2013PETS阅读:没明白的20件事III
A New Job a Year Isn’t a Good Thing­­– 1-year stints don’t tell me that you’re so talented that you keep outgrowing your company. It tells me that you don’t have the discipline to see your own learning curve through to completion. It takes about 2-3 years to master any new critical skill, give yourself at least that much time before you jump ship. Otherwise your resume reads as a series of red flags on why not to be hired.
一年换一个工作不是好事——一年的工作时间不会证明,你才华过人,公司已经无法满足你的发展需要了。它只会表明,你缺乏完成自身学习曲线所需的纪律性。掌握任何新的关键技能都需要大约2-3年,在你跳槽前,你至少需要给自己这么长时间。否则的话,你的简历读起来就像是一系列关于你为什么不能被录用的警告信号。

People Matter More Than Perks – It’s so trendy to pick the company that offers the most flex time, unlimited meals, company massages, game rooms and team outings. Those should all matter, but not as much as the character of your founders and managers. Great leaders will mentor you and will be a loyal source of employment long after you’ve left. Make a conscious bet on the folks you’re going to work for and your commitment to them will pay off much more than those fluffy perks.
人比福利待遇更重要——年轻人非常热衷于挑选那些提供最富弹性的工作时间、数不胜数的饭局、按摩服务、娱乐室和集体出游等福利的公司。这些福利待遇当然应该考虑,但其重要性远不及公司创始人和管理者的品质。卓越的领导者将指导你,即便你离职很长时间之后,他们也将成为一个可靠的就业源头。有意识地把你的前程压在那些你打算为之工作的人身上,这种忠诚带来的回报将远远超过那些华而不实的福利待遇。

Map Effort to Your Professional Gain– You’re going to be asked to do things you don’t like to do. Keep your eye on the prize. Connect what you’re doing today, with where you want to be tomorrow. That should be all the incentive you need. If you can’t map your future success to your current responsibilities, then it’s time to find a new opportunity.

把今日之努力反映在明日的回报上——你将被要求做一些你不喜欢做的事情。请把注意力放在奖赏上面。把你今天正在做的事情,与你明天希望获取的成就联系起来。这应该是你所需要的全部激励。如果你无法将未来的成功与当下的责任关联在一起,那么就到了找寻新机遇的时候了。

Speak Up, Not Out – We’re raising a generation of sh-t talkers. In your workplace this is a cancer. If you have issues with management, culture or your role & responsibilities, SPEAK UP. Don’t take those complaints and trash-talk the company or co-workers on lunch breaks and anonymous chat boards. If you can effectively communicate what needs to be improved, you have the ability to shape your surroundings and professional destiny.
畅所欲言,不要窃窃私语——我们正在养育一代喋喋不休的碎嘴子。在你的工作场所,这是一种癌症。如果你对管理层、公司文化或者你的角色和职责有意见,那就畅所欲言。不要把这些埋怨,以及那些关于公司或同事的垃圾谈论拿到午休时间和匿名聊天室去说。如果你能够就需要改善的地方进行有效的交流沟通,你就有能力塑造你的环境和自身职业生涯的命运。

You Need At Least 3 Professional Mentors– The most guaranteed path to success is to emulate those who’ve achieved what you seek. You should always have at least 3 people you call mentors who are where you want to be. Their free guidance and counsel will be the most priceless gift you can receive.
你需要至少三位专业导师——最有保证的成功之路,是效仿那些已经取得了你所期望的成绩的人。自始至终,你都应该至少认识三位你可以尊称为导师,已经抵达你希翼的高度的人。他们的免费指导和忠告,将是你能够收到的最无价的礼物。
