Speaking

These days I have several interviews. Tomorrow I will go to Beijing, there are two companies contacted me for interview. The job content really interests me. I bought the ticket to Beijing at 9 am tomorrow. I will get back on Sunday, I hope can get a job which can use English. Especially foreign enterprises, they use different financial software like SAP, they prepare English financial statement. I want to learn more about financial experience and English simultaneously.

I don’t go to a lot of interviews in Shanghai, just 4-5 company interviews. The job is not really suitable for me, so I extend the range and I’m looking for a job in Beijing. I just go to the interview to learn the job content, if it’s really suitable for me, maybe I can work there for one or two years. If my boyfriend is also looking for job, maybe he can also looking for his job in Beijing. This year’s economic situation, I think to find a appropriate job is not easy.

I hope the job will match my ability, I can learn more. The salary should increase on my former standard, I hope my new company is promising company in medical industry technology industry. I hope they have the research and development. Also it needs to use English. I think most of the job is 8 hours one day. Most I really pay attention to is I hope the job have opportunity to improve myself. That’s my ideal job. When I find my job, I can rent an apartment near the company.
