Learn and experience

The company has a reading meeting every month, and each department takes turns to share the contents of a book so that everyone can learn more knowledge. What impressed her most was that she had hosted a manufacturer meeting. Suppliers and clients met together, and she helped coordinate and communicate.

In addition to knowing more about purchasing, Elma also learned that everyone is serious and professional in their work, and they love their field so much even though everyone has family burden and pressure at work. In the purchasing department, she can learn a lot of things, such as comparing each material, coordinating and negotiating between suppliers and buyers.
