WORK EXPERIENCE

Oct/2009 Present Count on Us (Part-time) - Glasgow

The main responsibility of this company is to do the transportation data collection. Surveyors are usually working in group of two to collect all kinds of data, including statistics of passenger flow in train, statistics of car flow at a busy crossroad or roundabout, and statistics of parking space at car park. Team leader of each group has to communicate with either supervisor from Count on Us to discuss about survey details, or staffs from ScotRail or passengers about train details. The team leaders need to have the ability to solve sudden events, such as delay or cancellation of trains. It only took me one-month-time to be a team leader, and be trusted by superiors.

May/2011 Present National Data Collection (Part-time) Glasgow

This is a company doing similar job as Count on Us.

Working in retail gave me the opportunity to gain customer service skills and adapt to working under pressure. I had to know about the products I was selling. This gave me the edge I needed to answer any questions and make recommendations.

Jul/2007 Sept/2007 Xinyuanda Automobile Sales Company - Harbin

Main job I did was to be an assistant of the manager, helping answering customer phones, or printing documents.
