Some people say that such a life is monotonous, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. The key is to suit them. As the Internet economy is so developed now, there may be many new business formats in the future, which may become career choices."

  "I feel that my classmates are more concerned about salary and benefits. Some companies can provide board and lodging, which is very attractive to everyone, because it will solve the number one problem for most graduates when they first work and save them a lot of money.

For example, some students want to be teachers in public schools, but they don’t know how many class hours teachers generally require, and what tasks they have to undertake in addition to teaching tasks.”

  Chen Jie feels that the current students' self-knowledge and understanding are not enough, "What kind of person I am and what values ​​I have, only by combining these can I know what kind of work is suitable".
