Most teenagers are not sure what career they should pursue. In today’s globalised society, work experience is as important as your academic background.

As a Chinese saying goes, “if you know yourself and others well, you will always be the winner”. It is crucial to be an “all-rounder” if you want to be successful. For example, once you have worked in business and finance, you can easily move to another field.

If you have experience, you can choose your career wisely. Then you don’t have to worry about the future. Don’t bury yourself in your studies. Try to expand your horizons and learn more about different jobs.

    Equipped with abandon of knowledge, together with various know-how and experience, life is just as easy as turning one’s hand over. Don’t just sit on the chair and gaze at a book. Stretch your hands and take actions now.
