English: Chủ đề Work

1. Are you a student or are you working?

Well, for the past couple of years, I’ve been working as Software Engineer at Quoine, which is among the top 4 fintech company in Asia. I love this job, and I think it’s very interesting line of work.

2. What do you like about your job?

Well I guess the thing I like the most about my job is the salary. I make what I’d consider is a lucrative income, which means not only is it enough to cover my bills, but there’s also some extra to spend on whatever I want. So on the payday, I often treat myself to a meal at high-end restaurant or splurge on a nice shirt.

3. What do you dislike about your job?

You know, I’d have to say the overwhelming workload is something I am not a fan of. I mean, I’ve got a very hectic schedule, which means I’m always up the the ears in deadlines. That leaves me with every little quality time for family and friends. In the future, I might look into another job that is a bit less stressful.

4. What do you do after your work?

Well, when I get off work, my colleagues and I usually hit the bar and grab a couple of drinks and maybe a bite to eat if we’re feeling up to it. It’s great fun, and fantastic way to unwind.
