Participating in FIBC really help me to learn about things, like marketing strategy, operating procedure, etc. I started with knowing nothing but ended with fully adapting into the environment. Although our company did not perform well at the end, all of us did work really hard. I believe the key reason we failed is the inapposite marketing strategy, insufficient personal ability, and lacking experience. I hope I can do a better job next time.
