  • So as you think about making a career change,

    當你想要轉換跑道時

  • here are a few tips I hope you consider

    希望你可以考慮這幾個小訣竅

  • and a few things I've picked up along the way.

    和我一路走來學到的幾件事

  • First, there's three things to think about before you're ready to move on.

    首先,重新出發前 需要先思考這三件事

  • Number one: professional life is about learning.

    第一:職業生涯的本質就是學習

  • If you're not even interested in learning anymore,

    如果你連學習的興致都沒有

  • that's a huge red flag

    這就是在警告你 這個產業對你而言可能沒有未來

  • that there might not be a future for you in that industry.

    第二:轉換跑道靠的通常是直覺

  • Number two: career changes are often gut-driven.

    如果你經常失眠

  • If you constantly have sleepless nights

    清醒地盯著天花板思考

  • where you're wide awake staring at the ceiling thinking,

    「天呀!如果我不嘗試轉換跑道 或認真思考過未來

  • "Oh, man. I can't live with myself if I never try to make this change

    那我就太對不起自己了」

  • or if I don't even actually investigate it,"

    那麼請相信你的直覺

  • then trust your gut.

    也許這就是轉換跑道的時機

  • It might be time for that career change.

    另一方面

  • On the flip side,

    短期痛苦不該是轉換跑道的理由

  • one reason to not move on is short-term pain.

    如果你不喜歡老闆

  • If you don't like your boss

    或是辦公室同事很惱人

  • or people at the office are grating on you,

    這就不是轉換全新跑道的充分理由

  • that's actually not a good reason to absolutely change your career,

    因為轉換跑道後

  • because when you do change a career,

    通常要從基層做起

  • you generally have to start from the bottom,

    可能會經歷許多短期痛苦

  • and you'll probably feel a lot of short-term pain,

    也許是薪水不足,又或是沒有頭銜

  • whether it's through a lack of salary or lack of a title.

    每份工作中的痛苦都是無法避免的

  • Pain at any job is inevitable.

    如果你確信現在是時候轉換跑道了

  • So now you're convinced that it's time to change your career.

    那麼,就要立即著手這三件事

  • Then there's three things to do immediately.

    第一:人脈、人脈、人脈

  • First: network, network, network.

    建立事業需要好的前輩

  • No one ever builds a career without a good mentor

    或良好的人脈後盾

  • or a good support network.

    人脈的意思是

  • What I mean by networking is getting all the great advice

    盡可能收集所有好的建議

  • that you can possibly get.

    科技讓聯絡新朋友變得簡單

  • Technology has made it so simple to reach out to new people

    可以問「嘿,我在考慮轉換跑道

  • to say, "Hey, I'm thinking about making a career change.

    可以借我五分鐘聊聊嗎?」

  • Do you have just five minutes to chat with me?"

    這樣的熱忱和求知慾 以及當一塊海綿的能力

  • That passion and that hunger and that ability to be a sponge

    會吸引到超棒的前輩

  • really attracts awesome mentors

    和願意花時間在你身上的人

  • and people willing to give you their time

    進而提供一些好的建議給你

  • to give you some good advice.

    所以,走出去多認識新朋友吧

  • So go out there and meet new people.

    第二件需要馬上做的事是

  • The second thing you need to do immediately

    建立財務後盾

  • is shore up your finances.

    現實是,當你轉換跑道時

  • The reality is, when you change your career,

    要麼從較低的職位做起

  • you'll either start with a job with a lower title

    不然就是低薪,甚至是無薪

  • or lower pay or maybe even no pay,

    特別是選擇自己創業的時候

  • especially if you're starting your own business.

    所以,確認你的財務狀況準備就緒

  • So going out there and making sure your finances are in order

    才能減少過渡期的痛苦

  • to make the transition less painful

    這真的非常重要

  • is really, really important.

    就我個人而言 是從律師轉職成電玩設計師

  • For me personally, as I made the transition from being an attorney

    我需要至少 6 到 12 個月的 銀行個人預備金

  • over to a video game creator,

    你不一定需要 6 到 12 個月

  • I wanted to have at least six to 12 months of personal runway in the bank.

    但請誠實評估你所需要的金額

  • Six to 12 months might not be the right number for you,

    第三,如果你還沒準備好放手一搏

  • but be honest with yourself on what that number should be.

    就先從副業開始吧

  • Number three, if you're not ready to make the full jump right at this moment,

    副業可以是尋找你想進入的新產業

  • then get your side hustle on.

    從中找一間公司擔任志工

  • Side hustles could be anything from volunteering with an organization

    也可以是週末兼職創業

  • that's in the new industry you want to go into,

    這可以讓你免費體驗到 你是否真心熱愛這件事

  • could be starting your business part-time on the weekends.

    當你準備好向前邁進

  • It's a free way to get a taste to see if you really love something.

    又或許你已經跨出了第一步

  • So you're ready to make the move

    現在,你應該考慮進行這三件事

  • or maybe you already made the move.

    第一:不要……我重複一次

  • Here are three things you should think about doing, right now.

    不要斷絕關係

  • One: do not -- I repeat -- do not burn bridges.

    你花了好幾年才建立起的人脈

  • You spent years building those bridges,

    為什麼現在要斷絕關係

  • why burn them now?

    這世界很小

  • The world is such a small place,

    特別是網路平台盛行

  • especially with all these online platforms,

    相信我,你還會再見到這些人

  • that, believe me, you will see these people again

    可能還是在最狼狽的時候遇到

  • and probably in the most inopportune times.

    第二:盤點你在前幾份工作中 所學習到的經驗

  • Number two: take stock of what you've learned

    這些經驗大多也可能適用於 你的新工作或新跑道

  • in your previous career or careers.

    無論是人際互動、團隊合作

  • Most likely, a lot of those things are really applicable

    或是應付鳥人鳥事

  • to your new job and your new career,

    這些能力到處都派得上用場

  • whether it's interacting with people, playing on a team

    不管在哪個產業,你都會遇到爛人

  • or dealing with jerks and assholes.

    無一倖免,大家都要想辦法解決

  • All those things are really universally applicable.

    你可能也已經有了一套方法

  • You'll find jerks no matter what industry you're in;

    最後,要開始新工作時 你一定會很緊張

  • no one's immune to it, everyone's got to figure it out,

    但別擔心,深呼吸一口

  • and you probably know how to do it already.

    這是我想對你說的話

  • Lastly, when you start your new job, you're going to be nervous.

    你現在是新團隊的一員了

  • But don't worry, take a deep breath,

    身邊的人都在為你加油打氣

  • because this is what I want to tell you:

    因為你的成功便是他們的成就

  • you're part of a new team now,

    歡迎來到你的新職業

  • and everyone around you is rooting for your success,

  • because your success is their success.

  • So welcome to your new career.
