It is important to note that my stress tolerance is quiet high, which I practically improved. In view of the fact that studying at university sometimes refers to being under the pressure because of the difficulties of subjects, preparing for the exams and etc. Furthermore, it need to be said that employers seek for those workers who can maintain effective performance under pressure or adversity. There are many jobs that require a candidate to be able to work under pressure and who is able to cope with different levels of stress. Moreover, stress tolerance is extremely helps in communication with co-workers and solving any kind of problems at work.

Working together is success”(Ford, 1923). Comparatively, there are various advantages of teamwork for career development. For instance, It improves profitability as well as productivity as all the employees are highly motivated and skilled. A business or cooperation will not survive unless all members work as one team.

I expect that after studying year 2 and 3 I can communicate with any level of people with confident.
