuous effort to distinguish myself in terms of both business knowledge and actual working achievements. I believe that if I can become distinguished in my field, I will be able to become a reputed representative of the company.
