If you want breadth of experience and
an enriching career, choose the
Mizuho Open Course
The Mizuho Open Course is designed to groom management-capable individuals that are well-equipped to serve in a broad range of areas across the financial group. Candidates start their career in a domestic branch as a Relationship Manager (RM), and are exposed to a wide range of banking activities from teller services to product sales to project coordination. With the support of experienced RMs and the privilege to work across functions, candidates will build a broad-based foundation that will act as a launchpad to a rich and fulfilling career that includes job rotations across different departments in the company. Although my own journey has been full of challenges and sometimes painful, I have personally found it to be fulfilling. My colleagues have been extremely supportive in my learning and I have learned that a career in banking is not just about loans and transaction services, but about catering to customers’ unique needs and truly tailoring our solutions to serve them best.

Work always challenging!
I entered Mizuho Financial Group in 2016. Mizuho gives me an impression of being flexible that relevant trainings are given to us according to our abilities. Therefore, even students without financial knowledge like me can also work smoothly in Mizuho. This is one of the attractive points of this program. Moreover, being assigned to a main branch in Japan makes my work more meaningful. In my branch, I have many opportunities to solve problems of customers from different countries with my language advantages. This is encouraging that I feel my importance in the branch and the company as an international employee. To become a professional in the financial sector, I am now acquiring expert knowledge through trainings and obtaining different licences. Since all these tasks are in Japanese, they are demanding but I also find them challenging. I am sure these challenging jobs will push me forward in the future.
Going global
I can trace my decision to pursue employment at Mizuho to a conversation with an older high school schoolmate whom I really respect. My schoolmate, who entered the working world just one year ahead of me, told me: "If you want to be a global—not just Korean—businessman, why not try working in another country?" Instilled with the dream to "go global", I was immediately attracted to the prospect of Mizuho's Open Course—an employment program that offers the opportunity to work in many different business roles at offices in 40 countries. So, I applied to work at Mizuho Financial Group. If you are someone like me—with a dream of working on the global stage and experiencing many different sides of business—I would absolutely encourage you to apply for Mizuho's Open Course program.
