MT Experience Sharing

The first year I spent in SHKP was very educational. During this year in Shanghai, my primary task was to learn as a Management Trainee. On the one hand, I was familiarized with the process to lease and manage office properties and participated in negotiations with clients. On the other hand, I rotated through other departments to understand their duties, which also gave me a more comprehensive view of my work and career.

In the meantime, I also prepared for Nanjing’s work with the assistance of my colleagues. The experience of this year not only brought me into contact with Nanjing’s market and clients, developing my knowledge of real estate, but also made me change from a student into a proactive professional.

Besides work, I took part in many activities organized by the company, from which I stuck up a friendship with my colleagues and truly felt the corporate culture of “Building Homes with Heart”.

During the year I spent in SHKP, I've grown more quickly than I'd ever had, not least the change from being a student to someone with a full-time job!.. Now I'm working in the office leasing team in Shanghai, which gives me experiences such as client negotiations and communication with real estate agencies. On top of these, I am responsible for the sales and marketing function for our properties, which includes planning for tenant activities, preparing show flats, and more. The job has given me some unbelievable opportunities and challenges, while constantly pushing me to fulfil my potential.

I'm very grateful to my colleagues for their generous support and encouragement throughout the year. It is because of their trust that I could exploit my full potential, even to be given the chance to be the MC for the annual dinner.

Beside work, I've recently picked up a hobby – learning Cantonese. I've enrolled in the Cantonese class provided by the company. It is my goal to strive for improvement, so that I can communicate better with our Hong Kong colleagues, and further assimilate into the company's culture.

In short, SHKP has become my second home and I hope to continue progressing at the same time as the company does.
