  • 6.00 a.m Unlike many of my colleagues, because I am a third-year student, I must wake up early to go to university.

  • 8.00 a.m I have breakfast when my professor stops lecturing.


  • 12.00 a.m I finish my classes and go to E2. If I work at E2 all day, I will have lunch with other colleagues, it’s time for me to socialise with other teams’ members and learn more about E2! 

  • 1.00 p.m Start working ……………….. Switch on the laptop and then check emails, tasks… 

On Wednesdays, HR meeting will be held, we will evaluate our projects, give some new ideas, feedback and give solutions for our current problems. We will report our progress to the Other Guys. (The Other Guys are referred to our bosses, they feel unpleasant when the employees call them by their position like COO, CEO…)

  • 1.30 p.m I support work permit applications for foreigners so I have to visit some administrative agencies. If I can go there early in the afternoon, I will not have to wait too long. Otherwise, I must spend the afternoon there. It’s all about time management and prioritization.

  • 2.30 p.m Training hours A newbie always needs some training and so do I. Many new tools are really interesting such as Airtable, Asana… Each of them can be used for different purposes. 

  • 3.30 p.m  Another interesting project I’m working on is the Summer Camp project. I’m assigned to sending various kinds of emails such as Employment Opportunities, Invitations to Interview …; keep in touch with candidates and plan schedules. If you have never been in charge of scheduling, you may feel happy when you receive an easy task. Oh my God! Nope! Completely nope! It’s simple once you design a schedule for a small group of people. Human Resources Department wise, numerous candidates drive you crazy with scheduling. It may take you an hour after hour to stick your eyes on the calendar and screen to draw up a smart schedule. However, as long as you love what you are doing, you can overcome and wipe up your mess.

  • 5.30 p.m I can support other teams such as Admin, Academic,… if I do not have anything to do.

  • 6.00 p.m Back homeeeeee and it’s time for relaxing, recharging, and pumping the energy for tomorrow. 

  • 7:30 p.m: Having dinner with my family.

  • 8:00 p.m: It’s time to hang out with my friends

  • 11:00 p.m: Bed time noww. See you tomorrow!
