During my lab work at Department of Developmental Biology of Penn State, I assisted PI with lab research in regulation of Hippo signaling genes knockdown on the cell fate control in drosophila with molecular biology approaches such as PCR, DNA gel electrophoresis and westwen blot.
NNIT is a newly founded IT company with 500 employees in Tianjin,China.
My daily routine is to understand the goal for each day and communicate with my colleagues with all the possible situations in order to reach the goal. Normally I solve minor technical problems for our customers by answering phone calls or email, then forward them to relative departments when necessary. When I work in Windows server department, I also assign specific work to our co-workers and make sure the problem gets solved in time.
There are a great deal of IT special techniques I learn every day. The most difficult thing would be meeting the deadlines because we ought to solve problems for our guests in time which is a pretty high standard. Even though we have very tough tasks, the overall atmosphere is great and relaxing. The management is good in terms of benefit and sick leaves. The most enjoyable part of the job is sense of accomplishment when we as a team accomplish our weekly goals and monthly goals.
Overall, it's a great place to work.
