Tomiko Yazawa

Born in Tokyo, Tomiko Yazawa specializes in IT engineer recruiting, human resources consulting, staff training, and staffing.
Having been certified as an MOT (Microsoft Official Trainer), Tomiko became active as a self-employed instructor in the field of computer technology while still in Japan. With the computer industry booming in the early 1990's, her clients comprised a number of major companies. In 1996, she became affiliated with a well-known Japanese construction company, the Kashima Group, and thereafter established "ACT Win College," the first computer instructor training school in Tokyo. Developing effective curricula and procedures, she made the school so famous that it often drew more than double the applicants of its enrollment capacity. The passing rate of those students who took the MOT exam amounted to nearly 100 percent at the school, which produced many excellent instructors.

In 1998 Tomiko left the school and went to Dallas, Texas, the following year. After studying English as a second language for a year, she entered Richland College of the Dallas County Community Colleges, where she majored in Computer Information Technology and expanded her knowledge in the IT area. She received her Associate degree in May 2001.

In August 2001, Tomiko moved to New York City. Soon afterwards, living in a neighborhood near the financial district, she was forced to deal with the 9/11 tragedy firsthand. While she was considering whether to permanently return to Japan, she was offered a position as a recruiter by a Japanese staffing company in New York. Utilizing her past experience she forged ahead in her career as a recruiter specific to the IT field.

Tomiko co-founded Synetre with her partner in December 2002. Currently, dealing with a major manufacturer as her principle client, she renders human resources management services that specifically involve IT engineer recruitment. Because she has developed strong ties with more than a hundred IT-related agencies, she is able to effectively dispatch many skilled engineers to her client in a timely manner.

Tomiko actively participates in the Business Women's Community of the Japanese American Association. She plays an important role as a director of the organization where she is involved in wide range of networking and social action programs in New York.


"I've never met anyone as talented and energetic as Ms. Yazawa.

Ms. Yazawa is my former computer instructor, and it is to her I currently owe my competence on my personal computer.

I started learning how to use computers from her 10 years ago when I had just turned 70 and was about to retire. In those days, not very many elderly people would dare to learn computers, and therefore, I was often referred to as a "cool" old man who was interested in computers.

Ms. Yazawa would visit me twice a week in order to give me computer instruction, something I knew virtually nothing about. I believe it must have been very frustrating for her to deal with such an old man like me. Ms. Yazawa, however, would never show the slightest annoyance. Instead, she, taught me with patience and great care. My wife and I would always look forward to the day of her lesson, at the end of which we would have dinner together and enjoy casual conversation for a long time.

I believed then that Ms. Yazawa, a person full of talent, would be able to meet with success even in New York. In fact, she is doing far better than I imagined. I'm very proud of her going to New York and accomplishing so much there.

I always feel grateful and extremely fortunate that I had Ms. Yazawa as my instructor. I wish her every success in her future endeavors."
