Writing

I work in the office every Monday and Tuesday, and during the two days I am very busy. I have a conference call with my seven sales executive that talk about the sales of the last week at 11 am every Monday, then in the afternoon I need to make a PPT for the tomorrow meeting with my boss. I have a video conference with Hong Kong and Beijing at 10:30 am Every Tuesday, it’s mainly for the 5 area sales manager to report the sales situation of our own area to our boss, and we need to analyze the reasons for the current uptick and downtick in sales, as well as the follow-up work plan and forecast for this month. I should do the interview work together with my HR colleague every Tuesday afternoon. During the two days, I also need to respond to emails from various departments and make phone calls to follow up with my sales executives,and dealing with all kinds of problems. So I prefer working in a mall to working in an office.
