Past Internship experience:
1. I worked at Qingdao Airlines Co., Ltd. for the first half of 2021. One of my accomplishments in the company was coming up with an operational performance report. As a business analyst in the company, I was majorly involved in analyzing the changes in shipping volume during the Spring Festival and cost management of internal consumption in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. My main focus was on cost management analysis, where I considered the oil price changes in the international situation. The practical experience taught me that if a company intended to thrive in today’s increasingly globalized world, it not only relies on internal management to ensure its benefits but also needs to analyze the market and operation from a global perspective.
2. Working in the Personal Finance Department of the Bank of China Taian Branch exposed me to the critical business skill of dealing with diverse customers and applying quantitative methods to daily assignments. I took my time to learn and understand the company’s operational processes, which is the root of all my achievements during my internships. At one point, I discovered a drawback in our workflow when I collected the work data of various departments. The work data required the front desk tellers to report each order in our work group, leading to low work efficiency and high human consumption. In this case, I proposed building up a sequence in our WeChat group to sort out everyone’s work data using Excel Pivot Table, and then I visualized them with Tableau. As it turned out, this method reduced the possibility of repetition and errors. It was an efficient method everyone was certain they would use in the long term.
