Post  Stella Zheng on Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:02 am

Last term , we have learnt the course International marketing .During that marketing course , I think I was full of vigour and enthusiasm comparing with other course . Therefore , I'd like to be a marketer in the future .
In my opinion , communication and interpersonal skills ,team work skills , search skills ,positive leadership skills ,sales skills and having a creative mind are essential for a marketer .
I think that I'm creative , self - motivated, a good team player, a good command of English and master the skills of searching and sales . After taking part in the college entrance examination , I worked as a sales in a large company . The most important , my performance was highly praised by my leaders . However , my weakness is lack of communication and interpersonal skills . For one side , I am too shy . For another side , I don't know how to talk to all walks of people . I feel embarrassed when I talked to a stranger .

Analysis of My Soft Skills

Post  Niki Nie on Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:35 am

It is very likely that I would find myself in teaching. Because I think it is suitable for me.

Regarding for the soft skills that required as a teacher, first of all, it would be knowledgeable, in other words, professional qualities. Next, it follows by communication and listening skills, nice personality which includes patience, devotion and enthusiasm etc.

As the soft skill strengths that I possess, they are knowledge, and some charming personalities (lol) such as patience, enthusiasm and above all, a willingness to learn. I own these soft skills because I am raised under great surroundings. There are parents, teachers and peers who teach me how to behave and build up myself.

The weakness I’d very much like to point out is communication skill due to lack of experience of how to put myself cross clearly. And I fully aware if I want to be a good teacher, I must improve it by paying attention to every time I’ve got the chance to explain something and observe how the experienced teachers do when they are giving lectures.

Try to Develop the Soft Skills You Need

Post  Tramy Shen on Thu Sep 04, 2014 2:32 pm

In the future, I have longed to become a successful business woman or a translator in a foreign enterprise which may involve a lot of work. In that case, I think the soft skills that might be required include presentation skills, teamwork skills, problem-solving skills, and language and negotiation skills.
In my part, my soft skill strengths are teamwork skills and problem-solving skills, but with language and negotiation being my weakness. To solve the problem, I will improve my language and negotiation skills by communicating with others more. What’s more, I should read more books to strengthen my professional knowledge.

From the shop assistant job this summer, I don’t think I would like to do sales job. I am weak in persuade people to buy the product or place an order. So I may choose a job like office assistant. I think this kind of job need the ability of warmhearted, careful, thoughtful and being willing to do many kinds of things. As me, I am always interested in many strange things and I won’t feel good if I always do the same things. So I am willing to do different things. Also, I am a volunteer, I enjoy helping people, I think I will enjoy the job that helping my boss.

i want to work for myself by running a company in the line of fashion clothes. that will require me to have many soft skills, for example, i should have good communicative skill to talk with my employees to build good relationship and negotiate with the suppliers and the buyers. Besides, i should have reasonable management skills to train my staff and run well my company; next, i should have the presentation skills to convey my ideas to my staff to let them know more about the company and attract more buyers. Then i should be modest and eager to learn the fashion trends in the market so that i can have the competitive edge. In addition, i think i should have social conversation skill to expand and improve the interpersional connections. Also, the manners and etiquette, cross-cultural joint activities, discussion skills, etc. are required. But now, i don't think i have all the skills, and i am learning these skills to improve myself to go towards the target.

Post  Elise Yuen on Fri Sep 05, 2014 9:57 am

As far as I am concerned, my future job probably will be teaching. I think teaching demands a person who is responsible, good at expressing his or her views and have a good leadership etc. Personnaly speaking, first of all, I think I have enough passion for teaching and being very patient with children. However, I am poor at expressing my opinion which makes me feel blue. In the future, I will try hard to give my point more quickly and more correctly.

1. ability to find cooperation parteners
2. good negotiation skills
3. meeting arrangement skills
4. teamwork skills
5. time arrangement skills

Well, probably, I will first work as a clerk in a company. When dealing with clercial work, in my opinion, presentation skills, teamwork skills, and problem-solving ability may be of importance.

I haven't do any business presentation or business report before, so I lack of experience. Furthermore, because I am unfamiliar with many things to do with business, I may have problems solving difficulties such as customers' extra requirement. However, I am a quick learner. I can learn things from others. Also, I am good at team work, I can work hard with my members to solve problems. Besides, some online courses can also be very useful .Take part in more seminar, seize every possible chance to challenge myself, and then I will improve a lot.

In my opinion, being a teacher not only needs a variety of knowledge and be professional in it, but also needs a lot of soft skills.I think someone who want to be a teacher should own the skills such as time arrangement, presentation skills, problem-solving skills and so on.

Last term, we have three classes to have a simulate class to primary school students or middle school students.After those classes I found my presentation skills was not good enough to become a real teacher. To improve my skills, I think I should practice more and see the video of record so that I could find all the weaknesses of my teaching and improve my skills. I believe the saying"Practice makes perfect" so I will try my best to pracitse more.

In the future, I want to be a flower shop owner. Since I like flower, and I hope to work by myself. Actually, to be a flower owner, I should have many soft skills, like management, sales skills, leaderships skills, self-management, problem-solving ability, language skills, negotiation, and so on. I have been a waiter or sales in the last three years, so I have the experience to communicate with my customers, and I can persuade customer to buy my flower. But I think after I open my flower shop, I need to study how to solve problem. Because maybe at the first time , I am the only assistant of my flower shop. And I need to manage all the thing in my shop by myself.

I could potentially find yourself in teaching, maybe assistant teacher will be a good choose. I think this position need the following soft skills:Communication includes listening, questioning, persuading, negotiating and cooperation covers respecting, helping, sharing, participating.Besides, admitting my own mistake and questioning myself are also necessary. What's more, condescending is important as well as slightly annoying. As a university student, I think I can good at teamwork, so i can communicate and cooperate with others well. For weakness, I am afraid it is not easy for me to admitting my own mistake and questioning myself. To develop them, I will try to be more understand myself more and listen to and accept others' opinions.
