In August 2016, after graduating from overseas postgraduates, I successfully switched careers through school recruitment with the public account works of my student days, and it has been 2 years since I entered the industry as an Internet product operator.
In the past two years, my identity has gradually transitioned, and the boundaries of responsibility have become more and more blurred - of course, generally for the better.
As a theoretical "Scholar", I didn't go to 996's Internet giant when I entered the industry, but after personal career planning, in-depth interviews with the target company's employees, and extensive information collection, I decided to buy from several offers in my hand. , accept an offer that is not so glamorous in the eyes of some people.
The impact of such a choice is certainly there. For example, you cannot work with the top talents in the industry, you cannot enjoy the top resources, you cannot obtain a development plan with a sound foundation and a mature system, and your ability growth is limited.
But the benefits are self-evident: precisely because it is a blind spot, it is more suitable for responsible and aggressive idealists to enter the game. What I have done is to give full play to my strengths in the chaos, to be brave to take the lead, to express, and to speak up; when the project is difficult, I can strip the cocoon, quickly grasp the main line, and promote the project with super high-speed propulsion.
There's a kind of entrepreneurial thrill here, so to speak, where you have to go all out to look effortless. If I took over the offer of a large Internet Latest Mailing Database company two years ago, maybe I am still doing basic work day after day, and it is difficult to be assigned difficult tasks.
First, outstanding people are too congested, and it takes a longer period to highlight their personal abilities; second, there is no trial-and-error cycle, and the project has little tolerance for faults. Step-by-step and follow the distribution of growth can make people grow into excellent screws, but It is difficult to produce good leaders and entrepreneurs. From this point of view, the glory brought by savage growth cannot be obtained by the delicate flowers in the greenhouse.
Two years later, when I reviewed the experience during this period, the first year was completely spent in chores and trivialities.
When I first entered the workplace, I bowed my head to work, immersed myself in studying, and did all the dirty work, hard work, and tiring work in Internet operations. With one push and one text message, I can optimize dozens of versions, test hundreds of scenarios, explore, test, correct, verify, repeat... The average click rate can be increased from a few tenths to 10%, and the performance can be improved. From last to last, be first in 3 months.
This process is simple to say, and there are countless pressures and confusions in the middle. In that year, there was not a single day left, and the marketing tasks, execution, review, and planning were arranged every day, even during the long Spring Festival holiday.
This is my first job since I joined, and it is also the dirtiest and lowest job, but I ask myself that I have done it beautifully and have a clear conscience.
In the second year, the rotation is over, and the post is officially set, and it is fulfilled to stay in the position that I am passionate about.
Out of interest, outside of work responsibilities, began to contact more innovative businesses. At that time, the company intended to test the water for a new product. I used a crawler to crawl the relevant industry information, compiled it into an analysis report, and put it on the general manager's desk. A week later, he informed me to be transferred to the project team to be responsible for related work. This is also the business group I most yearn for. The project leader is a female senior with clear thinking, strong negotiation skills, and has operated super-large Internet precision marketing projects.
After joining this project team, what I have learned from my predecessors is more about project management experience. She began to delegate power to me, and also told me to be serious and hardworking. The most important thing is, don't give up your brains - don't use that dull-headed learning tyrant spirit. Here, does not apply.
You must learn to fight for your own interests, you must learn to be unyielding when faced with criticism, you must stand firm in confrontation, and you must learn to cooperate with different types of enterprises, companies, and departments. A good guide can inspire me more than I can bury myself in reading.
In addition, the significance of the team is self-evident. People in a company and department are always of various kinds. We cannot select partners, but we can take the initiative to approach partners with strong ability, professional skills, and good character, and learn with an open mind. There is a small group that is flexible, equal, innovative, open, and not torn apart, making you feel more at work.
