Photo Reflection

I took several small quizzes in Payscale and I was given 10 jobs and I like 2 of them. One is Sales Director and another one is Human Resources Information System Manager (HRIS). The most important thing that I concern about a job is how much that I can earn. Both of those jobs can pays well. Also, my father is businessman and I am familiar with selling. My uncle is a professor in HR and I am interested in HRIS. So I think both of those jobs are good choices for me. My intended major is Economics. I think Sales Director have to learn some economic courses. So I think my intended major are relative to both of those jobs.

The potential job #1 (Sales Director)

To be honest, I love Sales Director most. Since I am kind of person who like the feeling to control and manage people and Sales Directors are high-level management employees and normally executives who are responsible for directing sales teams. Also, this job is kind of less stressed job. I am afraid about stress and I struggle with anxiety so hard. The most important is this job is really high-paid job. Salary is the most important part I considered with. I do think the level of satisfaction is less important than salary.

The second job that I love is Human Resources Information System Manager (HRIS). I love this job because of three reasons. The first reason is the degree level. The majority of this job is bachelor’s degree. I do not want to stay school too long. The second reason is still about salary and less stress. The finally reason is about my uncle. He always told me about how fun that HR is. He is a social person and like talks with people. I am this kind of person, too. So I think I can do good in HRIS like he did.


Roughly, I think Payscale did a good job to match me with ten potential jobs and I like to accept its advice about job-planing.

personal profile

I am Zhang Hao from Zhejiang Province in China. I live in Wenzhou which is a small town. Everyone likes to call Wenzhou is a business city. Since Wenzhou is the first part to trade when China was Reforming and Opening. I have a brother who is younger than me. My parents are merchants. They always told me the importance of the knowledge. So I was born with the passion to knowledge. I like to read Chinese classic books. Since I think I can get the meaning of life by reading those. Also, I like to do sports on weekends. Usually, I like to play basketball with my friends. We can chat the interesting things of school days. I like the feeling of sweating. Taking a shower after sweating can make me feel so refreshing.

I went to the smaller town near Wenzhou for my middle school which is called Ruian. I like this town because of its delicious food called ‘jiang you ya she’ in Chinese which means sauce duck tongue. I ate those for lunch every day in school. In the summer break that I finished my high school, I was always chilling out at home and my mother’s shop was coincidentally short of a cashier. Naturally, I had to take that. In the beginning, I was a bad cashier. Every time hasty customers came to me and said “Can’t you hurry up?” I would impatiently answer, “don’t you see I am trying to hurry? Could you please keep quiet for a while?” Slowly, my irrational answers hurt my mother’s business. I could see the disappointment in my mother’s eyes. I had to stop indulging my bad attitude and impatience. I changed the way I talked from rudely to politely. Every time when customers urged me to hurry up, I would keep calm and just be quicker. Progressively, I can see that they are less and less grumpy, and more and more satisfied. Time went by, and this polite attitude rooted in my soul.

Those are ‘jiang you ya she’. Photo credit:

The biggest reason that I choose OSU is Thompson Library. Since, I am a reading lover. And we all know that Thompson Library is one of the biggest libraries in the United States. And I love to read books after class for spending my free time. I like the study atmosphere in Thompson Library. Another reason is Recreation and Physical Activity Center, which is also called RPAC. I am kind of lazy people and I do not want to workout frequently. But the advanced facilities would push me to go to gym for exercise. The sense of belonging makes me feel a sense of home. Since if you shout out ‘OH’, there are a lot of people would answer you ‘IO’. Those are why that I choose OSU for my university.
