“Boss, how do I make this Excel?”
“I don’t work overtime. Let someone else do it.”
“Are you new here, too? How much is the salary?”
In this autumn, I interviewed a lot of people, including top students from famous universities, but the rate of passing the interview was not as high as expected.
Why is that? Round after round of interviews, it is obvious that many people are still facing workplace problems with students’ thinking. It’s like the question type has changed from multiple choice to cloze, but they’re still sticking to ABC.
Which students’ thinking is likely to make you “insecure” and “alarming” in the workplace?
Treat the workplace like school
Mistake: Dumping a problem on a colleague or leader without thinking, thinking that a show of hands will give you the right answer.
Common lines 👇
“No one taught me how to format the document, so IT was a bit late.”
You’re here to work, everyone else is here to work, and there’s no time to waste. If you’re relying too much on “asking questions” and expecting others to teach you how to do things in the workplace, get in the mindset that this isn’t school, and it’s a shame to be a pushover.
In addition to the necessary work handover and difficult questions, work matters should learn to take the initiative to find methods, do not be silly as a “giant baby” waiting for feeding.
Baidu to the problem will not be asked, baidu can not grasp the key to ask, get method after do not repeat.
No tasks = Free time
Myth: When the leader is not assigned, he or she will let loose at the desk, reading novels, watching videos or even sleeping.
Common lines 👇
“I’ve done the rest. Why can’t I have a rest?”
The “homework” mindset can be deadly in the workplace because you position yourself as an “assembly-line worker” and don’t pursue or think about your work. If you’re just a “merciless punching machine,” where are leaders going to find your value?
Put yourself in your position. If you were a leader, how would you feel if you saw your subordinate lying on his desk playing games and watching videos?
If you don’t have any work at hand, you can take the initiative to ask your supervisor if there is anything you need help with, or review your work achievements and review what you did well and what you did badly, so as to better optimize your future work.
Fail to report or overreport
Myth: Either work hard and never report. Or they report in detail and lack a sense of priority.
Common lines 👇
“Good leadership, today I bound a document, to three colleagues took express, now is preparing to write an article.”
As a new employee in the workplace, sometimes you will be confused about the boundaries between reporting and not reporting.
The most direct result of inadequate reporting is that your boss is unable to control your work progress, which affects the next work schedule. If a leader doesn’t know what you’ve done, you’ve done nothing. At the same time, failing to report a problem at work may lead to a further escalation of the problem, resulting in irreversible consequences.
When you overreport, you present an inefficient expression. It can take a long time for your manager to sift through your presentation and leave out the valuable information.
Leaders want to know and understand, must timely report; If the leader may not know about his work achievements, he must report them in time; Report your work and tell the truth.
Afraid to ask
Myth: Thinking a request will be a burden or worrying that it will be rejected.
Common lines 👇
“I didn’t mention it because I was afraid you wouldn’t approve…”
Every professional is more or less burdened with “KPI”. In order to achieve phased goals, certain resources are needed to support them. Newcomers, for a variety of reasons, often have a harder time asking.
But are leaders really “tired of being asked”? nono~
What the boss dislikes is unreasonable demands. So how do you decide if a request is reasonable?
1. If the work cannot be carried out without this part of support, it must be mentioned;
2. If the resources you apply for add value to the job, you can mention them.
3. If the expected payback ratio of the support requested is not reasonable, don’t mention it.
1. Determine whether a request is essential, plus, or unnecessary before making it
2. Don’t be afraid to ask
In fact, when senior students first entered the workplace, they were also troubled by these problems and received a lot of criticism.
