I like my job because it can bring me some challenges and make me grow up quickly, and I can learn many different skills from each project. I have too much workload so I always work too late until 12 o’clock and I got a sick since I work too late for a week. I remember I write a words in my report – this policy will lead hospital to control the cost which bring challenges to our product.
