About me

I applied for the role through the CareerLink website of the University of Manchester. My PhD degree makes me stands out from the candidates, giving me a strong competitive advantage.

Through the PhD study, I've acquired strong self-learning ability and strict self-discipline. It has been very helpful me to absorb new knowledge more quickly and also provides me with an analytical view of my work. 

Overall, this degree is an excellent opportunity to enhance your ability, and it is also an amazing experience to conduct your research with your supervisor and colleagues. You will learn and improve through this process and these will become your advantage for the future.

I have really enjoyed that fact that it provides an excellent opportunity to experience all functions of the organization.
