1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The value of holding junior positions (5E So Tsz Ying)

I think it is unnecessary for young people to hold a senior position in the first few years after graduation.

First, a lack of work experience in junior positions may prevent young people from being good leaders even however brilliant they are. Without the experience, it can be difficult for them to be empathetic with the difficulties and needs of their subordinates. They may therefore become too strict and inconsiderate.

Second, working in junior positions can allow young people to gain valuable experience. In the junior positions, young people can learn to cooperate with others but not just giving orders which enable them to be good team players.

Finally, holding junior positions, young people can enjoy more spare time for further studies. After a few years of sustaining learning, they will be equipped for capability of carrying out duties in senior positions.

In a nutshell, young people should value the opportunity to equip themselves in junior positions at the beginning of their career. Do you agree with me?
