My working experience
My first job was started in the year of 2002, on Jan. 22nd in ***China Investment Company as an intern. After 6-month internship, I officially joined ***as a formal employee. In December of the same year, I was promoted to be Administration officer within administration department, and then I worked in administration department for the next over 2 years till February 2004. My main responsibilities in administration department were office facilities purchasing, stationery purchasing, local vendor selecting through public bidding, invitation letter issue for German colleagues, flight ticket booking, hotel booking and travel agent selecting etc.
Based on my excellent working performance in administration department, 2 outstanding yearly appraisals which were conducted by HR team, our HR manager provided me a chance to be transferred to Sales department. Therefore, I happily accepted the offer and started working as Sales Operation Officer (***import brand) since March 2004. The work in Sales department was really tough for me at the beginning because of the lack my knowledge about auto industry and sales operation management, but I believed I could control my work. After 2 months, I took over all my responsibilities in sales material update, ordering input system, contract issue, order tracking with factory in Germany, payment tracking (L/C or T/T payment), coordination with finance/marketing/after sales/logistics department, emergent problem solving and Auto show support etc... I have to say I learned so much from sales job especially the knowledge of how to run business efficiently and effectively in a company.
Unfortunately, I quit my job in ***in November 2004 after I served 9 months in their sales team. The main reason of my resignation was for too much workload in my position under the background that ***was running their import car business without a very clear sales procedure, sales channel and market orientation....
