Posted June 25, 2018 06:01:10 A little over a year ago, I was working in a factory in the northern Chinese city of Wuhan when I got the first email from an intern at the company.
He had just joined, and the job required that he stay for two weeks and collect data.
He sent me the information he had gathered in the previous few months, but the only thing he told me was: “Please don’t work.”
I was flabbergasted, but then I thought, this guy must have really learned something from my experience.
I could hardly believe that I had stumbled into an internship program that was designed to make me forget what it was like to work.
In the past, I had felt insecure and uncomfortable during the internship period.
My workday was so busy that I could not sleep.
I had to spend most of my free time on the computer, doing tasks that made me uncomfortable.
But in the past few years, I realised that this was normal and not a big deal.
As a woman, I felt so intimidated.
When I got my first job, I worked for an engineering company, and during my first two weeks, I found it extremely difficult to talk to other women in the company, despite their seniority.
I was also often in awe of the amount of attention I received from the other male workers, which made me feel like a weirdo, especially when I started to realise that they had also been in my shoes.
When I started my job at the factory, I knew that it was different.
I’d been given a job that I would have to learn to love and respect, and I was learning the ins and outs of working in the factory.
The only other people I could talk to were my colleagues and co-workers.
The whole experience was very different.
The first few weeks were a little awkward, but it was the beginning of a lot of work.
I learnt to be open and honest, and this was something that had been important to me since I was a little girl.
I learned how to work with others, and how to take a problem and work together to solve it.
I realised that I was becoming very good at my job.
But I didn’t want to do it forever.
After a few weeks, the feeling of being at a disadvantage changed to being a huge advantage.
I didn-t want to be a burden on my boss.
I was able to stay calm and focused, because I had been trained to do that.
But the more I worked, the more anxious I became.
And I realised I had not learned to work from the inside out, but from the outside in.
I started working with a different team each week, which I felt more comfortable with, and also because I knew how much I was expected to contribute.
I learned how important it is to be transparent about what you do, how you think, and where you come from.
I also learnt how important being respectful is.
I thought about what my work ethic would be if I were given a second job and had to constantly adjust to the demands of a new culture, and what my values would be.
I also realised that the only way I could make a living was by doing good work.
This is important to know, because if I can’t do good work, I can never be a great worker.
As an intern, I wanted to learn about the way companies work.
But instead of learning how to be respectful, I became a little anxious, because the pressure to do the right thing had started to get to me.
I became stressed, and when I felt bad about my work, my emotions turned into a little depression.
I realised this was because I was not making the right decisions.
The second year of my internship, I went back to the factory again, but this time I was invited to join the engineering team.
I went into a team meeting and said that I needed to go back to work, and it was decided that I wouldn’t be in the engineering group.
It was a tough decision, because working in engineering meant that I also had to stay at the office all the time.
But the hardest part of the experience was not getting to work at all.
I couldn’t even go to the bathroom.
I felt sick for a few days, but that was because of the stress of not being able to do my job properly.
After that, I tried to think about why I had decided to do this internship.
I found myself thinking about what I would do if I was an engineer and I got a second chance at my dream job.
And then I realised: I don’t have to do a bad job if I don-t like it.
I can do anything.
I am a machine.
This internship really helped me think about how I would behave if I had a second career.
I decided to keep going because I really wanted to be involved in the future
