After resigning at the age of 30 — how to find the direction of your life


Recently, a friend asked me, “I’m 30 years old. Since I quit my job, I’ve been looking for a job for two months. I haven’t found a suitable one. I don’t have the money to start a business. I’m confused. What can I do?”

At the age of 30, it should be a golden age for career development. Compared with those who have just joined the work, 30-year-old employees are richer in both work experience and social experience. They also have their own contacts and resources, so they should be a pillar in the workplace.

But the reality is that when many people reach the age of 30, they are very embarrassed. On the one hand, they feel that they have made a lot of achievements and have a lot of abilities. They can do some higher jobs and get higher salaries. But on the other hand, the market is also constantly changing, whether creative or physical, the company has put forward more requirements for employees. Therefore, many people in the 30-year-old, will fall into an embarrassing situation.

So, how to solve this problem? For a 30-year-old professional, how should you plan your career?

1、 Re understand yourself and avoid falling into the trap of “high vision and low hand”

In the workplace, there is a wrong perception of job hopping, that is, to change jobs, one must get a raise; otherwise, why change? In fact, according to the data of the first half of the year’s report on the mid year inventory of employees published by Zhilian, only 12.1% of the job hoppers got a raise; 17.6% of them not only did not increase, but also reduced their salary.

In other words, not everyone, every stage, can achieve job hopping and salary increase. In most cases, job hopping can maintain the current level above, is already a good level. In addition, it also shows that the salary of the enterprise for talents is almost uniform. You didn’t get 20000 yuan in the last company, even if you changed a company, it was also not good.

So, if you’ve been looking for a job for two months and still can’t find a suitable one, it’s likely that you’ve been looking for a job with high vision and low skill. You think you have the ability to do a job with a higher salary, but the company doesn’t think so, so the salary will always be low.

So, how can we become a high paid family? A simple way is to find out what you want to do first, then read the job requirements carefully, and then make a deliberate improvement according to the work requirements of the other party. For example, a friend of mine is engaged in IOS development. He found that many high salary positions require the framework of the Development Association. After studying the framework for half a year, he went out for an interview again. As a result, he successfully changed jobs.

2、 Don’t idle away your time at home. Use your career window to look for opportunities

When many people can’t find a job for a long time, they will doubt themselves or even abandon themselves. They may think that they have problems with their ability. Otherwise, why can’t they find a suitable job?

Here is to remind you, do not do nothing in your spare time, because it will only make your mind worse and worse. In addition, don’t always stay at home. The longer you stay, the more afraid you are to face it. Even if you really have nothing to do, you may find new opportunities by going out for a walk and chatting with people. You should know that opportunities are shy guys and you need to take the initiative to have them.

In fact, it is not easy to find a job. According to statistics, the average time for job hoppers to find a job is two months. In other words, it takes 1-3 months for most people to find a job. Instead of worrying about your own ability, you’d better take advantage of your career gap to improve your ability first.

I have tried to find a job for two months, but I am not in a hurry. On the one hand, before I quit my job, I have saved enough living expenses. Even if I can’t find a job for half a year, I don’t have to worry about life problems. On the other hand, I have learned a lot during this period, which makes me more competitive in the following workplace.

On the contrary, it may be a rare opportunity for learning and upgrading. You can make use of this time to do self-improvement, learn new technology, develop in a higher direction and improve your market competitiveness.

Sun Zhengyi, chairman of the software bank group, suffered from liver disease at the age of 23. According to the truth, this should affect his career! However, no, because sun Zhengyi spent the past two years sick, reading thousands of books. Moreover, according to the knowledge mentioned in the book, I have planned 40 kinds of industry development plans for myself, laying a foundation for the establishment of Softbank group in the future. In other words, this serious illness not only did not bring down sun Zhengyi, but also made him see clearly himself and the future development path.

As the saying goes, “it’s never too old to learn.”. This is especially true in this era of change. The knowledge we have learned from school has long been insufficient. If we can only find solutions from past experience when we encounter problems, it is of course difficult to break through. Learning can broaden people’s horizons and improve their cognition and ability. For example, I have mastered the secret of fast reading by reading “fast reading”, which makes my reading speed three times faster than before, and the learning effect has also been improved, achieving the effect of twice the result with half the effort. This is of great benefit to my study and self-improvement.

3、 Rather than wait and see, it is better to find a direction and try first

After resigning, my friend Xiao Li was very tangled for a period of time. He wanted to find a job as soon as possible, but he was always dissatisfied with the job interview.

Tangled, tangled, two months have passed. Later, he felt that he should not be aggrieved. He resolutely chose to study and settle for a period of time to improve his market competitiveness. As a result, after learning, he found a job that was satisfactory in all aspects. If you knew him, he would not be entangled. If you choose earlier, you will know the result earlier.

The so-called confused period is actually do not know what to do, what to choose. I feel that I have many choices, but I don’t know how to choose. I am confused and confused, and the time is in a hurry. The result is a vicious circle of confusion, anxiety, and fear of making choices.

Instead of doubting yourself in the tangle, it’s better to simply choose a direction to work hard and do something better than nothing. Because as long as you do something, you will contact all kinds of things and know all kinds of people, and opportunities may be hidden among them. Of course, even if the result is not so good, at least tried, also do not regret.

As a developer, it is particularly important to have a learning atmosphere and a communication circle. This is my IOS communication group519832104No matter you are Xiaobai or Danio, welcome to settle in, share experience, discuss technology, and communicate, learn and grow together!
