怎么样在美国找到第一份工作-Yoky的4步法

昨天有朋友提到这个话题,我就干脆写篇文章,把我在美国找工作的经历和感想写出来。 背景情况:我13年冬天毕业于James Madison 大学,市场营销专业,拿过一个商学院小奖学金,打过很多有含金量的工,以荣誉学生身份提前毕业。 我不是学霸,是的话早进常青藤了。我逻辑思维很烂,能有一些成就完全是避重就轻达到的。如果你了解我,你知道我小时候成绩很差,高中时读得也很痛苦。 只是到了大学在压力很大的情况下很努力得学习和生活,如鱼得水。 毕业后进入一个世界五百强Xerox 的在华盛顿DC附近的子公司。干得是最不可能拿签证的科技类产品销售的活,公司愿意留我,居然破例帮我申请到了工作签证。 想看到我之前打过的工做过的工作,可以点击这里看我的LinkedIn profile. 后来我发觉自己真心不喜欢销售科技产品,差不多干了一年辞职了。之后横跨美国,搬到加州。我在洛杉矶学习了表演。在这个过程中明白了自己要干什么。转行到了自己热爱的学习与发展这个领域中。 我现在在美国咨询公司盖洛普工作,是一个优势教练和顾问。同时自己凭着兴趣爱好,运营着2BHappy这个漫无目的的公众号。去年把挚爱的Dr. Brene Brown 的脆弱的力量领导力工作坊第一次带来中国大陆,今年主要教一些免费的公益软实力工作坊,发一些尽量不鸡汤有干货的文章。主要的精力还是在帮助盖洛普促进优势运动上。觉得真是爱上了并嫁给了优势教练这个神奇的东西。 说回找工作,咳咳。 可以直接在这篇我2014年写的小闷骚小忧伤的文章中找到一些信息和建议: 我只是想写下细碎的心情-下班后在美国怀念上海的夜晚 我这里来补充归纳一下那篇文章中没提到的其他信息: 要找到工作,你要 第一步:了解并接受自己 你到底想做什么呢? 资源: -学校的职业规划师 -校友,学长学姐们 -爱给学生建议的教授们 -让你更加了解自己的书,职业规划小册子。 -网络测试 (要靠谱的,有科学根据,大家推荐的那些) -问问身边的5个了解你的朋友们,他们怎么说。 -最重要的:你特别渴望,但是觉得你不配,或者不应该做的职业。这个可能就是你的calling! 我刚从第一份工作辞职的那个时候,也很迷茫,心里觉得我很喜欢教东西,成为培训师/教练,却觉得自己还太年轻。于是,我去Barns& Noble买了好几本书,其中一本是自我判断职业规划的书,见左图Overnight Career Choice这本书,涂涂写写,回答里面的问题,很有帮助。同时,我在Linkedin上面搜索可能成为我的mentor的人,我找到了和我毫不相识的NLP教练Helen Attridge, 电话采访了在旧金山的她,写成采访文章。她回答了我的很多问题。我向她寻求帮助的同时,也用我的文章帮助她传播她的智慧。后来,我回到上海,进入一家软实力培训公司,再后来,鼓起勇气参加盖洛普的课程成为一个优势教练,我估计自己是全世界最年轻的优势教练和软实力培训师吧。真的找到了自己的calling. Calling可以有不止一个。上次看了Emilie Wapnick 的Ted演讲 Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling 。 觉得很受用。所以,你可以是一个跆拳道黑带10段的精通3国语言的大厨,也可以是一个唱京剧的电子游戏竞技者。我们不用一定只选一件事情做一辈子。 为什么要接受自己呢?因为不接受没办法啊。如果你本来就没有语言天分,家人却想让你成为一个翻译家,你可以做得不错,但不是做得很痛苦吗。社会会告诉你理智的选择是什么,但理智的选择却不一定是让你找到人生意义的事情。答案都在你的肚子里,需要你找到合适的途径和工具挖掘自己的金矿。 第二步:培养性格和软实力 你是什么样的人比起你有什么样的技能,更重要。找工作80%都是你性格的体现。完成了第一步的了解和接受自己,第二步就是有意识得锻炼自己的软实力和性格。比如你上一次很没有面子是什么时候,很紧张,很嫉妒,很沮丧,是什么时候?你上次很春风得意是什么时候?几种情况下你为什么会有言行举止思维情感的变化? 把自己从凌乱的情感中抽离出来,客观得观察自己。有意识得把自己放在可以锻炼到性格的活动中。与小组合作完成项目时,你的领导力是怎么体现的?是强势,还是逆来顺受?你的沟通效果是怎样的?你给团队宣布坏消息时是怎么控制场面的?你做错了一件事时,是如何处理的? 相关文章: I […]
