Yejun Wang is a civil servant at the Economic and Trade Commission of Qingdao City. Below he talks about his career and how he accomplished his goals, and gives you advice on how to be successful in your future.

Why do you think you got this job?

I joined the civil service and achieved the 2nd highest marks in the exam in the Qingdao district.

Good preparation for the exam is essential. At the same time, I combine the theories and the practical issues together, especially with regards to the implications of the current situation.

What key advice would you give to current students from China who would like to get into a similar job to you?

Most importantly, be aware of the difference between Chinese culture and British culture. As a student who had foreign studies experience, the key is to adopt what you learned from the UK to China. At the same time, fluent English will help you get more opportunities for promotion.

What other advice would you give to others graduates?

Fluent English will help you get more opportunities for promotion.
