In the workplace, there are also choices, such as career planning. This is also often asked in interviews, yet we rarely really think about it. But without a reasonable career plan, you will become confused when you reach a certain stage. You may end up being distracted by scarce resources and losing rational decision-making.
Behavioural economists Mullinathon and Shafie point out in Scarcity:Chronic resource scarcity can cause the brain's attention to be captured by scarce resources. When attention is occupied by too many scarce resources, people will lose the cognitive resources required for rational decision-making, which they call "bandwidth".
A lack of "bandwidth" leads people to Latest Mailing Database focus too much on current interests rather than long-term interests. In order to meet the current life, a poor man has to budget carefully and does not have any "bandwidth" to think about investment and development matters. And an overly busy person, in order to meet deadlines, also has to be dragged down by the most urgent tasks and has no time for the really important things.
The beginning of this is to introduce my story, and then share my experience to talk about my views on career planning (not how to do career planning), and I hope everyone can think about my experience.
When I first entered the workplace, my knowledge of products was limited to fur, and I didn't know the words to b, to c, oem, etc. that were said in the market. I just feel that I want to find a job related to products, and I have not considered what industry to enter. I only know that the Internet of Things I have learned should be related to my major.
So I started the interview journey with these simple ideas. Every time I interviewed, I wanted to get in, and the benefits were almost good. When asked about career planning, I would look for the answers found on the Internet and take a form (such as Learn product thinking and working methods, be familiar with business, and become a product manager on your own within 3 years).
Looking back now, I didn't plan my future well at the beginning, but I was simply occupied by resources such as "finding a job to make money", and then I joined a company as a product assistant in a confused way. At that time, I was complacent about finding a job quickly, because I really didn't learn anything in college, and the colleagues who joined the company together were graduate students from a 985 college.
In such an environment, I am both happy and inferior. I am happy because I have found a job with good prospects, and I am inferior because my colleagues around me are from excellent backgrounds, but I don’t understand my own products and technologies.
During the three-month probationary period, because of low self-esteem, he seldom spoke, and even less asked questions, for fear of exposing his lack of knowledge. But my leadership is good and patient. She said when I turned to regular and defended that because of my performance during the probationary period, she had doubted whether I would be able to do this job. Later, I found that although I lacked knowledge, I was very practical and reliable, so I gradually cultivated me. I also study slowly, go home to make up lessons, gradually become familiar with the company's business, and gradually build up my self-confidence.
While working, I supplemented the knowledge of products privately, and gradually gained my own understanding of the product post. I haven't participated in training courses, and I'm from a wild road, so I'm also confused in the process of work. I gradually understood that the industry I am in is a traditional industry, not the Internet, and I also know the words to b, to c, oem and so on.
Our company is a TO B product. My usual work is focused on business execution. As for what I have learned online about "drawing prototypes", "product design", "user research", and "traffic conversion" in products, I basically out of reach. So at that time, I was lost again, and I began to wonder if what I was doing was really the job of a product manager. Why didn't I do the famous people who changed the world like "Jobs" and "Zhang Xiaolong" on the Internet, about product creativity What about design work?
