I am going to tell you a fascinating story, quite an adventure that happened in my last year at university. Obviously, it was a tough time for everyone. I did worry a lot, not about my GPA but about work and career stuffs. I had been searching for opportunities for almost 6 months, but I was not qualified for any as they all required at least 2 years of working experience. The other day, I came across a poster for a management trainee program in a giant multinational corporation. Such programs are supposed to select top-ranked students only but I decided to apply, totally on a whim. The screening process was tough. We had to go through four rounds in total: IQ test, EQ test, team work and then final interview. I performed well in the first three rounds but I was uncertain about the last since my interviewers appeared unfriendly and intimidating.
The results were expected to come out one week later but I felt like 2 months waiting. Finally, the big day came and I got up super early that day to check my inbox constantly until I saw I had an unread email from them. I think my heart stopped at that moment. I jumped for joy and ran around to tell everyone about the great news. The fact that I was chosen for such programs seemed to be impossible even in my wildest dream. This incredible achievement has taught me to believe in myself and take on new challenges. They can be risky but they can open up vast opportunities and help me realize my full potential.
