It would be best to enter a good company from the start, but you can also develop your career while working at a decent position as you wait for a good opportunity.
Please tell us about your job.
I have been conducting strategic planning with regard to issues related to energy and petrochemicals at SK Gas. Since our company has ventured in the PDH business, I keep a close eye on business trends related to PDH. My work is important, difficult and complicated as the world’s energy and petrochemical markets are so closely related that if one thing occurs in a certain area it can quickly affect other areas.
Can you tell us about an interesting episode in the workplace?
The project I am currently working on is interesting and worthwhile. Currently, I am looking at the PDH Downstream industry and I am learning a lot from by having discussions with many people, developing theories, and shaping results. I especially enjoy having the precious opportunity to meet with experts from the energy and petrochemicals sectors and holding discussions with them.
What made you choose SK Gas?
I think SK Gas is the leader in a very stable business area. Unlike other industries where there is extreme competition, large sales and profits, SK Gas makes steady profits while being in a secure position in the LPG business sector. Therefore, I expect that making such steady profits can help secure our future and help us implement future strategies.
What are the strong points of SK Gas that you sense while working for the company?
The company is developing in a very dynamic manner and we have to perform a wide range of work tasks as the number of employees is relatively small. As a result, we learn a lot through being involved in many aspects of work and I think it is a very strong point.
Do you have any useful tips for those who want to join SK Gas?
I worked for an electronic component company for about 2 years before I entered SK Gas. It would be best to enter a good company from the beginning, but you can also build your career while working at a decent position as you wait for a good opportunity. In my case, the experience of working at the electronic component company broadened my perspective of the market.
What is your future vision?
For now, I am focusing on desirable types of business development and monitoring strategies related to energy and petrochemicals. Afterwards, I want to contribute to the company by working in a the field, based on my study of strategies related to energy and petrochemicals. Personally, I would like to study the LPG and petrochemical market more thoroughly and become a specialist in the energy and petrochemical market.
