Q: Why HR?
A: I joined HR section by chance when I was doing my internship. I was fond of training after I got involved. In the beginning, I thought I would be a trainer, giving lectures everywhere. After 10 years, I found HR actually is a broad concept. Friends in hotell industry, business operation or any other industries always invite me to share my experience.
A: In my view, a competent HR has to know the business his employer is doing. This requires lots of professional knowledge and experience. If you know the business and HR, you will definitely have a bright future.
In BHI, I met lecturers and professors who taught me how to do and what to be.
I met friends who spent crazy days with me together.And my dearest love.
