Some days ago, I reviewed my past career. It is not about how much money I have earned but rather the feeling and my self-value. Many things and people flashed into my mind and then disappeared again like an exciting film. Finally I got my inspiration from a glass of white wine which helped me realize the reasons why I`m here. Those reasons are opportunity, location and harmony.
I have been a maintenance staff memeber of Giti Tire since I graduated as an Electromechanical major in 1999. But I didn’t know why I chose to join the maintenance staff in a tire company. However I still would like to work hard for the trust from the company. I accumulated the knowledge of the tire industry day by day. I guess this is a must in the era of globalization, especially if you work for a high-tech global player like Continental.
As a citizen of Hefei, China I was really excited when I heard that Continental finally decided to build a tire plant in 2008 and I sent my resume immediately when the plant was opened in 2010. Fortunately, I got the chance to experience the high tech tire product knowledge in a mature plant. Our four core values are well known in the plant: for one another, trust, passion to win and freedom to act.
Instantly, I got an idea of what it means to be a maintenance employee in a tire company in Hefei. The most magical thing is we were not aware of each others presence before. We both have been working hard in the real world to prepare for our beautiful “dating experience”. I guess it is the “For One Another” that supports Continental and I to stay together for many years. Thanks to this great era, we finally marry. The most important thing is that I am fully convinced that I made the right choice. I regard the value “Trust” as the reason for my luck: I trust Continental and Continental trusts me. Both of us are eager to succeed and we get enough freedom to act on this.
Life continues, so the story never ends. Working for Continental Tires in China allows me to me earn enough to support my family and I also enjoy the problem solving tasks during my daily work. I wish Continental Tire Division all the best and to win further customers in China. I am fully confident that this won’t be an issue. Let us shape the future!
