Before the lecture, Wu asked students a question. “If your families are ill, you have two doctors to choose from. One is super skillful but charges a lot; the other is mediocre but charges much less. Who will you choose for the surgery”. The students unanimously said that they would choose the former. Wu smiled and said that both were not desirable. “I want to tell that we must be a technologically and ethically benevolent person. This is the principle that I have always followed.”



Wu first used this hypothesis to arouse students' thinking, and used four sets of cases to guide students in the process of career development to follow the eight keywords "self-discipline, discipline others, research, responsibility." Taking the two projects of Zhonghai Garden and Zhonghai Huating as examples, he warned students to be strict with laws and resist bad temptations. Taking the concrete projects in the Coastal Green Homes and Jingdezhen as examples, he taught students how to be a successful organizer to lead and manage teams; Wu introduced a project in Changhong Group, demonstrated how to finally choose cleverer way to deal with unexpected problems through active exploration and diligent study. In the end, Wu encouraged students to avoid things that are harmful to our country and group, to become persons of great responsibilities.

 

In the Q&A session, students spoke enthusiastically, the career planning education reached a climax. Wu made a brilliant reply on such topics as “China's real estate business in the future”, "how to choose a suitable enterprise", "criteria for recruiting employee", and won warm applause from teachers and students.

Students said that this was a heartfelt cultural feast, they would take Wu as an example, learn professional basic knowledge, and be persons with "self-discipline, discipline others, research, responsibility".
