(Dear English readers, please scroll down for English translation)

Ed有个朋友是个职业妇女,自己做老板开了间设计网页的小型公司。一直以来,经济支援着丈夫及孩子的生活。

刚抵多伦多时,我有想过去她公司免费做些简单的工作,反正我有的是时间。主要也是想了解及学习一下加拿大小资本公司的经营和操作。这对我以后在多伦多开自己的中药诊所有帮助。可是,想到自己一点网页的基本常识都没有,只会越帮越忙。所以,也没去多想。

最近一个月,为了写这个部落,天天都在网上学些有关网页的东西。很多时候, 我会很懊恼,因为有些东西,我怎样学都学不懂。最近,听说这位朋友的公司很忙。突然,想到,我现在学懂了一些简单的网页常识,可能不会太笨手笨脚了。而且,除了学习商业上的经验,我也真的想学基本的网页设计。真的是一举两得 !

于是,给她写了一个电邮。星期天,收到她的电话,说她想到一些容易的工作我可以帮忙。我心花怒放,一口答应了。星期三 (即明天)会到她公司去“上班”。

想起来,我只有零售及店铺的工作经验,从来没有在办公室工作过。 虽然有点战战兢兢,却期待尝试新的体验。


Ed has a friend is a working wife and mother. She owns a website design company, though is not a very big business, it financially supports the family.

When I first arrived in Toronto, I thought of volunteer myself to do some simple works in the company. For me, it is mainly to learn more about the small business operations and management in Canada. Such experience will help when I am ready to open my own Chinese medicine clinic in Toronto. However, I did not pursue further because I realised I did not have any basic knowledge or skills in website design, I would only create more troubles for them.

In the past month, in order to blog and maintain this blog more “professionally”, I went all out to learn more about blogging and some basics on website promotions and etc online. There were always things I never understood no matter how many websites I tried to read and learnt. It really frustrates me.

At this time, we heard that this friend’s company is extremely busy. Suddenly, it occurs to me that I might be able to help instead of creating troubles, since I now have more understanding and basic knowledge in website. In fact, I am not only want to learn the small business management skills, I also really want to learn about website design. This would be a “kill two birds with one stone” opportunity !

We wrote an email to her to offer my volunteer work. On Sunday, she called me and said that she has some ideas what and how I can help. I was very happy and agreed to go to her office to “work” on Wednesday (ie tomorrow) !

When I think of it now, for all my work experiences they were only in retail industry, this will be my first office experience. Although I do worry about my incompetency, I am looking forward for this new adventure.
