Their work is diverse and essential for smooth operations. Communication skills, time management, flexibility and ability to deal with unpredictable situations and calm judgment are required.


Both have common aptitude and personality traits such as communication skills and judgment, but there are many differences depending on which path you take, so it is important to deeply self-analyze.
