Frequently Asked Questions

Also are my self-reflections.

Do you need to go back to university?

No. I terminated my PhD program (with shaking hand) and am ready all-in for a company job.

Which city do you want to work in?

Basically Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, or Beijing.

Why did you end your PhD?

Because of resources reallocation. My competencies are in UX, while the PhD does tech-development. So it's rational that I adjust, being responsible for both myself and the research group.

How about your lack of industry experiences?

I have internships with industry leaders, which means I defeated tons of peer-competitors. Moreover, I’m a quick learner. So:
Hire me now, get payback very soon.  My CV.
