Gold three silver four, the golden time of the workplace is also the time of anxiety. All of them have one theme, that is, job-hopping, especially for those who have just joined the company for about a year, it is an opportunity and a challenge.
It is an opportunity, because there are many good companies in gold, silver and four, good jobs are open to the outside world, and there are many good opportunities; it is also a challenge, because of working for one and a half years, the experience is not enough to support your strength, and the training is not as good as fresh students. noob. And I'm the kind of person who quits after a year and a half of employment.
Recently, the official account has received a lot of inquiries about resume revision and job hunting, so I plan to write an article to review my first social recruitment experience, hoping to be able to attract others.
The story takes place around December 2017.
Half a month of ups and downs
From November to December of 2017, I traveled back and forth between Beijing and Shanghai for nearly half a month, and these itineraries were the result of nearly half a year of entanglement and thinking. Moreover, in the end, a choice was made half a year in advance.
Why do you say half a year in advance?
This will start in mid-2017. After the school recruitment, he entered the old club and started his career. From the beginning, he gradually grew to be able to take charge of the project independently, and achieved good results.
However, I slowly discovered that I was gradually entering a very strange state, and the state that worried me most was becoming lazy and lazy to think.
So, I consulted with some seniors in the product industry, and the answer they gave was "First try to change yourself, if it's still the same after two years, then think about changing the environment."
So everyone should have guessed that I did this half a year in advance: I resigned.
Of course, as a professional, job-hopping is a very common thing. However, I think this time is somewhat different. As the more popular saying goes: "Job-hopping, either the salary is low, or the job is unhappy."
I'm wondering if it fits my situation?
I think it can be said to be in line or not, the key depends on how to understand this "unhappy"! It’s unhappy to fight with others, unhappy to offend others, unhappy with less salary, unhappy with bad benefits…
I've been thinking about it for a while, as if these don't have much to do with me.
The salary given by the old employer is relatively good;
Most of my colleagues are nice and easy to get along with.
The leadership is also very nice;
Opportunities are also good, and many honors have been obtained;
The benefits are also very good, and there are a lot of gift packages and gifts for the holidays.
So much so that during the Latest Mailing Database interview later, the interviewer will ask back: "It seems that you have developed well in the original company, why did you leave the company?" So what is the crux of my problem?
Later, I figured it out clearly, my "unhappy" is: my time commitment and ability growth are not proportional . What is more worrying is that my ability growth may not meet the expectations of the department and position.
Because if the investment of time is not proportional to the growth of capacity, it is actually harmful to both the organization and the individual.
A company develops an employee to create value for the company, but if your abilities fail to meet expectations, it will be too late to make changes, no matter who.
I struggled with this issue for about half a year. In the past six months, I was trying to make changes and make new attempts to keep myself in a process of constant input, but after all, I found that I still couldn’t fight against the environment, so I still made selected.
So there is a question: if the current environment is not suitable, which companies are suitable?
As an old and newcomer who has just worked for more than a year, I still position myself in the growth stage, and I still have a long way to go. So, big companies are my only target, startups are definitely not considered. Here is also a personal suggestion for the majority of students who are motivated to become PMs: for the first job, try to go to a big company .
