The best thing about my profession is constant learning every day and that’s what I like. I can also share my knowledge with my Manager/senior managers as well as the rest of the team. This goes two ways - I also take guidance from them, which helps me evolve and improve which in turn makes it easier to understand the concepts. Finding new ways of indulging myself in learning new things - it feels so great to learn new things which I can use in my everyday tasks.
