Start over

Counting the days ,I’ve been exactly right in this new company for two months .

I had said to myself ,also to others that I would never come back to this city again .However ,after something really tough happened to me ,I am back here ,back to Dongguan city again .I want to say thank you to my friend ,this is the best thing he did for me .He is the one always helps me and asks for nothing in return .Compared to the difficulty 2 years ago ,things were harder for me ,and I almost gave up myself .It was him who cheered me up ,and introduced me a new job .And 2 months past ,even though I am still not good at the work at present , I totally love it ,enjoy it ,and I would like to devote all my life into it .

I am the only foreign trade sales person in charge of ,a popular cross-border e-commerce platform founded by Jack Ma .Finally ,I am not only a consumer purchasing goods on it ,I am also a supplier showing and selling products on it , At the beginning ,I need to display all our products and makes it looks like a real shop .Then ,I must learn how to design the minisite ,I had to admit that I did not do well in designing ,or rather ,I have no sense of picture processing or webpage making .As you could imagine how odd the webpage would be . No sense of aesthetic except comply with online shop rules, the platform seems meaningless. Later ,with more and more types of products displayed on the minisite ,I was more proficient to handle the site .There are at least several visitors everyday in the end .This is a process of personal growth and experience acquisition ,for me it is really precious .

I am also the only woman in marketing department , I guess that’s why I feel happy in everyday’s work .Of course ,that is a far-fetched reason .Now ,I summarize the following reasons :

First of all ,this is the first time I worked in a sales job .I had a prejudice against sales work before ,even though my elder brother has already achieved in this field ,I am still not interested in it .In my opinion ,sales is like a scram ,as long as you can say any fine rhetoric ,you will be easily make an achievement .Not until I become one of them and have to deal with every single thing myself ,I got to know that is not a piece of cake .There one must acquaint the product knowledge as well as the applications of each product .The market competition is getting more and more intense nowadays ,and salesman also becomes more and more like a technical expert .Curious about the products and their main functions, I don’t feel like to leave work every day .

Secondly ,I don’t know what will happened to me everyday !Without repetitive work ,everyday is new to me .I have been followed up a client from Belarus for days .He finally asked me to send him some samples ,as the freight is costly ,I asked him to pay for that .He did that ,and all prepared .However ,ways of delivery are not easy .I have to send to Urumqi city and transfer there .I am afraid that he’ll doubt the authenticity and won’t  believe me ,after all we are far away ,who can guarantee the money safety ?I sent him the tracking number which was only valid in China ,and said that I knew he doesn’t understand Chinese even a little bit ,and this just for his reference .He said ,I trust you ,and don’t worry ,tell me when you ready !I was so touched at that moment .All I had done was not in vain . Holding on ,maybe next second you will get a big surprise !

Last but not least ,I become what I want to be .From pessimism to optimism ,it is not a easy thing .But I think it will be the same awe-inspiring wonder as the metamorphosis of butterflies someday !Like I once said it is just starting ,not over .But yeah ,it will start over !
