I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment here is taking responsible for the guides in the China (Guangzhou) International Building Decoration Fair. Also, I learned how to use Excel to organize data, such as mail merging and filtering.

I learned...
In order to win trust and have more tasks to be assigned, I need to be patient and do the assigned tasks perfectly.Sometimes the co-workers will ask you to print papers and scan the contracts, which is boring. However, this is a great opportunity for you to build a trust relationship with the co-workers.

Advice for others...
It is always good to "begin with the end in mind". Think before communicating and doing the tasks. Always double check before submitting your work to the supervisors. Keep in touch with the co-workers because they could be a good networking opportunity.
