疫情期间想跳槽?专家建议这样做

在最好的时代,未来也是不确定的,大流行病期间更甚。《逆向管理》作者、伦敦商学院教授埃米尼娅·伊巴拉指出,因此探索多重选择而不是专注于一条路是比较合理的。

The future is uncertain at the best of times, but especially during a pandemic. It makes sense, then, to pursue a range of possible options, rather than sticking to one single vision, notes Herminia Ibarra, London Business School professor and author of “Act like a leader, think like a leader”.

 

Some of those ideas may be more realistic than others, but that can open you up to new opportunities and keep you resilient to further change ahead.

 

"Even in happier times, career change is never a perfectly linear process. It’s a necessarily messy journey of exploration,” she says.

 

Career change, by its nature, is “liminal” — or existing between a past that is gone and a future that’s uncertain. That can be an unsettling state, but it’s also an important chance to process emotions and change.

 

"Downtime is crucial not only for replenishing the brain’s stores of attention and motivation, but also for sustaining the cognitive processes that allow us to fully develop,” says Ibarra.

 

Indeed, neurological studies suggest making time for “inner business” can be more beneficial than completing a list of self-improvement activities.

 

培养新技能、学习新知识、结交新朋友是重塑职业道路的常见和重要渠道。不过,与其专注于一种技能,不如多尝试几种来比较优劣。

Developing new skills, knowledge and contacts are common and important routes to career reinvention. Yet, rather than focusing on one specific project, try several to compare the pros and cons of each.

 

They may not all be directly applicable to your desired new career path, but they will help you find where your true strengths lie.

 

"The point is to do new and different work with new and different people, because that process represents an opportunity to learn about yourself, your preferences and dislikes, and the kinds of contexts and people that bring out the best in you,” says Ibarra.

 

要求社交隔离的疫情期间不是建立人际网络的一个好时机。但是随着上网交流的人数达到前所未有的高度,这可能是一个和老熟人重新取得联系的好机会。

A pandemic which requires social distancing is not a great moment for building your network. But with more people than ever communicating online, it could be a good chance to reconnect with old contacts too.

 

 

Studies suggest distant connections are often better placed to offer you new perspectives and honest advice than your nearest and dearest. However, they may also be less motivated to help you. Ibarra recommends drawing on “dormant ties” — colleagues you were once close to but haven’t been in contact with for three or so years.

 

职业变动感觉像是一个更关注自己的过程。然而,和可靠的人谈一谈、讲清楚你的想法很重要。

A career change can feel like an inward-looking process. However, it’s important to discuss it out with trusted parties and to clarify your ideas.

 

"Just the simple act of telling a story about what you want to do, or why you want a change, can clarify your thinking and propel you forward, by committing you publicly to making a change,” Ibarra notes.

 

"In the end, when it comes to reinventing your career in this time of crisis, remember this important point: The time to get going is now — but don’t go it alone.”
