I just entered a foreign trade corporation. The first three months are internships, mainly to learn from the experienced salesman. But they are usually busy. They just arrange some work such as copying and faxing for me, without teaching anything about business. What should I do to get familiar with the import and export business process in the shortest time and adapt to the post asap?
Just entering the workplace, you need to complete the transition from student to staff asap psychologically. You need to make yourself look like a foreign trade person from the appearance, behavior to the professional quality and the temperament. From the outside to the inside, let yourself become a real foreign trade person. For example, when working in a foreign trade company, you should dress formally. You need to polish your shoes often, change your shirt every day and keep your hair clean. Don’t wear slippers, beach pants and other casual clothes to the office.
After leaving school, no one will urge you and teach you to study. Therefore, you need to train yourself. Try to let yourself learn self-discipline and take the initiative to adapt to society as well as the workplace.
In the company, people all have their own tasks. They are not your full-time private coach, who need to guide you one-on-one and assess the effects of your studies. You should take the initiative to learn and ask them for advice. When they guide you, you should study hard. You ought to learn how to make phone calls, how to dress, how to treat people, and how to schedule time. However, when consulting them, you need to pay attention to the situation and sense of propriety. Don’t complain that they don’t teach you sincerely. The key is to ask them for advice with good faith. In other words, you must have enough sincerity to let them teach you.
When you arrive at the new company, everything is unacquainted. You need to quickly understand the company’s regulations, process, business approval system, authorization system, and business philosophy. In this way, when you start doing business, you will not be trapped by the internal processes and systems. Of course, you can also learn about the products, customers, suppliers, and other information through some tasks assigned to you by the company. Then you can gradually understand the situation and business of the company.
When you first enter the foreign trade workplace, you should be modest. You need to adjust yourself asap and become a member of the team. To others’ suggestions, criticisms, and even accusations against you, you must be open-minded and accept them with humility. It is a good thing for you that others can tell you what needs to be improved and let you know the direction of improvement and effort. Don’t care about their attitude toward you. And don’t be dissatisfied because others criticize you. I’ve met with some apprentices. My experience is that if they are willing to learn, I will teach more and give more opportunities. But, if they are not active, I will show less.
