Mar 11, 2020 GeneralJob Change is Opportunity Let's start with SARS-CoV-2 and its impact on our world. I know this topic is everywhere and I promise this is just for the sake of the beginning of this post. source: https://unsplash.com/photos/mG28olYFgHI I've attended a few job interviews recently, and during one of them, I asked if they are worried about new virus panic. The manager answered that they are happy about the situation (from a business perspective) because there will be new opportunities available for them, which would not be in normal conditions. In my opinion, he was too confident, however, I had had similar kinds of thoughts a few days before that interview. I believe those biggest companies will spread their production across the world to be more independent from this kind of situation. The manager was definitely right about one thing: Change is Opportunity. This may be similar to situations we encounter every day at different moments in our lives. Starting a new project or a new job is a perfect moment to change find something better for yourself. It's much harder with everyday tasks. When you fit into your role change is not easy - you feel comfortable with the position, everybody treats you this way. Everything is balanced. Use changes in your life to grab as much as you can. I understand that changes are hard. You may struggle, but in the end, all the struggle will pay off. You can do it! source: https://unsplash.com/photos/ogz10BWwt4k However bigger changes are only one part of the story. How to find opportunities in everyday jobs? Do you have some tasks that nobody wants to do? Is there a silence when manager is looking for a volunteer? There are thousands of situations that are a pain in the ass for others. Try to be there in this kind of situation. If you are helpful, you'll be remembered and this will be beneficial for the team and (especially) for you! But remember, change is like a storm. If you're not prepared it'll wreck you, but if you are, there are no stronger winds that can push you in the right direction. source: https://unsplash.com/photos/eA2t5EvcxU4 What is more satisfying than moving forward in your life?
