Getting to know Persefoni: Meet Ryohei Kawai
1. And you may ask yourself, "Well... how did I get here?" (Tell us your journey?)
I got hired by Persefoni by a stroke of luck. After working for many years as a freelance interpreter for clients, including some big showbiz names, and for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics & Paralympics for the most recent 2 years, I was “almost” hired by one of the world’s biggest entertainment entities from the US. As I was about to email them back saying I would take the job offer, my phone suddenly pinged. That was from a recruiter whom I had never heard of before (I didn’t even register with that agency). He introduced me to Persefoni and suggested I apply. Which I did. I don’t precisely know why I did it, but I know I was highly intrigued by Persefoni’s website and was very interested in the CEO’s Japanese-sounding name. The fact that I’m pretty conscious of being sustainable and am vegan(flexitarian) myself contributed to my decision to apply as well. Anyway, I applied for Persefoni thinking I would probably get turned down, but went through two interviews. Both those two interviewers (who eventually became my teammate and my supervisor) made me feel at home in a way I had never felt before in my professional life. I thought that if they are so incredibly nice, the company must be great, too. And the upshot of those interviews was that I become the second hire of the Japan Team. I feel incredibly fortunate.
