Speaking

what kind of people do you not like?
I don’t like the people who don’t treat you with their true heart. I don’t like people who don’t think others. If you have a business trip with your co-worker, maybe we should share dinner together, then I don’t like to eat spicy food or some special food, then someone like to eat spicy. I think we should choose some restaurants which has diverse food. When I work for a Japanese company, some of the colleague include me don’t know Japanese. When we have a meeting, the Japanese always say something in Japanese, maybe they don’t want Chinese know what they’re saying. But some of the Chinese colleague know what they are saying. They are always many gossips.

I didn’t find another job because the last job that I have been , it a small company which is just begin. I worked there for 3 months, I think it is not suitable for me because my previous working experience were all in the larger and organized companies. I think there are many different between this two kinds of companies, such as the way of management and the cross-function communication. I should report to the founder of the company, we have many same opinion on the brand communication. When we got into the project detail, I think the way that she lead the team and the cross function communication is not same as my previous company. I can’t continue to do the project because the founder don’t give you clear budget or direction. Even if I give them a plan, they don’t give me any confirmation. The teams in the company all 90’s, and they just ask them to do it, and don’t tell them why and where the company will go, what the strategy or key points. When I try to get information, they don’t have the answer.

When I was in Sketches, I worked for e-commerce market, It’s very busy, I’m not get the balance of work and life. Before Sketches, I did a lot of brand communication projects, so I want to back to the area. The small company that I’m interested in is their brand positioning, and their brand image. I also talked with their founder, I think we have the same view of the brand and also I have some ideas told her I can do well in their brand communication.

Revised

I don’t like the people who don’t treat you with their true heart. I don’t like people who don’t think for others. If I have a business trip with my co-worker, maybe we could share/have dinner together, then I don’t like to eat spicy food or some special food, but someone else likes to eat spicy food. I think we should choose some restaurants that have diverse food. When I worked for a Japanese company, some of the colleague including me didn’t know Japanese. When we had a meeting, the Japanese people always talked in Japanese, maybe they didn’t want Chinese people to know what they’re saying. But some of the Chinese colleagues knew what they were saying. They were always many gossips/ rumors. 

I didn’t look for another job because the last job that I worked for was a small company which is just started. I worked there for 3 months, I think it is not suitable for me because my previous working experiences were all in the larger and organized companies. I think there are many differences between these two kinds of companies, such as the way of management and the cross-function communication. I should report to the founder of the company, we have share many opinions on the brand communication. When we got into the project details, I think the way that she led the team and the cross function communication was not same as my previous company/as I expected. I can’t continue to do the project because the founder didn’t give me a clear budget or direction. Even if I give them a plan, they don’t give me any confirmation. The teams in the company are all young people born in the 1990’s, and they just ask them to do it without telling them why and where the company will go,nor what the strategy and key points. When I try to get information, they don’t have the answer.

When I was in Sketches, I worked for e-commerce market, It was very busy, I couldn’t maintain the balance of work and life. Before Sketches, I did a lot of brand communication projects, so I wanted to back to the industry. I was interested in the small company for their brand positioning, and their brand image. I also talked with their founder, I think we have/share the same view of the brand and also I had some ideas and told her that I would do well in their brand communication.
