We know there are many more defining moments to come; for you and for Hitachi. Tell us about an important decision, or an event, that defined your career path.
Starting my 6th year at HDS this year. Until HDS, I hadn't stayed with one company for that long since working my way through college.
People tend to stay at HDS. I've been here 13 years! Thanks for your response, Jeff Lundberg . It's difficult to pick just one defining moment. My defining moment at HDS was both humbling and yet feels somehow self-indulgent to mention. I was presented the Hitachi Spirit award for Kaitakusha-seishin (Pioneering Spirit) by Jack Domme. I'd say that was a defining moment for sure!
My career has been defined by my international experiences. At the beginning of my career I was given the opportunity to present a model I developed to some colleagues in Japan. I had never traveled before overseas and was completely scared to the point of basically trying to cancel the trip. But I got up the courage to go and never looked back. The experience was amazing, the people were amazing and it motivated me to become more global. I eventually had the opportunity to work and live overseas in EMEA, learn a new language and culture and become an EU citizen. This experience has defined my ability to understand, collaborate and thrive in multicultural situations.
I would definitely agree that was a defining moment and a turning point in your life. Great story!
I would say the defining moment for me was the realization that I finally do what I actually like to do. Kind of important, I would assume, and something that doesn't happen to everyone. Incidentally (or not?), it coincided with my starting at HDS about 6.5 years ago .
I liked the question, to explain "What" was the defining moment in my career, I should begin from "When" the most defining moment started!
And that happened from the moment when I decided to join Hitachi as an Intern. My instincts told me that joining HDS would never be a wrong decision, even though I had other options in hand.And that leads to the answer of "What" the most defining moment was.After 3 months of working as an Intern in Hitachi, I got the feedback that HDS would like to take me into their team after my Internship time.
Defining moment for me in life .. wait a sec ...lets start it with starting when i passed my college , i thought this is my moment to make my life and then i got chance of working with Hitachi and more than that i found people in Hitachi are like family, In family we discuss, enjoy and create solution for members. For me every moment with Hitachi's Family members is a defining moment.
In my teens I stared out on a spectrum zx81 followed by a commodore c64 and so on.
In those days IT wasn't like it is today. IT wasn't as present as it is now so I started my career as a car mechanic but always
keeping up to date with new technologies. Through a lucky coincidence I started programming punching machines.
A few years later I went back to school and got my certification for system administration.This was my big carrer jump.
Since then I have always worked with Hitachi storage systems. Seen everything starting with lightning storage up to the brand new GXX series.
A great journey and looking forward to what is next.
