Young, talented and ambitious, Millie Li is someone to keep an eye on. Having spent just over two years with Maersk Line she is, according to all statistics from the Chinese job market, at a point in her career when opportunities outside a company prove most tempting.
Keen on developing further, Millie Li did make a job change recently, having started as a pricing analyst with Special Cargo at the Shanghai office after her initial years in Qingdao. The big difference for Maersk Line is that she made her move within the company.
“I am very happy with this new opportunity. Inside this company there are opportunities everywhere if you have the motivation and the ambition”, she says.
