앞으로 입사할 미래의 팀워들에게 하고 싶은말은?
It’s not easy to handle secondary equipment biz especially after internet era, many info. are disclosed in website no matter it’s true or not. You will need to clarify just in case and pay more attention on market trend in the world, it’s really tough in the beginning. Speed is quite critical to work crucially in this working style.
Besides integrity is necessary for everyone and patience is also important mindset.
Have you ever been outside your comfort zone?
Yes I was ever dispatched to Shanghai around 9 years ago, my mission was to develop new biz in LED industry in China market and there was no other resource and customer network. Living in Shanghai was really impressed me, however it was not easy even I am a Taiwanese. Really felt alone without colleague and friend in the beginning.
Travel was a good way to learn about different culture or rule and explore new biz in other provinces like Hunan, Hubei and Jiangxi. Those customers are located in country side, so transportation was very tough at that time. Even it’s not my comfort zone, finally I still gained biz after my effort. It was very good experience in my life and I will really hope to visit those places by personal trip.
