Gold Three Silver Four, Gold Nine Silver Ten". The four months of temptation gleamed in the distance, attracting countless professionals to the sea of recruitment. If we summarize the two "population migrations" in contemporary society, one is the Spring Festival and the other is the recruitment season.
From the beginning of the year to now, I have participated in the interview of more than a dozen product managers. Even the HR lady who has just entered the workplace lamented that there are so many product managers in the society, but very few are really suitable. From talking to candidates, I found that most people don't really know why they're jumping jobs. On a deeper level, they don't really think about what they want. Please pay attention to my wording, I said "true". People tend to overestimate their cognitive abilities and do things they think they already understand without thinking. This is not my nonsense, there is a professional term called "Dunning-Kruger effect".
At this time, when someone tells you: "You should make a career plan". Then you start to look for the development path of your career, the rank rules of big factories, and the development prospects of the industry. And then... not then.
Most people's career plans are like Latest Mailing Database a fat man's weight loss plan, forever stranded in their own minds. why is it like this? Because this group of people does not have a clear and accurate concept of career planning. They don't know: what is a profession? What is career planning?

Today I would like to share three views with you:
Career ≠ career, career is survival, career is growth.
Focus on your career and work with your career goals in mind.
"Bearing with the brain" is a skill that we need to practice continuously throughout our life.
Let's talk about the first one:
1. Career ≠ career, career is survival, career is growth
"Job seeker" is a career. In the relationship between employees and enterprises, employees are always on the weak side. Needless to say, everyone knows this. But not everyone realizes the real cruelty of this.
Take a simple example:
When a company conducts large-scale layoffs, does the company's stock price rise or fall? It goes up. In other words, when you are unemployed and have no income, the enterprise value and the boss's income increase.
Let's take a look at Baidu Baike's explanation of "occupation": "usually refers to the work that an individual serves the society and serves as the main source of life". Translated into the vernacular: The profession we are engaged in is to use our physical or mental labor to exchange money for the company to buy the necessities of life. So, let's ask one more level: Will this deal last forever? It must not last, because our physical and mental strength will gradually decline, there will be people with stronger physical and mental strength to replace us, and enterprises will eventually stop exchanging with us.
