Factory Visit

During the visit, they presented about hiring international students. They said:

1. There is no disctinction between Japanese students and international students
2. The salary and chance for promotion is the same.
3. What they expect from Int stu is their language ability(Native language, English). (to become the bridge of Japanese and International world)
4. No limit in age and nationality.
5. Applicants should be able to communicate in Japanese.
6. Int stu will be trained in Japan for several years before they go abroad.
7. Company will support sorts of administative procedures. (Visa, Permanent stay...)
8. There are more merits in hiring Int stu more than dismerit.

Decision Support Methods

When it's time to do an important decision. I'm really afraid of choosing the wrong way. I keep thinking and thinking but I cant reach the decision. I know now, the problem is there are too many elements I cant process all. So, I'll write them down on a paper and use decision support methods like:

Pros and Cons Analysis
Kepner-Tregoe(K-T) Decision Analysis
Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)
Multi-Attribute Utility Theory(MAUT)
Cost-Benifit Analysis (CBA)
Custom Tailored Tools
