The Summary of My Part-Job
From the beginning of last month till today (just 7 days during this period of time when the selling places is filled with customers), I do a part-time job that was selling TV and offered by the TCL company. At first, the company’s want ad said they wanted to employ interns and after the training, I knew it was just a part-time job and my main job was to bring the customer to our exhibition hall( maybe 15 meters away from our exhibition hall), which seemed to be very simple and kind of boring and in fact it was not so easy. Originally, I applied to this job just because I wanted to improve my ability to work and earn some social experience and this job seemed not to meet my need. So, knowing that, I was disappointed and wanted to quit, but after my deliberation, given that the company offered me ...view middle of the document...
When I was doing my job, I spent some time thinking about the words I should say to persuade and attract the customers to come to our exhibition hall, which can be considered as some kind of knowledge, very simple, easy and low-level one. However, even if the knowledge was so simple, I still can’t use it rightly and freely, and sometimes I even don’t know what to say to the customers. Maybe, this is what people always say, “ the gap between words and practice”, or “saying is one thing and doing is another thing”. Another example is that at the night of the day before the last day, I studied the introduction of the TV we sold, in an effect to introduce TV to the customers when the man in charge of the exhibition hall was busy or out, but the result was the next day I still had much difficulty in introducing. To sum up, practice is the bridge that connects ability with knowledge. If one would like a kind of ability, then he should keep practicing and reflecting in the process of the practice, with patience and hard work. Ability needs accumulating, not a thing that can be finished just in a short time or through one or several attempts. And one should practice from easy to hard, from simple to complicated, and, especially, from basis to higher level.
Another thing I benefit from the job is that I practice my ability to speak, to express myself. Though I didn’t improve so much, I did improve a little and I think it was enough because ability needs accumulating and no one can take a leap, like what I mention above. And now I pay more attention to my voice’s volume, enunciation, tone and speed, especially the latter there, which I think can influence the effect of one’s speech greatly.
A third thing I learn is that don’t promise to help somebody, acquaintance or stranger, learn about as much as information and details before you decide, or troubles may come to you. Like A wise old saying goes, “ look before you leap”.
