due to my communication skill ;(
English learner at PINES International Academy in Baguio, Philippines (from 2018-02-19 to 2018-03-16)
After Baguio City, I stayed in Manila, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Singapore and Hanoi.
I applied for job as senior software engineer in Hong Kong and Singapore, because I had to get visa sponsorship.
I had phone screenings, technical checks at hackerrank.com and onsite interviews several times.
Most efficient feedback after half-day interviews:
- Communication Issue – It is difficult to discuss deeply technical issue
- Mentoring – It is difficult to share your technical knowledge to the juniors
I understand these are my weakest skills. I attended a weekly stand up meeting about technical issues, but I understood one-tenth. One reason was that I didn’t understand company “internal” words, and the other reason was that I didn’t understand “natural” speed of English sometimes.
I have a plan to go to English school again, because if I join Japanese company then I have to use English at work.
