This working experience has been different from the rest. It’s not as smooth sailing as my previous stay but I do gain some insight.
- It’s important to understand one’s job scope and the culture of the department/company before signing on the dotted line.
- I hate being unproductive. I hit many brick walls while on the job this time as I am not trained in the tasks that I am being assigned to. I know I should not always work within my comfort zone, but there is this very high inertia for my to go attempt do improve my theoretical knowledge on communications engineering.
- I get bored very easily. I should look for jobs that can give me variety. Long projects kills my interest easily.
- It’s sadly important to not offend any secretary. All secretaries coalesce together to form one
gossipinformation exchanging body. In such, any urban story from one department gets around the company real quickly. They are so powerful that they are assigned a Administrative Professionals’ Day.
Luckily I am currently working in an engineering department. Generally, I believe all engineers work to solve problems, and therefore there has been minimal politics compared to other working environments. How to win at office politics? Sigh~ Another part of growing
up old is in coming…
