The greatest lesson I have learned from my working experience at PKU News is to be professional at whatever you are doing.
Being professional, to be honest, might be a painful and frustrating process. You might have to fight against your laziness, carelessness, procrastination, or any other bad habits; you might have to face unexpected situations during interviews; you might have to make endless corrections before the news you write or edit is presentable; and you might have to learn to accept criticisms though sometimes they upset you. But after you go through all these, you will suddenly discover that you’ve grown towards a reliable, efficient, careful, and considerate person.
I really want to thank all my colleagues at PKU News. I enjoy working with you guys. Wish you all the best in the future!
