To thrive — not just survive!—墨尔本留学生求职建议

再过两个月又到毕业季了,一大批的墨尔本的同学们马上就可能失业了。不论考没考过雅思或PTE的同学,其实都会面临一个问题——职业规划。好的职业规划有时候可以事半功倍,快速实现自己的理想。墨尔本文波雅思PTE的小编就总结出一些关于工作的tips,希望可以启发大家。

Career growth in today’s fast moving environment requires all the skills that we normally ascribe only to(归因于) entrepreneurs — ability to adapt, change, be innovative, resilient and stay in constant learning mode. The days are gone when you were able to focus on a specific skill set in school and hone that expertise into a satisfying career for the rest of your working life.

(现在求职者都不容易啊,以前对于企业家才有的要求现在全都放在了普通求职者身上。而且以前那种‘一招鲜,吃遍天’的日子也已经一去不复返了。)

Business career growth and success now requires thinking like an independent entrepreneur, even if you have chosen to climb the corporate ladder. Here is my list of critical skills that are second-nature to every successful entrepreneur and I believe are equally valuable to corporate professionals and executives today.

 

  • Accept change as the only constant in business.

Conforming to the way (这里省略了that)things have always been done in a company is a career killer as well as a company killer. For entrepreneurs, change is the door to opportunity, so be proactive and make it happen. Assume your role needs to change every couple of years, or you are falling behind.

  • Develop and continually refine your competitive advantage.

 Entrepreneurs know that no competitive advantage means failure. Corporate professionals don’t realize that peers are their career competitors, so they get annoyed if another one is treated as ahead of the pack. Always be working to learn and demonstrate a clear skill lead in your domain.

(其实身边的同事就是你的竞争者,经常来更新自己的竞争优势来避免被淘汰。)

  • Demonstrate an ongoing sense of urgency on every task.

 It’s easy for professionals in a large organization to become complacent(满足的). Entrepreneurs understand that every aspect of customer satisfaction and business requires a sense of urgency to win. Change in a corporate environment can also happen quickly, so always keep a sense of urgency.

  • Don’t be hesitant to take calculated risks.

In the world of an entrepreneur, taking no risk is the riskiest thing you can do. Too many corporate professionals believe that taking no risk is the smartest thing to do. No risk means no gain in today’s world. Calculated risks are those with a low downside potential, but offer a large opportunity on the upside.

(不要怕承担风险,现在这社会不承担风险基本意味着挣不到钱。去承担点那种预期的风险,很小可能会往下走,反而很有可能向上走。)

  • Proactively seek out new career opportunities.

Many professionals feel that if they do a good job, someone above them will seek them out(地道搭配) for a better position. Entrepreneurs know that even the best new businesses don’t get found without effective marketing, testimonials(推荐书) and positioning work. Smart corporate professionals make their own luck.

(有时候别太低调了,该邀功的时候也得邀功。)

  • Build more and better relationships outside your domain.

Good entrepreneurs know that who you know is often more important than what you know, especially as you look for new opportunities. Entrepreneurs continually expand their network of advisors and experts. Professionals trying to win on a solo basis are destined to be lost in the shuffle.

(所以有空的时候别在家呆着了,多出去交点新朋友,交点有用的朋友。)

  • Approach your career as an unfinished work in progress.

Approach each day as an opportunity to learn new things, and grow into a changing role. Entrepreneurs know that their current solution is really a beta for the next one, and if that change takes too long, the business fails. Smart professionals never get comfortable with the status quo.

(永远别对现状满足,保持一颗积极进取的心,每天都看作一个学习新东西的机会。)

In every case, entrepreneurs understand that their success depends on a successful interaction with the environment around them, including economic, cultural and social issues. Corporate professionals often see themselves in a narrow tower, and become less sensitive to any outside forces. Everyone needs to think purposefully about how and where they choose to live and work.

(多看看外面的世界,多了解一下圈子外面的事情,不要总是局限在自己的那一亩三分地。)

I’m convinced that all members of the human species were originally born as entrepreneurs, and the skills and instincts that served them well to be survivors are still valuable today, whether you are managing a business or managing a career. If career growth and job satisfaction are your objectives, just pretend that you are an entrepreneur and your career is your business.

Your real challenge is to thrive — not just survive.
