I have been in limbo for more than ten years by foreign trade customers, but I have been brilliant too
When I first graduated in 2007, most of my classmates went back to their hometown to work. I wrote letters of recommendation to two large companies in Hangzhou, and the result was that I would not recruit new people for the time being.
After the failure, I started to blindly submit resumes. Even if I became a bully, I could not find the job I wanted.
Finally, in the small corner of Mimi in a pile of recruitment notices in the publicity column of the talent market, I saw a post for a business assistant. I hesitated to look at the name of the company. This is the company that was rejected before. Although I wonder why such a big company put up a job advertisement there, I dream of joining such a big company. So I called the above number and got the interview opportunity. It turned out that the department manager hired the business assistant himself.
The first round of interview was his own, and the second round was just one of his British clients and asked him to interview me. The old man asked several questions, very tricky, perhaps newborn calves are not afraid of tigers, quick response nonsense a successful got his praise. Among several interviewees, my hardware condition was not outstanding, and I won by the old man’s affirmation and recommendation with quick thinking and sincerity.
Many years later, he met the old man again and had dinner with him. He asked me why I left my job. He gave me such a good chance. I was speechless. I can’t tell him that I was too young to be short-sighted. He angrily gave me three words: Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!
In this way, I started my foreign trade after graduation without understanding and naturally. On the second day of work, I followed the boss to meet the customers for negotiations until more than 11 o’clock at night. Then I went back to the company to make minutes of the meeting and relevant quotations and sent them to the customers. At that time, I didn’t feel it would be a super hard job. I became a soldier who went to the battlefield with little training. …
In the first month, he followed up the customers while receiving the guidance of the boss and went to the factory to receive product training. In the second month, he started to fight alone and directly followed up the customers. I adapted well. People from other departments praised me in front of the boss, saying that he had found a good prospect. The boss also appreciated me more and more. If you want to wear the crown, you must bear its weight. The world will not be deceived by me! In the third month, the boss gave me an American customer, the Top3 in the industry, to develop independently, and copied the email to him. Since then, it has started a sour, sweet and bitter journey to develop the U.S. market. From email quotation after quotation, proofing after proofing, to cost breakdown of dozens of excel, the data inside have been changed and changed. Although it is false and true, it really vomited blood and looked at thick English data.
Then there was the factory inspection. Because of a dog problem, the first factory inspection failed and the second one was successful. U.S. headquarters procurement boss came, a huge group of people, this time the boss finally stood in front of me, finally is to finalize the order. In the process, I basically travel for at least 20 days a month. Sam, the head of domestic procurement, comes several times a month and gradually becomes a good personal friend.
At that time, I wrote most of the mails he sent to the United States. I sent them to him, and then he sent the three words FYI to foreign countries! Sometimes I called in the middle of the night and asked me to change my mail. How can I write it to Laomei to accept it? At that time, I felt that this person was lazy and used everything as a doctrine. However, it is precisely because of his request that after studying Yibing rice course, I found that my mail has been qualified for so many years. Sometimes it is not a disadvantage to pay more, besides, I need to write an email to him. I just need to perfect it on that basis.
The boss asked me, you two have such a good relationship, do you think it is good or bad for your work? I said that we are the relationship between supplier business and office procurement at work, and we are friends in private, but the advantages outweigh the disadvantages at work. “Cheng also Xiao He defeated Xiao He”, probably is the way it is. Although other customers did not neglect, this customer occupied more than half of my time.
After the order was stable, I offered to resign. Looking back now, that is why:
1. The huge workload caused great psychological pressure, and almost all of them were on business trips and working overtime in those months. In order to work overtime and rent the house again, it is only 10 minutes walk from the company. At that time, I was immature and no one came to reason with me. I poured chicken soup to relieve the psychological pressure.
2.High-intensity work makes me lose my hair and lose sleep. Even the acute gastroenteritis hasn’t recovered yet and I went on a business trip. I fell ill directly when I came back. I was in the emergency room of Zhejiang No.2 on New Year’s Day when others had a holiday.
3. Failed to apply for salesman. The big boss of the company is a little older. In his concept, he prefers male salesmen and thinks that women can’t do well in business. In addition to the boss’s active struggle, Sam affirmed my work as a major customer of the company and also helped me win. However, he only said that his ability is really good, and his position can only be a business assistant. Because I am young and full of praise from the boss and customers, I feel a little bloated and hurt by his actions.
4. Some people in the company and the boss are at the same level. From time to time, they stimulate me with a few words, saying that my ability to work so hard is not bad, and I am just a little assistant. Anyway, no matter how well the business is done, it will not belong to me. I can’t see the great leaders who have done so much hard work.
5. Although the eldest brother is highly appreciated here, he vaguely felt the estrangement between his colleagues. On the face of it, people are kind, but actually they always feel a little lonely.
When I was young, I really didn’t know a lot of things. I often had to have a backward look. Emotional intelligence is a very important thing. The boss asked me why I wanted to resign, and I thought of a reason he couldn’t refuse-I don’t like this industry, the products are too complicated. Talking about this matter many years later, he said that only when he likes it can he be enthusiastic. If he is not interested, he will definitely not be able to do it well. In fact, at that time, I also talked nonsense in order to resign smoothly.
After resigning, in 2008, when I was confident and eager to start my new journey, a financial crisis came quietly. Since then, from the emperor’s sole favor, all the way frustrated, finally directly into limbo, for so many years, limbo is really sad, limbo night is also very long ~ Many people have become estranged from each other after saying goodbye. Apart from the boss, who also meets with teachers and friends once a year, Sam, who hasn’t seen him in 11 years but has been keeping in touch with the factory boss. However, being in limbo, I must still know about the harem of the previous dynasties outside, so I concentrated on studying rice lessons, reading books and watching the wonderful sharing of rice friends.
You will surely say that ten years have passed, and the old people are as old as pearls, the holy family is no longer there, the general trend is gone, and there must be no place for you. However, the harem has been filled with new people year after year and has enjoyed great popularity for a while. However, few young people have taken the second place. The ups and downs of the past experience, has been integrated into my blood and flesh. What we need to do now is to continuously broaden our thinking and improve our ability to act. I believe it will eventually erupt in precipitation! I told my friends that I was in limbo and wanted to go out. What should I do?
Friend a: over the wall!
Friend b: crossing!
Me: No, one day I will walk out of the cold palace gate in an open manner!
In the cold palace, the heart is not ended It was really a sad experience. …
If the customer’s heart and seabed needle are slightly wrong, they will lose their “grace” and end up squatting in a cold palace. However, if the day is to bring down a great responsibility to the people of this country, they must first suffer their heart and mind, strain their bones and muscles, starve their skin, deplete their bodies, and do whatever they do. Even in the “cold palace” at the moment, as long as you have the ability, don’t give up, accumulate wealth and make a comeback, it is not clear that you may still be in Weiyang palace!
